“Our goal is to transform the purchase process of all our consumers and this initiative points in that direction, since it allows us to offer them an omnichannel experience adapting to their needs,” stated Domingo Lama, general manager of Linio in Chile.
With this opening, the Chilean ecommerce group has followed the steps of other pure players such as Amazon, Aliexpress or Zalando, which have also opened physical stores in the past couple of months.
Since Falabella acquired Linio in 2018 for 138 million dollars, the digital platform has doubled its growth as reported by the Chilean company. Linio has set the goal of doubling its business this year after reaching a revenue of 135 million dollars in 2018.
