With a glass of juice in one hand and a click of a button with the other, Hyderabadis now a days find it more luxurious to sit in the comfort of their homes and shop online.
Online shopping is the latest trend that is catching up in the city with several such stores opening up in the past few months. “Customers are opting for online shopping of mobile phones, tablets and other gadgets too. We have about 15-20 customers in a month who place their orders online on our website,” Yashvitha Manager of Southdeal said.
Be it clothing and accessories or household items and confectionery, Hyderabadis are now spoilt for choice at these virtual portals. Some stores also customize their products according to the demands of the customers.
“I have a dozen karigars working for me and we design clothes as per the demand of the buyer. Apart from that we house our own designer collection, ” Sheshikanth, a fashion designer with an online store said.
Until recently, citizens were not really inclined towards online shopping for fear of deceit, but now the online stores are taking extra measures to ensure safe delivery and providing the exact piece that the buyer expects as seen on the website.
This proves to be a blessing to college students and working women with not much free time to visit stores. They have been identified as the primary client base of these stores. “The best part of these online stores is that they are open 24/7 and I can browse through them after I return from work”, Customer Noorali, a teacher at a Banjara hills said.
