Being Columbus
Authored by: Sean  

Henry David Thoreau said, “… be a Columbus to whole new continents and worlds within you, opening new channels, not of trade, but of thought.” Oh how this statement applies to every business today! Let me explain….Just a while earlier, we had waxed eloquent about the fact that today’s online businesses need to be multilingual in order to reach customers and other players in its ecosystem. Another aspect of such ‘multiplicity’ is through the channels in which we reach out to everybody. So, we’re talking about handling multiple languages and multiple modes of delivery, if one can call it that.

DiscountShop.com has opened up channels and established its presence in various ways including Facebook (I wonder if anybody can live without it now!), Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and so on. You can explore all the channels on our website. So, if you want to order a watch, some jewelry, a pen or two or your favorite pair of sunglasses, you really do not have to travel all the way to a physical store for the same. Simply visit  DiscountShop.com and do your shopping at leisure.

While this may be our online or virtual shop, it is also important for an online business to have a physical network as well. Having a brick and mortar presence in some form or the other does go a long way! Certain brands have physical retail outlets and online shopping as well. For us, our physical presence consists of our global presence in countries such as USA, UK, Hong Kong and Japan. Our warehouses help us get your product to you in the most cost-effective manner and via the shortest route as well.

Global locations

 

It has been many years in the business for us and today we are able to serve customers in more than 40 countries. But don’t take our word for it, click the “Check out what’s shipping where today” on the ‘About Us’ page and you can complete a global tour in no time at all! Well, being Columbus or at least having a spirit like that magnificent man is perhaps slightly easier for online businesses today because we have some high-powered technology to help us in our trade!
