Local Stores for Global Customers, SugarTrends
Imagine to enjoy a nice journey next to professionals who are working everyday in a startup whose main objective is to help local stores promoting their products. That’s the way I started the first time I come to Germany last wednesday, 21th of October, in Cologne with SugarTrends.
I heard about SugarTrends in Madrid when my friend Sandra asked me to come to visit some stores trying to find local wonderful shops and unique products for a good friend. I didn’t know some months after that I would be in Cologne meeting Tim, Christian and their team in their working center. They took me in the office from the first time kindly as a friend and I had the possibility to work there in my stuff in a motivating atmosphere.
SugarTrends started with the idea of presenting online local stores that carry special products to an international crowd. Thus, the SugarTrends marketplace can protect those particular small stores to remain profitable in a fierce online competition, while at the same time help each city to remain its local touch, not replacing boutiques and small stores by large chains.
“Our goal is to create a unique shopping experience and help small stores from around the world to present themselves and their great products online.” Tim & Christian
More than 150 stores, 40 cities and 19 countries are doing SugarTrends an international startup that offers more than 3000 products. They are creating an exclusive shopping experience for each customer, by helping them to discover special products from different corners and cultures of the world.
You can shop for yourself, buy gifts for friends or surprise your beloved ones with something special. It can be from afar, but also from a nice boutique in your city. It makes Sugartrends a versatile service providing products as unique as the Jackinger, created by Tim Lagerpusch 😉
If you have any doubt about SugarTrends, you need to buy something special or you are a local seller looking for a way to expand your products, you can contact them here.
It was a pleasure to be there spending two fantastic days in Cologne and meeting new friends from all over the world. My best wishes for Tim, Christian and all the team of SugarTrends, I hope we can see each other in the future. Big hug! 🙂
