Presentation

  • Context, issues : We are four founders of the IMAGINE association and we have the project to reopen the bakery / grocery store in our village, Parly, closed since August 31, 2019. Our bakery / grocery store will be called Parly Moi d'Amour.
    The Parlycois are deprived of their local trade since several months and, therefore, impatiently await the reopening of this one. 
  • Goals : The primary objective of Parly Moi d'Amour is to enable the inhabitants of Parly and neighboring villages (also deprived of this business) to find their bakery / grocery store, to stock up on fresh bread and so-called standard necessities , short and / or biological circuits.

    Our other objectives:
    - recreate a social bond: welcoming place, for exchanges, advice, listening, meetings and dynamism.
    - offer services to the person
    - make quality bread
    - develop the local economy
    - revitalize the local economic fabric by creating relationships and exchange networks with the actors of Parly
    - develop the associative mode
    - offer entertainment
    - enhance local producers and in particular those in Parly
    - to respect the environment
    - retain our customers
    - communicate on the association 
  • Targeted audience : - mainly the inhabitants of Parly
