That makes the thing attractive to end customers. Important: Made in Bocholt mediates the deals only. Ordered and paid in the shops themselves, which thus retain the customer relationship. The first cooperation partner is Hungerkamp. The household goods specialist automatically integrates more than 1600 offers from its online offer into the Bocholt Shop via one interface at a stroke. "We use the Internet as a virtual shop window. And since we do that, we have 20 percent more customers in the brick-and-mortar business, "says CEO Petra Hungerkamp explaining her motivation. [...]
