With fewer operations, the activity takes place in the streets of La Plata, according to a study by the Argentine Chamber of Commerce
Street sales continue without letting the arm run in the streets: no longer just resist, but benefit from the more and more spread out agents, are anchored and gain ground: according to the Chamber of Commerce of Argentina (CAC) there is 8% more of illegal jobs on public roads than in last month's measurement.
The data are reminiscent of the local commercial sector, for what they consider to be unfair competition with products of dubious origin that pay no taxes.
According to the survey of the chamber that brings trade at national level, it turned out that on average 173 stalls were discovered on the street in the streets of La Plata. The figure, however, leaves out the entire universe of the so-called fairs and saltines that are stored in parks and squares, so the number of clandestine jobs is much greater.
According to the CAC, this figure is 22.4% lower than in the same period of the previous year, but 8% more than the last measurement. In other words, street sales are growing again in the city. Although this situation can be attributed to various factors, for local trade references this new increase in street marketing is linked to a decrease in business activities.
According to the survey, the most affected areas under clandestine marketing are the train station, with 28.3% of total posts, followed by Avenue 7 and the 8th Street shopping center.
To that extent, they indicated that the item with a larger participation in the streets, avenues and pedestrians of the commercial advertising center was "clothing and footwear, which represented 43.1% of the observed sections." For its part, optics, photography , timepieces and jewelry in second place, with 21.8% of the total, was indicated.
In the autonomous city of Buenos Aires, in the month of July, 509 illegal street sales were discovered. This meant a decrease of 28.3% compared to the July 2017 measurement and an increase of 21.5% compared to June 2018. "The annualized decrease was related to the reduction of illegal sales in the Pueyrredón lanes, Avellaneda and Liniers zone, "they said.

In the meantime they went into the municipality this week with the preparations of a house in the neighborhood of 80 and 134, which they intend to move to street vendors who offer their products in the center of La Plata. It is a two-hectare property in which it is reported that there is room for 800 positions.
Community sources said that the measure is aimed at "reorganization of public space" and emphasized that they maintain a "permanent dialogue with street shoppers" who have to convince them to move to the new space.
To promote the movement, the municipal councilors must send an ordinance project to the local Deliberative Council. The manteros who accept to move have to register, have a social monotributo and validate the origin of the merchandise that they offer for sale.
