Recently, India’s first social shopping platform for women LimeRoad.com was launched. This unique platform provides users with international and national mega brands in their flagship form. The unique shopping experience allows users to shop-by-city, shop-by-brand, or shop-by-flagship store, where they can browse and connect with shops, brands and retailers of their choice. The eye-candy magazine format lets users effortlessly flip the pages. The proprietary scrapbook not only enables users to organize, share and shop all the beautiful things they find on LimeRoad.com, it also lets them flip through and get inspired by what others have discovered.
Commenting on the launch, Suchi Mukherjee Founder & CEO of LimeRoad.com said, “We are on a journey to build the most extensive and engaging lifestyle platform ever. Our sole objective is to make the shopping experience on LimeRoad so delightful, that we become the online destination for women to find gorgeous yet affordable products. We have gone out and built strong partnerships with a really rich selection of brands. With categories like apparel, accessories, home and food, LimeRoad.com is designed to be a woman’s “me time” online. We’re launching with many brands, nearly half of which are exclusively available with us.”
