The Situation

Brick and mortar retail stores have been feeling the pinch of a reduction of sales in the recent past due to several reasons beyond their control. And to add to their misery, a pandemic grabbed hold of the world, killing off hopes of a recovery to this retail sector. The founder of V Mall was also a proud owner of a retail store, until he had to close down operations for reasons beyond his control.

In doing so, he swore to himself that he would start a retail revolution that will save this retail sector. He understood that there were several big players in the market that were slowly eating away at their market share, making it difficult for the survival of the brick and mortar retail sector. With a belief that it would take something special to be the saviour to the retail sector, the entrepreneur in him awoke, with the idea that complete collaboration of all stakeholders would be needed, to create a retail revolution, in order to claim back market share that was taken away.

This led to the birth of V Mall, a Virtual Mall, created for the brick and mortar retail sector to be able to showcase their stores virtually, to reclaim their sales via an online portal, and grow their businesses once again. This collaboration shall assist in starting a retail revolution, with stakeholders grouping together to be a force in the market, which otherwise would not be achievable individually. Together we shall march towards prosperity and success.

The Solution

We find ourselves with a lack of shopping options due to the pandemic that is gripping our world and affecting our everyday lives. Life as we knew it has ceased to exist, and we find ourselves trying to adapt to this New Normal.

Our leisurely trips to the mall have been minimised in order to curb the spread of Covid-19 and to keep ourselves safe from contracting the deadly disease. The stores that we were used to shopping at have become somewhat out of bounds. This situation has left many of us frustrated as we are unable to get what we want.

The founder of V Mall, a store owner himself, felt that there had to be something done to assist shoppers that were now stranded. This led to the creation of V Mall, a Virtual Mall, set up to alleviate the frustrations of customers to the mall setting. Our favourite stores have all faced losses during this difficult period, causing lots of them to close their doors forever. We don’t want to see this happening any further, and if this trend continues, we won’t be able to purchase our desired goods from our much-loved stores anymore.

So let’s try to assist our cherished stores by supporting them on V Mall, so that they don’t become extinct, leaving us with less choice.
