Kenya: Tuskys Sets Up a Sh30m Online Mall With Same Day Delivery

19 December 2018

Retailer Tusker Mattresses has invested Sh30 million in setting up a virtual mall-Tusky Online Store and a suppliers' portal.

The group's chief executive Dan Githua said the cloud-based platform will enable customers shop for furniture, electronics, crockery, clothes, mobile accessories and home appliances among others in its 54 stores in Kenya and seven in Uganda.

The online store available on will also give suppliers real time supplier accounts that will facilitate prompt payments for deliveries.

"Alongside the existing army of more than 1,200 suppliers to Tuskys physical stores, the online portal will undertake a recruitment rally for an additional 1,000 online suppliers where we shall target enterprising youth currently engaging in online sales ventures on social media platforms," he said in a statement.

Tuskys Online store, he said, provides a payment option and same day delivery services within Nairobi with upcountry orders set for execution overnight.

Mr Githua said customers can also pay instalments for select products via Tuskys Lipia Pole Pole Layby solution, introduced in September 2017 that has raked in Sh500 million in sales.

The portal also allows customers to choose their shopping location across Kenya and Uganda with direct home deliveries planned for customers at no fee within Nairobi.
