Vienna (OTS / ÖVP-PK) – The ÖVP consumer protection spokesman Abg. Peter Weidinger presented the “Department Store Austria” initiative presented today by Economics Minister Margarete Schramböck and WKÖ President Harald Mahrer. “I appeal to all consumers to support Austrian businesses and companies, especially in view of the corona crisis, and to buy Austrian products. That helps the company, the workforce, the Austrian economy and thus all of us, ”Weidinger is convinced.
The “Kaufhaus Österreich” is a real red-white-red platform that serves to strengthen online trade and make it more attractive. As a digital basic infrastructure, it enables dealers and companies to present their web shops at one address. This means that customers can shop directly in the respective online shop after their digital window shopping. “Kaufhaus Österreich” supports regional online shopping and sales throughout Austria – and therefore added value and jobs at home, “Weidinger emphasizes and wants to motivate Austrian consumers to shop nationally and regionally, thus promoting the Christmas business and to support domestic trade in the difficult economic situation caused by the corona.
