HONG KONG: HK's Bigsavewine.com just gets bigger
Bigsavewine offers around 300 varieties at discounted prices and allows its online consumers to buy wines individually rather than by the case.
The e-venture is part of a larger bigsave.com company owned by Hong Kong-listed Regent Pacific.
Managing director Al Chalabi told just-drinks.com that he is looking to move into Korea next. Taiwan and Thailand are also being considered.
The move into Korea will piggy-back on the Regent Pacific-owned Korea Online financial services portal. "People like the convenience of e-commerce as purchasing after you are familiar with a wine and know
what you want is a chore," says Al Chalabi.
"You generally do not get a good price until you buy a case but this way you can get a mix of wines and still at a good price."
