LINE MAN MART: A quick commerce shop where anything can be sold.
- In 2021, LINE MAN penetrates the Quick Commerce market with LINE MAN MART, a service where customers can order goods from supermarkets, convenient stores, retailers and fresh markets with 30-minute quick delivery to the doorstep. This very well responds to the demand of Thai consumers during the Covid-19 pandemic where people are willing to pay more for convenience and lower infection risks. LINE MAN MART also serves as a new channel for retailers to reach customers.
- Hottest year-end items (October to November 2021) with the highest growth include "shabu-style pork belly" (หมูสามชั้นชาบู), "jasmine garlands" (พวงมาลัยดอกมะลิ) and "cat food" (อาหารแมว). This reflects Thai's behaviours where they tend to have more activities at home, be they having a shabu hot pot with family members, praying at home as well as keeping cats as pets. Quick and instant delivery service is available at fingertips in a way traditional e-commerce is not capable of.
- Most-searched items are "fruit and vegetable" (ผักผลไม้) and "drinking water" (น้ำดื่ม). Also "krathong" (กระทง) is most searched during the Loy Krathong festival.
- "Fresh food shops (fresh markets and vendors)" (ร้านของสด (ตลาดสดและร้านแผงรวมของสด)) see the highest sales volume on LINE MAN MART in response to the cooking-at-home trend and instant delivery demands.
- Shop categories with the highest openings are "dried and processed foods" (ร้านอาหารแห้งและอาหารแปรรูป), "health foods and supplies" (ร้านอาหารเพื่อสุขภาพ) and "grocery shops" (ร้านขายของชำ).
Joining marketing campaigns to have fun on promotions throughout the year!
