Krrb is turning local strangers into friendly neighbors, its about seeing what can you buy that is right next door, and not getting a billion anonymous results of things you can buy from Brazil. When listings are fewer and nearby, it creates a cozy environment that helps neighbors get to know neighbors and gives them first dibs on local treasures. Local commerce also means less static and fewer scams. But it’s not only about safety, simplicity and investing in your local community, you get to actually see the item you’re buying and can hear first hand the back story, which adds a layer of richness to the transaction. It also saves time, money and the hassle of packing, shipping and returns.
