Adding More Communities

Consensus Technology is excited to announce the creation of www.OurCommunityStores.com, designed for merchants who want to extend their customer reach by selling goods and services online, but do not have the time or resources to commit to creating and marketing their own e-commerce sites.

The architecture of the site is designed on a drill-down concept: National, Regional, State, Regions within a State, and Cities or Towns. The first "communities" on the site will be the "United States," "New Hampshire" and "Monadnock Region." New communities will be added as enough Merchants, products and services are available in an area to make a discrete "community."

In the interim, Merchants can join a broader community store. For instance, a Merchant from Peterborough, New Hampshire, would join the Monadnock Region community, until there were enough members from Peterborough to make a "Peterborough" community. Their products would then appear in Peterborough, Monadnock Region, New Hampshire and U.S. searches.

In the same way, a Merchant in New Hampshire and outside the Monadnock Region would join the "New Hampshire" community, and products would appear in the New Hampshire and U.S. communities, but would not appear in the Monadnock Region or Peterborough communities. When enough Merchants joined Our Community Stores from that region, something such as "White Mountains Region or Seacoast Region, NH" would be added to our list of communities, and when enough had joined from a town or city within that new Regional Community, a another "Town or City" Community would be added. And on and on, until everyone on the planet can shop "locally" at their "community store."

When enough a Merchants in another state join, another "State" Community would be added. And on and on, until everyone on the planet can shop "locally" at their "community store."

How To Get Involved

  • Shoppers: Shop online at OurCommunityStores.com. If merchants in your community are not involved, encourage them to do so. This way on the occasions you cannot get to the store to buy locally, you can shop locally online.
