Mr. Price`s shopping solution.
The beauty about online shopping, that’s reliable, is that it means instant fashionable gratification. For those of us who love to shop, and I know that there are many of us who do, there is nothing more upsetting than seeing an item that you covet, only to face one of the following scenarios: out of stock or not available in your size. It’s happened to me on several occasions, and this is part of the reason why I started frequenting online stores. When I heard about Mr. Price’s online venture (mrp.co.za) I was most intrigued, mostly because of its amazing Project Limited Edition ranges. These capsule collections are limited and only available in 47 stores, and often are sold out by the time I get to the Sandton City store.
Having heard it from the source, I knew it was in the making, but when the invitation reached my inbox I was like a kid in a candy store.
In order to experience the budget and fashion savvy e-commerce store I was treated to a day of sun, sea (the view at least) and shopping (using a pink covered iPad was the perfect touch) in Durban. Shopping central, aka Mr. Price’s headquarters, was buzzing with people and fashionable items (naturally). And this was the first time that outsiders got to test the e-commerce store.
The thing about fast fashion is that it needs to be available, on trend and affordable. Now, with mrp.co.za fast fashion is all of that at the touch of a few buttons – anytime – day and night, no matter where you are in and around South Africa. The site is easy to navigate. Your shopping options are vast, with almost 18 000 items available online for women, men and children. Fashion choices can be based on trend, brand, colour or size. Showcasing how to accessorise the look, from head-to-toe (literally), it is shopping made easy with a smile.
Once you’ve spotted the piece/s that you like, and narrowed down the colour and size, click on the item and add it to your virtual shopping bag (which you can review, add or delete items until you are 100% happy with your final selection). Choose the delivery address that best suits you (home, work or the nearest Mr. Price store) and your method of payment (six options, including COD if it’s a store collection, EFT or gift vouchers, and don’t forget to factor in your R35 for the parcel delivery over and above the items that you've selected). With a 30-day return policy (read the return policy form that’s included in your parcel, it’s that easy), this is convenient shopping at its best.
Whether you are shopping from your PC, mobile phone or tablet, Mr. Price’s fashion policy is non-stop shopping, 24/7. In less than 24 hours, a beautifully packaged parcel reached my desk. Brimming with key spring pieces (new-season shopping is now well under way), it brightened up a cold winter’s morning… Thank you, mrp.co.za; I am already editing my next online purchase!
