Tesco - Home Plus Subway Virtual Store - Shopping the Online Way

I think this is a great idea for shopping online and having our groceries delivered to our doorstep without having to trouble ourselves driving to the supermarket. 

Facing problems in looking for a parking space. Having to choose squeaky and rickety shopping carts. 

Having to lug all those groceries back home.

Scanning the barcode of any of the groceries we desire, paying for it through online payment systems or maybe deduct the costs through our debit cards would save a lot of trouble and hassles.

Would our local hypermarts rise up to the occasion and provide us with such an excellent service?

I don't know. One thing though is the standard of delivering only quality goods that have not expired, gone stale or damaged.

Knowing the local Malaysian Tidak Apa Attitude, I have my doubts but its nice to be able to dream that such a service might catch up here in Bolehland?

Very good idea for those who have smart phone.Advertisment boleh dipamirkan di mana2 shj, malah kalau keluar dlm web site pun ok.

Di Malaysia Tesco dah banyak ada.SAYA dapat tahu Sime Darby ada share dalam Tesco Msia.Kekurang ada lah penyertaan orang melayu dlm hypermarket industry kerana Sme DARBY BELONGS to PNB. They shud initiate the move first before other competitors start the move.Besides, we have enough users of smart phone that can generate the market.

Sebab itu saya tulis tentang usaha yang baik ini. Jika pengurusan kualiti unit pemasaran supermarket dapat memastikan akan mutu dan keadaan barangan yang dihantar kepada pelanggan, kaedah ini mungkin berjaya!

Sebaliknya jika hanya sekadar ' indah khabar dari rupa' tak lama le tu.

Soalnya apakah pengusaha supermarket dan hypermarket didalam negara kita mahu dan mampu menaikkan mutu perkhidmatan mereka setaraf atau melebihi pihak Tesco Korea?

Insya Allah boleh. Hypermarkets are international conglomerates. They sure dont want to jeopardize their image by sending inferior goods.
Kalau kita tengok htis kind of deliveries dah establish lama di negara kita - courier, food ( McD).Even restoran kat rumah saya pun dah offer delivery to door step ( of course with the right terms and conditions).I dont know why Tesco kick off late in this country.If I am a competitor ( Jusco or Carrefour), I would grab this idea and start action plan.Each plan may take months before actual implementation.This is business innovative.
I tell you, sekali satu hypermarket mula, the others will follow suit.Kalau tengok jam kat traffic dah memang makin teruk dari sehari ke sehari. THis is one of the solution to diffuse the problem.In this global and wireless age, people have to come out with fancy ideas ( though funny and odd in the beginning). Who knows you can get hair cutting and fresh roti canani and teh tarik at your door step!At the moment I see many mamak restorans displaying advertisements via the flat screens tv besides wireless service.
Mamak tak ambil MBA pun pikir marketing, Tuan! Restoran melayu belum lagi mula..

Supar Yop, you should go to Mydin Hypersupermarket and give them thumbs up for the efforts they have been giving to support local products and industries. South Korea is the fastest broadband in the world right now and these speed is needed if u want to involved in mobile wireless shopping online. Nowadays most of the stuffs like Plasma TV, computer peripheral even for my DSLR stuffs I bought using local online website. But for hypersupermarket if u need huge logistic distribution including vendors, drivers, vehicles and etc.This can be a reality in Malaysia if we have the right "ATTITUDE" becoz u knowlah how Malaysian's way of thinking.
