“Our goal, that of the municipal government team, is to continue fostering and supporting local commerce in Alcorcón. For this reason, with this initiative, which has the sponsorship and collaboration of the City Council, we promote and support sustainability, entrepreneurship and the employment of small businesses. Without them, it would not be possible for our city to continue with the current trend of job creation, as reflected in data for 8 consecutive months, and that make our municipality a leader in job creation, “said Silvia Cruz, first Deputy mayor.
In addition, Silvia Cruz indicated that “local commerce not only has an economic revitalizing role but also a broader role of collaboration and creation of social life among the neighbors of a neighborhood or zone. Thus, from the Consistory we also launch various campaigns to promote small businesses, such as campaigns aimed at florists, stationers or the launching of the Seal Trade Alcorcón, for which we want to recognize those businesses that offer their services and products to customers with criteria of Quality, closeness and making them feel at home “.
With this, there are already four editions of the Catwalk, and all of them have had great support from the neighbors of Alcorcón. The merchants and businessmen were very excited about the new success of the Pasarela, which has become an unmissable event for all the residents of the neighborhood. Thus, they took the opportunity to transfer to the first deputy mayor, Silvia Cruz, the great work of coordination and the constant support of the City Council of Alcorcón and the Government team to make possible the celebration of this original initiative year after year.
