Hana Goes Local: The Online Shopping Platform at the Forefront of Fashion
From a viral hashtag on social media to a digital platform that promotes local products, Hana Goes Local is definitely on the verge of something big! It all started two years ago when Fashion and Lifestyle Blogger Hana El Awadi used the hashtag #hanagoeslocal to support Egyptian artisans and brands free of charge. Little did she know that this simple act could be the gate to a greater cause.
El Awadi joined forces with Dalia Shawki and Manal Aboudaoud, and together they brought the concept to life in the form of a website that gathers a wide selection of locally produced goods under one virtual roof. The online shopping website kickstarted with more than 80 brands with more than 1,000 products in store for customers.
To this day, the ‘Locals’ family is growing bigger and bigger catering to a more diverse community. From homeware to fashion, Hana Goes Local has it all in one place for you, and with only a few clicks, your orders can be delivered to your doorstep.
Brands don’t just get to benefit from increasing their sales as they add one more retail outlet to their list, but they also get their names and work out there. Hana Goes Local helps brands gain the kind of exposure they need. Not just that, but also gets their inspiring stories told.
Other than supporting local talents; after all, the whole thing revolves around showcasing these brands to the world, whether it’s a start-up or an established business, Hana Goes Local aims to offer shoppers a great experience. The website provides consumers with a hassle-free online shopping experience with the option to either pay on delivery or via credit card online.
