Local Town Square
What's a Local Town Square

Town Square is an open public space commonly found in the heart of a traditional town used for community gatherings and events, it has retail space; food courts; and vendor stalls .

LeRumba offers Virtual Town Squares for the World...

Our vision is to create Virtual Town Square for each and every town/city in the world; a public space for all people to gather virtually to promote, buy, sell, trade, find jobs, share news, views, reviews, knowledge and resources, make deals, address community issues, share and plan events and festivals, socialize, entertain, and find attractions and things to do around their town.

What's Your Mission with Local Town Squares

Virtual Town Square is a public space for all people to gather electronically.

Adults go there to meet their friends to share news, views, reviews, ideas, find jobs and make deals. Young people congregate after school.

Any buy, sell, trade, or deal making activity; any exchange of gossip, ideas, community issues;  neighborhood plans for events and festivals; exchange of leads for jobs, or business; socializing; entertaining; and finding attractions and things to do around their town - it all goes down here.

It is where breaking news is spread, and follow-up conversations occur. Some people are active participants, others like to sit back and observe, but everyone wants to spend time there.

This is what Local Town Square can... and should be.

Our mission: “To create local Advertising, Promotions, and Integrated Marketing ecosystem for small businesses and consumers... and develop Virtual Town Squares for the world - an online public space for all people to gather anywhere from anywhere!”
