Indore (MP): Moving away from electronic goods, clothes and groceries that one can shop online, a local vendor has gone one step ahead by providing people, specially women the facility to order vegetables and fruits of their choice with just a click of a mouse.
Possibly the first store of its kind in Madhya Pradesh, subzistore indoreveg.Com shop offers vegetables online.
"When a large number of goods were being sold online, why not vegetables," asks vendor Omprakash Bhatt.
"Today, many companies are doing trade worth crores through online medium. If they can do so.. They why can't the traditional vegetable market can foray into this internet revolution," he asked.
However, he informed that a similar online organic vegetable store is already working in Mumbai.
Four men have been employed by Bhatt to deliver vegetables and fruits to customers at home from 7 AM to 12 PM and from 4 PM to 8 PM after collecting orders online. Now spices are also available with this facility.
The customer has to register himself on the website after which they are alloted a username and password for login. After delivery of vegetables/fruits, store employees collect cash on delivery from the residence itself.
Bhatt said the facility is getting a good response.
A first time customer, Abhinandan Singh said that purchasing fresh vegetables/fruits and its home-delivery was a pleasant surprise for his wife and both of them have decided to stick to this medium in future too.
