Whether you are completing your monthly shopping list or buying ingredients for your stuffed chicken parmesan recipe, Kadairuncit.com allows users the convenience of shopping from home, eliminating the need to queue up or navigate the aisles.
The local online store that was launched in 2017 aimed to provide a platform where consumers can seamlessly purchase items ranging from fresh produce, beverages, snacks and rice; and have them delivered right to their doorsteps.
Head of Marketing Siti Rafidah Hj Duraim in an interview with The Bruneian said that the decision to come up with the initiative was to eliminate the hassle of shopping.
“The idea for Kadairuncit.com is actually based on our (collective) personal experience from the frustration of having to wait in line for the cashier to difficulty in finding the items we needed,” she shared.
The idea behind the website’s name came from the local quote “singgah dulu ke kadai” (drop by a store first) with a brand name that is closer to home hence, “kadai runcit” which means grocery store.
Since its debut, the online store has gained a growing number of 300 registered users since it was first introduced.
“When we first started, it was slow but overtime people became more adapting and are starting to trust shopping online,” she added.
According to Rafidah, the company has observed that due to the increasing number of online sellers in 2018, consumers are slowly shifting towards online shopping platforms.
On the side, vendors would also benefit from the Kadairuncit.com as they are able to accept card payments at a low cost with no registration and monthly fees.
