  • Context, issues : In the Livradois-Forez regional natural park, many shops in town centers have closed down, thus destroying the commercial centers. A monograph has been produced to better understand the new needs of consumers and the situation of local shop in the territory, a commercial strategy has also been developed as part of the Scot.
    The dispersion of shops but also their aging leads to a decrease in their attractiveness, threatening their durability. The question is now about the reconversion of the former commercial and the locals that are now vacant. Commercial locals sometimes not very identifiable and vacant locals very degraded without project penalize the dynamics of the merchantable lines. In puy-Guillaume, the street Joseph Claussat has fifteen shops and the street Edouard Vaillant 6 shops. To preserve the vitality of the town center, it appeared important to have a real strategy of commercial revitalization to ensure the continuity of business assets.
