Good news, Honestbee users! Aeon’s groceries can now be delivered to you with Honestbee! The two parties signed a Memorandum of Understanding on Wednesday, Jan 24, following customer’s demand and to accommodate the ever-growing online shopping trend.
Aeon Co. (M) Bhd’s managing director, Shinobu Washizawa said that they noticed the trend for online shopping was growing, and that there was a strong sense of customer loyalty in the digital realm.
“Owing to decades of support from our customers, we have established a nationwide presence. We believe our strength lies not only in the wide-range of products and services, but also in the customers’ trust in our reputable brand,” he said at the MoU signing.
“In order to enhance the value for our customers by moving towards an omni-channel retailer, we want to combine our strengths with Honestbee’s expertise to digitalise our customer’s shopping experience.”
Honestbee Malaysia’s Country General Manager, Marianne Chuo, said shopping has changed over the last decade, with the online shopping trend developed because of its convenience in daily life.
