Kuwaiti people nowadays tend to prefer online shopping over regular shopping- just like most people around the world. Online shopping used to be untrustworthy, in the middle east in general, due to many reasons; one of which is the inaccurate street names and addresses. Currently, there’s a change for the better when it comes to the future of online shopping.
Shopping in Kuwait has long been connected to the country and its people. Online stores, and especially online clothing stores, are gradually advancing and making names for themselves. Some online shopping stores are even expanding, ignoring the limits of borders, and introducing themselves to other countries and audiences. Layla Collection is an example as it’s selling clothes online not just for Kuwaiti people, but for a wider audience to enjoy.
What also helped the boost of online shopping stores is the high level of internet and smart phone advancement in the golf area. People can now buy online with just a couple of touches and in no time. In addition, with the coronavirus pandemic, and with the whole world relying heavily on online shopping, the online shopping trend in Kuwait is also taking a rise. Online stores are generating revenue more than before and it’s expected to maintain an increase even when the pandemic is over.
Despite the success of online stores in Kuwait, malls and markets will remain to be key part of people’s lives in Kuwait and will maintain a certain level of significance. Yet, the real answer to the question of whether people will go back to regular shopping after the pandemic is over still awaits. It mostly depends on the consumers’ positive or negative experiences with online shopping. Overall, online stores are now integrated in the Kuwait, and there’s still a room for improvements.
