Japanese apparel retailer Uniqlo will now offer home deliveries in India, a year after it opened stores here, as COVID-led restrictions stoke consumer interest in shopping online for the brand.
With this service, Uniqlo hopes to provide more customers with iconic items like Heattech nd Fleece jacket along with essential items like AIRism through our website to support their lives in this new normal. We will be delivering to people in more than 17,000 pin codes across the country. The company has built the portal -- online.uniqlo.in -- as an “interim solution".
While the company is actively engaged in building a robust e-commerce solution, given the current challenging situation, this interim solution is to provide customers a way to easily access and experience the brand.
Uniqlo has four stores in Delhi-NCR, with another scheduled to open in Noida later this year. However, covid-led restrictions have restricted footfall at stores for most retailers, as shoppers avoid stepping out to buy goods, and instead, prefer shopping online.
