Launched last year September, Nigeria’s LagMarket.com in February unveilled its Cake Shop to add to its growing inventory of products such as Baby Products, Beverages, Drinks, Foods, Frozen foods, Health and beauty, household items, wholesale among others.
“We delivered our first order in September 2013 and have since grown to serve our customers. Customers can buy on our website via bank transfers or paying when items are delivered,” the founders say on the site. Lagmarket.com takes on Gloo, Supermart and a profileration of tens of other online retailers launching in Nigeria.
Though LagMarket calls itself a convenient shopping point online for food, groceries and more, it will have to get itself on steroids to make an impact or receive some 500 orders a day, the market is there with all the traffic jams and the growing internet population in Lagos.
