Houses Quikr Assured products such as Furniture, Electronics and Appliances
Chennai, August 26, 2019: Quikr, the platform behind leading transaction marketplaces built ontop of India’s largest classifieds business, today launched its first QuikrBazaar Store in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. To offer a seamless digital experience before, during, & after, along with the growing demand seen on the platform, Quikr is offering a touch-and-feel experience to its consumers offline as well. The first eight stores are already operational in Erode – Tamil Nadu, Telangana, and Karnataka. By the end of this year, QuikrBazaar plans to have 25 such stores across India to provide additional channel and increased accessibility for its consumers.
QuikrBazaar brings its Assured products in categories such as Furniture, Electronics, and Appliances in these Stores. All products in the Assured offering are checked for quality and come with a full warranty and replacement guarantee from Quikr. They are convenient while also easy on the pocket.
Talking about the development, Sarath Chandra Gudlavalleti, VP at QuikrBazaar said, “There is a huge demand for quality tested new, unboxed & refurbished products across India and some customers still prefer to ‘touch & feel’ the product before buying. With the launch of these QuikrBazaar Stores, we will be able to reach markets where customers don’t have access to these products and bridge the gap between aspirations & affordability in Tier I, II & III cities of India.”
It is interesting to note that buying and selling pre-owned products helps save the environment as well. A recent survey by Quikr says that 83% of consumers are aware of the environment-friendliness factor that comes with buying such products. In addition to this factor, of course, Quikr sees many consumers leaning towards pre-owned goods because of better pricing, shortening purchase cycles, easy availability, and the transactional experience offered by Quikr. These offline Stores will help in spreading awareness and encouraging the concept of re-using.
Currently, the QuikrBazaar Store in Chennai is located at Dhruv communication LLP, Medavakkam main road, near Near KP Hospital in Adambakkam. With Tamil actress, Alya Manasa, gracing the grand opening of QuikrBazaar Store, it garnered much attention of localities.
