A busy shopping season is here and it’s all about what gas prices are for a typical day.
But what about a busy shopping day for a single person?
That’s where your shopping experience becomes an opportunity for a different kind of retailer to take advantage of your attention.
That’s the idea behind a new kind of transactional commerce marketplace.
It’s being built in collaboration between WalMart and a Calgary-based company called Marketplaces Calgary.
Marketplaces’ website is a little confusing, but the platform it is built on is called Marketplace Marketplace for Gas, and it will let retailers and brands use one another’s sites to sell their goods and services.
For example, you can have a grocery store on the website, a discount grocer selling groceries on their website, or an online store that can offer a complete range of goods.
There are so many things you can sell on Marketplace for gas, and many of those items are being offered by individual retailers.
It has been a lot of fun to be a part of it, said Scott MacDonald, CEO of Marketplaces.
The marketplace is designed for convenience, MacDonald said.
It can be very efficient if you just buy something online and you go to the store and then you can go to a different store.
“There’s not too many people out there who can afford to buy gas,” MacDonald said, noting that most people in Alberta don’t have enough money to buy their own gas.
He added that the Marketplace for Gazes program, which launched earlier this year, has been instrumental in helping small businesses create sales opportunities for themselves.
The platform is currently open for two months, and is only available to consumers in Alberta.
MacDonald said the goal is to have all of the retail sites working by the end of October.
It is also looking to expand in other provinces, including Ontario.
The Marketplace for Oil website currently only supports Ontario, with no plans for other provinces.
MacDonald has said he expects to add new listings to the site soon, but he did not provide details.
“If we get it all done, we’ll have the Marketplace online for all of Canada,” MacDonald told CBC News.
“We’ll be launching that in September and the Marketplace in September.”
MacDonald said Marketplace for oil will be a “very exciting platform” for the industry, which is currently undergoing an industry transition to a cleaner, more efficient energy economy.
He said it will be interesting to see how many stores and stores of various sizes respond to the platform.
For now, MacDonald says he is focused on finding ways to connect retailers with each other and the people they sell to. “
That will be something we look at.”

“One of the things that has made this project so fun is the fact that there are so, so many different ways that we can engage,” he said, adding that he hopes to bring other retail players on board soon.
He says the Marketplace is also aiming to bring “an incredible experience” to customers who are looking to buy and sell goods.
“This is a really great platform for the people who are selling their goods online and want to be part of the experience,” he added.
“It’s really fun to see it and it makes people want to come back and shop.”
