Say hi to 2020. A year that has changed lives, altered schedules, and brought everyone to a steep realization that safety is not to be compromised at any point in our lives. At a time when the world needs to stay safe, save more money and time, we need to focus on being STRONGER TOGETHER.
A few months ago, the whole world went into lockdown. Shops closed, curfews were imposed and life generally was at a standstill. It has been unbearable as many people have to deal with ‘’ where’’ and ‘’how’’ to get products and services at affordable prices delivered to them in a safe manner. Regular life routines have been greatly affected and there is a general fear that the world will never be the same again.
However, in the midst of all the confusion and uncertainty, there is a glimmer of hope. A hope that is derived from episodes from the dark period when the world had no one to turn to. How did we all survive this? We prayed we hoped, we followed rules and we became innovative.
Groceries, clothing, electronics, household items, and a few other products were in high demand. Buyers always had the headache of where to get these items and how they will receive these items without being exposed to the risk of contracting the disease.
Suddenly, a bright light shone through. E-commerce!
Buying everything online and getting it delivered to your doorstep by a team of professional delivery agents who observe all safety protocols has been the best thing ever. We have all come to the realization that, there is a great and affordable way to shop without risking your life.
