When it comes to shopping, Europe has some pretty nifty things: great design, goodquality products and cool concepts. Plus they have things that we could never find here, in Canada. Since Europe is now borderless people buy and trade whatever they please. In Poland, the best and most popular site to do this on is Allegro.pl
Based in the city of Poznań Allegro.pl was launched in 1999 by Arjan Bakker and 19 year old computer programmer Tomek Dudziak. Initially the company consisted of only eight people and worked out of a two bed room apartment. Today, the company is the biggest on-line trading portal in Poland (even bigger and more popular than eBay) and it employs 300 people and have 5 million clients.
Allegro regularly interacts with their customers through networking events that it puts on throughout the year. The company also hosts a large conference where nearly 4000 Allegro users can participate in a number of workshops and seminars aimed at teaching them new skills and expanding their knowledge in fields like marketing, promotion, social media and technology. There are also lots of opportunities for Allegro users to network, share ideas and socialize.
So if you’re ever in the mood for that special European something have a look at Allegro. And if you’veshopped on this site before tell us what you think.
