(Jmh) – A little over two years after its launch, Letzshop.lu is about to experience another change. As of February 1, 2021, the platform dedicated exclusively to local e-commerce will no longer be managed by Jerry Klein. A departure “motivated neither by a disagreement, nor by any dissatisfaction of one or the other party”, but by “the opening of a position which interests me strongly and for which I had to decide enough quickly ”, details the person who set up and made the project a reality.


E-commerce is on the rise and the national purchasing platform is also benefiting from it. Since November, she has even managed to place 350,000 euros worth of gift certificates valid on the site.


To succeed him, the GIE created by the Ministry of Middle Classes, 18 municipalities, the Chamber of Commerce and the Luxembourg Confederation of Commerce is therefore looking for “a profile with two main skills: a mastery of online sales and managerial experience” , summarizes Gilles Scholtus, in charge of general management within the Ministry of Middle Classes.

Posted on December 24, the ad is looking for people “with a master’s degree in business management, economics, business strategy, management or have experience in the field”, who have professional experience “At least five years old” and who display “good written and oral expression skills in Luxembourgish, French, English and German”.


The measure is symbolic, but the gesture should be emphasized: the Ministry of Middle Classes has decided not to require the contribution of 500 euros to traders who will be registered on the online sales platform in 2021.


As a reminder, Letzshop.lu has succeeded in the development of e-commerce in direct connection with containment and the various health measures implemented throughout the year. With some 370,000 listings, the platform currently brings together some 500 local businesses in around one hundred localities. “If confinement has considerably increased activity on the platform, it also offered us a certain visibility which means that a new peak can be observed at the end of the year”, assures Gilles Scholtus.

And the latter estimate the number of transactions at “20 times the level observed in the pre-containment period, while it reached between 40 and 50 times this figure between last March and May”. If no application has been received to date, the post “will have to be allocated relatively quickly, even if we will take the time to choose the right profile”, assures the senior official.
