The local shops of urban centers and towns were slow to wake up to the online marketplace revolution going on in the country. The first ones to fall were the electronic shops and the mobile stores. The cut throat competition between the top two ecommerce players and the steep discounts lead not only the city dwellers but also every net savvy guy in small towns and villages to try out these ecommerce portals.
Once the customers got a taste of what the online shopping experience feels like and matured as users they started checking out other items on the menu. From within utensils to medicines to toys and foods, everything became available at your fingertips. That, in addition to the shop discounts have put the final nail in the coffin for the local businesses.
Now, the business owners have two choices- Either they can move on from this business and present further loss of time and money, or they can move with the tide ad take competition to the opponent’s turf- Online. And local stores have an added advantage that these big players don’t or can’t afford at this time.
The Added Advantage:
The main attraction of shopping online is the ability to shop without any hassle, and having it delivered to your home without moving from the comforts of your couch. But there is a disadvantage to this- the deliveries take a longer time, sometimes days- sometimes weeks, while a shopping at a local store will get you similar item in 1- 2 hours. Shopping local also helps in easy replacement too.
What if the same day delivery and choices at your fingertips were available at the same time. And that exactly, is your added advantage, the local store owner’s advantage.
