Dr. Olumide Olusanya, CEO, Gloo.ng just told us that the online supermarket, Gloo.ng, will be relocating in 2 weeks to a newly secured 20,000sqft Customer Fulfillment Center (CFC) from its present 5,000sqft CFC.
Set to take place on 3rd to 5th January 2014, the relocation has been necessitated by the growth the firm has experienced.
Formerly known as BuyCommonThings, Gloo.ng hit one year in October 2013 and says its on course to be the country’s biggest online supermarket. The new CFC is just another step towards its goal and shows the commitment its founders have on achieving it.
The firm was founded by Dr. Olumide Adedolapo Olusanya, who quit medicine to start Gloo.ng last year. Olusanya earlier told TechMoran that the firm would launch offline pick-up points-kind of physical stores across the country to reach many buyers with Same-Day Delivery services.
Gloo, however is not without competition as firms like Konga.com and Jumia, are also spearing their wings in the country and also launching massive centres to serve clients. At the end of the day, its buyers who gain.
