"Dark Blinds"

Last March, the government paved the way for town halls to regulate the establishment of “

dark stores

”, these premises where platforms, such as Getir, store products to be delivered.

Now considered warehouses and not shops, they may be forced to close if the local urban plan (PLU) prohibits this type of activity at their address.

The “

quick trade

”, which emerged thanks to the confinements and the Covid-19 epidemic since 2020, offers in a few minutes the delivery of everyday products, similar to those for sale in a convenience store.

But this activity is criticized by many elected officials around the world who denounce pell-mell the arrival of "

warehouse cities

", nuisances for local residents, even the development of

the "lazy economy
