No matter how BIG the large format grocery chains get in Mumbai, or how many online grocery shopping options we have, the customers’ bond with the local store can’t be severed. In this post, I am happy to tell you all about eBZaar.com. This is an app to buy groceries online. It’s set up well in Mumbai and already serving areas like Goregaon, Malad and Oshiwara.
That kirana store in the lane is what you’re most attracted to. You can huddle around the cash counter because this is “my store”. This is where you’d rather you’re your daily and monthly shopping whetted. But if only you could just find parking right outside or not have to worry about braving the rain. If only all convenience stores that are in our neighbourhood could be bundled into a single app.
