Because change is always inevitable
The COVID-19 pandemic has made a big impact on the whole world, as we adapt to the “new normal”. One of those that will be heavily affected are those who manage physical stores–with the “new normal”, businesses would need to digitize their workflow quickly to stop the bleeding from losses due to lack of sales and foot traffic from their physical shops.
With no definite timeline as to when things will go back to normal, resellers like Shoe Game Manila are working double-time to keep themselves afloat while everyone is following social distancing guidelines.
Recently, Shoe Game Manila relaunched its online store with a new look and a detailed preview of their current inventory, which includes toys, streetwear, and sneakers. As part of their relaunch, Shoe Game Manila is offering free delivery for orders within Metro Manila, along with COD and Paypal payment options.
With the transition to eCommerce, owner Ronnie de Vera made sure that everything is smooth-sailing–from the selection of items in their eCommerce shop to the delivery of the items to their customers.
“[The] website will be easier for our clients to shop and easier for us to update our inventory as well,” de Vera said.
Shoe Game Manila’s shift to eCommerce should help them make for their loss in daily sales, which is at least 80% since the community quarantine started. “We gotta find efficient ways on selling and shipping especially for our incoming stocks,” de Vera said.
With the adjustments Shoe Game Manila has made, de Vera emphasized that those selling sneakers, streetwear, and toys can survive by being active on social media, as it is easier to stay connected to current clients and find new clients. As for inventory, de Vera is cautious in updating his store’s inventory, as there’s no guarantee yet when we can live our lives normally.
“Hopefully, [the] sneaker, art, & toys industries will survive this crisis,” de Vera adds.
