Shop on­line at Oliva in­door mar­ket

Costa Levante News - - NEWS -

By Sa­man­tha Kett OLIVA in­door mar­ket plans to start home de­liv­er­ies and on­line or­der­ing, and has even taken to so­cial me­dia, launch­ing it­self on Facebook and In­sta­gram.

The coun­cil wants to at­tract younger adults who would typ­i­cally go to su­per­mar­kets in­stead, and thinks the best way to do so is to go dig­i­tal.

“What is not on the in­ter­net doesn't ex­ist to young peo­ple, so we con­sider it es­sen­tial for the in­door mar­ket to get out there,” says lo­cal trade coun­cil­lor Pepe Salazar.

A com­plete strat­egy over­haul took place a few years ago, says stall­hold­ers' as­so­ci­a­tion chair Mar­garita Cri­ado.

One of the changes she is most proud of is re­port­edly their cus­tomer ser­vice, which is now 'much more hu­man­ised and at­ten­tive'.

As well as the so­cial me­dia sites – found by search­ing on them for Mer­cat Mu­nic­i­pal Oliva – the in­door mar­ket soon plans to start its own web­site and on­line shop.

This will in­clude a ' click and col­lect' and a home-de­liv­ery op­tion.
