Market2U is set to launch a live market where buyers will have access to sellers for all kinds of products ranging from household materials and tools to fast-moving consumable goods, fashion and accessories, food items, and a whole lot of other goods with direct delivery to buyers’ doorstep.
The live show is fixed to debut and air every Wednesday by 7: pm West African time. It will stream live on Facebook: @market2Ulive, Twitter: @market2Ulive, Instagram: @market2uliveng, and on YouTube via Market2U Nigeria.
Market2U will air online, to solve the daily needs of users who will take advantage of the opportunity to make their buying decisions virtually to avoid the boisterous contacts within open markets. It will help to ensure and achieve the social distance order of the Federal and state government by encouraging people to stay at home, stay safe, and still get all their purchase needs met.
It will feature major brands in Nigeria ranging from fast-moving consumable goods (FMCGs) to electronics, smartphones, groceries, cosmetics, foodstuffs such as raw meat, and every other product at good deals. Brand owners and sellers alike, can showcase products and reach their customers via Market2U platform and community.
Market2U will offer direct prices from producers and manufacturers without extra costs to allow buyers to make buying decisions and place orders for their household and personal care products.
According to the Managing Director of Streams Limited, Mr. Rotimi Bankole, “the project will be one of the biggest platforms where buyers can get the best deals and still stay safe during this pandemic coronavirus era”.
He added that “The initiative is birth to ensure adequate social distancing for people who are faced with shopping challenges during this time and also to ensure adequate social distancing by encouraging them to truly stay at home during this COVID-19 period. Market2U is, therefore, the new normal for both brands and customers”
Samuel Odusami, Group Head Strategy & Research, SBI Group also noted that “This is a platform to further add value to our clients, partners and more importantly the people of Nigeria at home and abroad. We understand the need to continue to keep safe by practicing social distancing, however, because life must continue, we must re-invent marketing and sales channels to ensure we are not only healthy but innovative and breaking new grounds. Market2U is poised to be one of the most innovative means to get this done, now and aftermath of COVID-19”.
Recall that community transmission of the pandemic COVID-19 is on the daily increase in the country, hence, the need for people to deliberately avoid major public places as much as possible. Market2U will be the best option during a time like this.
