Homeplus virtual subway store in South Korea

Got this from a friend’s FB post. Homeplus is one of the three top supermarkets in Korea, the others are E-mart and Lotte Mart. Our favorite has always been E-mart, and I’m going to post about shopping there later on ;p

Six weeks after giving birth, my husband had to go to China for three weeks. During that time, I became an “expert” in online shopping. I bought groceries from the internet – from bottled mineral water to fresh veggies ! Even now, I would sometimes shop while on the subway (using the free WiFi) and have my grocery delivered a few hours later. Very convenient, isn’t it?

Anyway, here’s a video of the virtual subway store of Homeplus in South Korea.

I just might try it when I see it ;p

    I really love and like the idea of virtual market. We can now shop using our phone. Time saver and hassle free.
