Co-founded in 2008 by Naomi Konditi-Kivuvani, who is also its Managing Director, My Strawberry Store retails home, office furnishings and accessories from Swedish Home Furnishings store, IKEA.
She said: “IKEA stores do not yet have an outlet in Africa, making The Strawberry Store the one-stop shop for unique and inexpensive quality furnishings in Kenya.
The co-founder and Managing Director expects the Online Store to be the premier and biggest online store selling IKEA home products and others from renowned International brands, for delivery in Kenya and East Africa.
According to Konditi-Kivuvani the store started off selling the products via an e-catalogue but went online in 2009 at www.mystrawberrystore.com, to enable customers buy products online and have them delivered to their door-step. My Strawberry Store allows a buyer to select, order and pay for their purchase online and have them delivered or picked. Buyers can also custom-order IKEA products not listed on the site. At the moment, the store has house and office furnishing accessories, Babies and Kids fun stuff, Bathroom refreshing, Bedroom restoration, Kitchen and Dining and beauty products.
Naomi also adds that the store recently partnered with Eyes Lips Face Cosmetics Ltd to supply high-quality, low-priced range of cosmetics from USA. It also partnered with Shuka Duka and RoomMates USA to offer high quality phenomenal products.
The store delivers in Nairobi and across the country using reputable courier firms. Goods are delivered on the next business day if goods are available in stock. Payments are through M-PESA, PayPal, VISA, MasterCard and cash on delivery. Each delivery costs Kshs 200/- per order within Nairobi and 450/=per order to other towns within Kenya.
