The Government of Catalonia’s Consortium of Trade, Craft and Fashion (CCAM) has announced a round of subsidies for the new implementation of shops and commercial improvement of establishments and the installation of “Click& Collect” systems. Applications for this new round of grants, which is part of the annual subsidy plan held by the Consortium of Trade, Craft and Fashion (CCAM) of the Department of Business and Knowledge, can be submitted from today until the budget has been exhausted and no later than 31 December.
The aim of these grants is to boost trade by recovering empty premises, refurbishing establishments or municipal market stalls and establishing collection systems in establishments:
- Regarding the refurbishment of establishments, the subsidy envisages refurbishing stalls in fixed municipal markets, adapting non-fixed municipal market stalls or reforming street shops which are at least 10 years old.
- In the field of implementation of “Click& Collect” systems, the grants provide for the installation of digitised collection point systems (through the purchase of lockers and/or cupboards with appropriate software). The establishments that can benefit from this are street shops and fixed municipal market stalls with enough space to include digitised collection points.
- In the field of recovery of empty premises, the subsidy envisages the purchase, lease or administrative concession of premises; the use of windows of closed-down premises; the continuity of commercial enterprises or the extension of sale areas by attaching new premises.
The beneficiaries are trade, services, fashion and craft businesses, as well as fixed and mobile municipal market stalls. Applications can be submitted through this link.
With this new round of subsidies, the CCAM once more shows its support for trade in order to respond to the great challenges facing it, which are the creation of competitive business models and lending prestige to this sector.
