While most businesses sell their products in grocery stores, Homeplus decides to sell theirs in a virtual subway supermarket.
Homeplus is Korea’s second largest home goods store chain next to E-Mart, which leads in first place with more stores. To increase the amount of traffic to its stores, Homeplus decided to create a virtual store in the subway so people can easily shop without the need to travel to a store. Subway riders purchased goods by scanning the QR code, which automatically stores every item into the cart.
The selected goods are then packed and delivered right to the buyer’s doorsteps. As a result of this clever marketing technique, Homeplus became number one in the online market and if it keeps up the good job, they’ll eventually become number one overall.
