ShopClues rises to the occasion; announces sale of daily home necessities on its platform starting at INR 49
New Delhi: March 30, 2020 – In the wake of the 21-day lockdown to effectively deal with the coronavirus pandemic, ShopClues, India’s leading e-commerce platform with a vast rural and semi-urban reach, has said that its online portal will now be enabled to make available food, medicines and medical equipment to its customers located across the country.
ShopClues will, with immediate effect, use its e-commerce platform to make available essentials such as sanitizers, masks, packaged foods, groceries medicines and personal hygiene products.
“In this time of need, we want to use our platform that has a vast reach across Tier II/III/IV cities of India to be able to buy these essential items from our portal. Further to the Prime minister’s assurance that essentials will continue to be available during these difficult times, we want people to stop panicking and have access to these items. Please stay indoors. Stay safe and let us reach you,” said Sanjay Sethi, CEO ShopClues.
With the supply chain being thrown off track as a result of the lockdown and a shutdown of transport system and bazaars, there was panic buying and hoarding among people with regard to their daily, essential needs.
ShopClues is a leading online marketplace that caters to the ‘Real India’ — buyers and sellers in Tier II/III/IV cities and beyond. Founded in 2011 with a team of just five members, the Gurugram headquartered e-commerce company today works with more than 350 employees and 700,000+ merchants that service over 60 million lifetime unique customers.
