Namshi doesn’t waste any time when it comes to Qatar

Qataris, get your credit cards ready!

Namshi, the UAE-based fashion portal announced it’s expanding its services to Qatar.

Now that a new “market” is open right next to its HQ, it only makes sense for Namshi to quickly establish itself as *the* fashion e-commerce platform of choice to online shoppers living in Qatar.

Accelerated by COVID-19, ofcourse, Namshi said it saw a 50% rise in business and a 33% growth in the number of new customers since the beginning of the pandemic.

Emaar Properties is the real winner in this move, though. For those who don’t know, Namshi was bought by Emaar Malls, a subsidiary of Emaar Properties, back in 2017.

why it matters
Now that the relationships amongst the Gulf Cooperation Council countries have been normalized, we can expect to see other businesses (across various industries) expand between the territories to seize commercial opportunities.
