Launched earlier this month, the initiative allows shoppers across Dubai to enjoy a live online shopping experience at their convenience.

Established in 1987, Telal has 32 outlets throughout the Middle East and its own footwear factory in Italy.

Director Hassan Thurabi said, “We noticed a 30 per cent dip in customer footfall during the pandemic due to lockdown restrictions and a reluctance from people to go outside for non-essential goods."

Needing to find a solution to the situation quickly, he said they invented the platform to support the new needs of customers and bring services to customers’ doorsteps at the click of a button.

Plans are currently in place to expand the brand to other emirates in the UAE as well.
