With Sri Lanka having to experience a mobile penetration that’s close to the entire population of the country coupled with the increasing growth in internet access via handsets and smartphones, Keells Super brings mobile shopping for the first time in its industry, adding greater ease and convenience to its shoppers.
The launch of the mobile commerce site comes as an extension after its immense success of its pioneering e-commerce website www.keellssuper.com in 2002 which has enjoyed the privilege of being the first and only online supermarket in the country to date.
Registering over 25,000 customers as of today, Keells Super is able to provide a continuous and consistent service to its shoppers both at home and abroad, enabling Sri Lankans living overseas to send a variety of supermarket goods to their loved ones at home.
JayKay Marketing Services CEO Mr. Charitha Subasinghe, commenting on this, quoted the famous saying ‘‘You can forget your car keys nowadays, but not your mobile phone.’’
Appreciating the importance of the device on our daily lives, Mr. Subasinghe stated ‘‘We are delighted to announce that our customers can now use their mobile to shop their groceries, giving shoppers the complete experience by simply accessing m.keellssuper.com or keellssuper.mobi”
Households and offices can order their range of goods and have it delivered to their doorstep not only throughout Colombo and its suburbs but also through outlets located at Kurunegala, the misty hills of Kandy and down-south of Sri Lanka.
“As a company which is dedicated to serve their customers better through effective use of technology, we proudly announce you that we have extended our online presence by launching the first ever m-commerce enabled online super store in Sri Lanka, appreciating the importance of our presence in rapidly growing mobile Internet population in the country” added Nalaka Umagiliya, Vice President -John Keells Holdings and Head of Business Systems for Retail and Consumer Foods sectors.
