City Shoppe empowers small business owners (shoppes) to automate their businesses, increase their revenues, and focus on their forte offerings. City Shoppe is currently free to new shoppes and offers a range of attractive, white-glove service options, including virtual shoppe creation and 24/7 customer support.
