UAE-based online retailer of footwear and fashion products Namshi.com is expanding its operations to ship to consumers across the GCC and Egypt.
Namshi.com was launched in January this year to offer a wide range of international brands and styles, many of which are exclusive brands unavailable in regional retail stores. Most recently, the online store added Polo Ralph Lauren for kids, Boxfresh and Pelle Moda to its catalogue of fashion brands.
“We offer a diverse selection of brands from mainstream to designer brands that suit any type of personal style,” says Hosam Arab, co-founder of Namshi.com. “We currently offer shoe brands ranging from Sam Edelman to Puma as well as clothing lines such as House of Dereon (singer Beyonce Knowles’ line) and Motel Rocks. We also recently added a number of cosmetics lines to our website, giving our customers a one-stop shopping experience.”
“Our success thus far is a testament to the rise in popularity of online shopping in the Arab World,” says Louis Lebbos, another co-founder of Namshi. “We saw a great opportunity in the e-commerce space with Arabs and expats living in the Middle East becoming increasingly comfortable making online transactions. Now with both English and Arabic websites, our job at Namshi is to make it easy for customers to enjoy the benefits of online shopping by offering a wide selection of options with free shipping and returns.”
