CapitaLand and Shopee to teach e-commerce strategies to retailers in six malls in Singapore
Singapore-based real estate group CapitaLand, and e-commerce platform Shopee have come together to create an omnichannel experience for consumers, starting with the upcoming 11.11 sales.
The two companies will also work to transform outlet mall IMM to become a virtual shopping mall.
This will be trialled at six of CapitaLand’s malls in Singapore where retailers like Skin Inc, Zaffron Kitchen and Linen Gallery will be taught how to diversify and build retail strategies as the retail sector recovers from the Covid-19 pandemic.
The two companies will also work to transform outlet mall IMM to become a virtual shopping mall and provide retailers there with more online marketing opportunities.
“As part of CapitaLand’s commitment to help our retailers adapt to the new normal, we are focused on creating a holistic retail ecosystem integrating offline-and-online sales channels. In addition to operating our twin digital platforms eCapitaMall and Capita3Eats, we are pleased to join forces with Shopee to offer our retailers more opportunities to engage with their customers digitally, while driving footfall to their physical stores through online marketing,” said Chris Chong, the managing director for retail at CapitaLand Singapore.
“By combining expertise and sharing resources with Shopee, we are confident of creating a mutually beneficial retail ecosystem that drives value creation for retailers and delivers differentiated customer experiences for shoppers.”
