In addition to a 0% honor loan, entrepreneurs supported by the Initiative Gard association (member of the Initiative France network) can now enjoy a free sales and exhibition area in the central aisle of the shopping arcade of Casino Cap Costières, the largest shopping center in Gard.
In Lyon, Unibail is launching the shopping center of tomorrow
Managed by Mercialys, the property company of the Casino group, this shopping center located in Nîmes offers, from mid-June until the end of November at least, part of its aisles to young companies supported by the association.
“This is a pilot process for the group.
We will see in a few months how to apply this device elsewhere in France within the framework of a national partnership with Initiative France ”
, explains Laura Biolé, director of the Cap Costières gallery.
At the launch, it was a young theme park, Dinopedio Parc, located in the north of Gard, which promoted its activities;
the following week, it is a publishing house of children's books which proposed its works.
“Craftsmen and traders who do not yet have a shop have also asked to occupy this space.
We hope that they will be able to develop sales there
says Alice Jollivet, Director of Initiative Gard.
Auto-entrepreneurs still numerous despite the crisis
The only obligation for the companies hosted is to be present throughout the shopping center's working hours, from Monday to Saturday from 9:30 am to 8 pm. Originally, Mercialys had offered to offer a vacant commercial unit, but the business has found a buyer in the meantime. The lease was signed by a contractor previously supported by… Initiative Gard.
