It’s 2017 and Kenyans have now gotten pretty comfortable with online shopping.
In the past, there were genuine concerns about internet conmen, but now the scene is changing with some really trustworthy online retailers setting up.
We are still in the early stages of adopting this new way of shopping, and as it stands, most Kenyans are only comfortable buying certain items like clothes, power banks and mobile phones.
However, the range of products is huge, and the one that is currently picking up pace is liquor.
If we were to be honest with ourselves, we spend more money on liquor than we probably should. Men especially do not generally buy clothes or shoes spontaneously, but will gladly randomly pop into the local for ‘one or two’.
The more cautious ones have set days for getting wasted, maybe Friday or Saturday or both. Most do this in the house rather than go out.
But we’re not always in the mood to get out and buy drinks. Maybe that, or your local seller thinks you are all millionaires and prices them as such.
It’s frustrating for all of us. Even the rich don’t remain rich by buying needlessly expensive things.
Someone has heard your cries and is promising to have your liquor delivered in 2 hours max.
Citimarket.com has already established itself as one of the major players in the online shopping scene. Despite being a newcomer, thousands of Kenyans can already attest to its efficiency and reliability.
Next time you are having a party, and the liquor dries up unexpectedly, Citimarket.com got your back. Just visit their liquor section, select your drink of choice and make payment via Mpesa (I’m sure your friends can help you up here. They’re most generous when wasted).
Sometimes in the bash there might be that guy who doesn’t touch alcohol for this or that reason. Or another one who drinks like a fish but never contributes much. If either of these is missing, there must be that one who talks like a truck driver after only 2 shots.
Once you make your order, station one of these guys by the window to be on the lookout for a Citimarket rider. In 2 hours or less, your liquor will arrive.
And don’t switch off your phone… I know the devil sometimes gets into drunk people’s heads.
Anyway, give them a try. You’ll save cash, time and even look cool in the process.
