Nukkad Shops – Get groceries delivered from the shop around the corner8 years ago Shalini B
Nukkad is a hindi word, which means round the corner in English. How often have you found yourself too lazy to even walk till the corner of the lane to get some groceries or household items that you require?
In India, every lane has one or two small general stores that have all basic home needs. Nukkad Shops – a Hyderabad based startup app that helps people access their neighbourhood shops through a mobile app, browse through the inventory, order and get goods delivered in 30 minutes.
Numbers reveal that Hyderabad and Nukkad Shops is experiencing an average delivery time of 35 minutes. This makes the startup app the fastest grocery delivery experience in the market today. Nukkad Shops also delivers to consumers options like fresh vegetables which are not available elsewhere. The comfort of buying from a trusted neighbourhood grocer is irreplaceable, especially when it comes to quality, freshness and returns.
“With the growth of mobile devices in all segments of the population, we see that mobile shopping is on the rise. This has given rise to a lot of online commerce entities proliferating. Today we see that a lot of e-commerce and groceries apps have sprung up. Fueled with vast VC money, these shops are offering huge discounts and luring the shopper away from offline to online. This has really disrupted the local retail activity. We see that most shops that were selling mobile phones are now going out of business as people prefer to buy discounted phones online. The neighbourhood grocery store that withstood the onslaught of the large format retail stores earlier is now being threatened by the rise of umpteen mobile grocery options. Customers require the convenience of ordering from home and paying electronically, and they’re lapping up the new offerings” quotes the founder, Vivek Shukla.
Continuing the birth story along with the success, the founder says, “This new flurry of activity is hitting the long established mom and pop stores that dot your neighbourhood, and that you always use to get your monthly groceries from. Over a period of time as the mobile grocery apps become more and more powerful, your local grocery options will decrease at an aggressive pace. Pretty soon, neighbourhood grocery shops will become an anachronism like STD booths and Internet cafes. So the next time you want to get some milk to make tea for guests, or do a quick grocery run to get diapers for your crying baby, it means, you will just need to order online and wait for the evening to get them. This is where Nukkad Shops steps in. It provides the hi-tech weaponry for your low tech neighbourhood mom and pop retailers to fight back against the well-funded megaliths that the mobile grocery giants are becoming. Nukkad Shops is an app that is available for all consumers to download and order from their neighbourhood grocery shops.”
These are the benefits customers get from this app. But if a retailer chooses to tie up the app and feature his shop on the go, the app provides them the opportunity to digitize their entire inventory and make it accessible for all their regular customers. Further it allows the retailer to create specialized offers as well as enable loyalty programs. So it’s pretty much a full-fledged CRM system for the small retailer.
This amazing idea is the brain child of Vivek Shukla and Lipok Imsong of PurpleTalk. Today Nukkad shops is currently operational in over 100 stores across Hitech city, Gachibowli, Chandanagar, Madinaguda, Kondapur, Kukatpally, and Uppal. The app is available on both the Google play store and the Apple App store and has 5 star ratings from its users.
If you wish to get listed on this app as a retailer, the process is quite simple. Simply register yourself using the “get listed” option on Nukkad Shops’s official website. The team of the app will get in touch with you to take it forward as soon as they receive your registrations.
The Nukkad Shops team envisions a top rated local retail market place for India by creating a thriving local retail eco system. All the monetization options that it sees allow the retailer to keep all the revenue from sales, and the product envisages innovative monetization metrics not currently in practice.
So, from now on, don’t fret at the thought of walking till the corner of your lane to get groceries and houselhold needs. Just simply download this wonderful helper, Nukkad Shops, order all that you need and get them delivered within 30 minutes.
