On the launch of the campaign, Suchi Mukherjee, CEO & Founder, LimeRoad says, “At LimeRoad, we are on a mission to create India’s most extensive delightful discovery platform. Our focus is lifestyle and a clear testament of delight lies in the fact that 80% of our users visit us on our mobile app 7-10 times per month. This we believe is a best in class metric. India is a treasure trove of fine skilled artists and ‘#ShopByCity’ is our endeavour to help these gorgeous products to reach audiences across the country. In the true spirit of discovery, we want our users to discover local delights, speciality stores and hidden craftsmen of our country from the comfort of their homes. We at LimeRoad take pride in being the first in our industry to extend support to the larger national interest campaign.”
