What are your plans for next 3 years?
See spending on grocery and other daily needs are the largest and most consistent share of wallet for every wallet in the country. Currently, it is still out of the ambit of online shopping and, therefore, represents a huge opportunity which we are catering right now and aim at to get a large market share. Grocery e-tailing is challenging right now, but it also has the great advantage of a high percentage of repeat customers with increasing orders. All you need to do is impress a customer with the first 3 orders. Once a customer is satisfied, you can have one more regular in your clientele. Therefore, with our motto of 100% customer satisfaction we see ourselves as a trusted brand name in e tailing in near future.
