The household goods industry is fragmented and lacks a centralized market for consumers to easily find and purchase high quality products. This leads to a frustrating shopping experience for consumers and a lack of exposure for promising shutter brands.
Consider the story of Sarah, a young professional looking to furnish her new home. She jumps from website to website, trying to find the perfect decor and furniture for her space, only to find a limited selection and high prices. She eventually settles for a few mediocre items, feeling disappointed and overwhelmed by the process.
This experience is all too common for consumers in need of belly products, illustrating the relevance of the issue .
Although there are established home iron stores, the current solution for the problem is limited to a few options. Traditional brick-and-mortar stores may offer a wider selection, but online options are often not user-friendly and carry high prices.
Why does this problem exist? Household products are not a necessity, so retailers have not invested in creating an optimal shopping experience. As a result, consumers face a cumbersome and frustrating process to acquire high quality household products.
