Ankorstore a pour mission de permettre le développement d’un commerce local et authentique. La plateforme Internet veut proposer aux commerces physiques indépendants, qui ont été malmenés ces dernières années par la grande distribution et les géants du e-commerce, des moyens techniques, financiers et logistiques pour se réinventer et proposer une expérience unique.

Ses fondateurs refusent de voir leurs centres villes désertés et envahis par des drive, des points relais et des distributeurs de billets.

Ils ont donc décidé de mettre tout leur savoir-faire (anciens fondateurs et dirigeants d’A Little Market, Etsy et Vestiaires Collective) au service de cette industrie qui pèse plus de 2000 millards d’Euros en Europe (source Insee).
