Founded in September 2018, Onlinekade.lk is one of the pioneering convenience stores in Sri Lanka that focuses on top-notch service for a unique 24-hour shopping experience, with a range of exclusive products typically unavailable in supermarkets, such as artisanal food produce, confectioneries, and luxury chocolates. The shelves of Onlinekade.lk are filled with a rainbow of choices, of which some are exclusive to the store. Imported products are directly sourced from ethical and sustainable brands trusted around the globe, from the US, the UK, Europe, Australia, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and Malaysia.
Onlinekade.lk is a family-run business by five determined individuals, with the aim of providing a one-stop shopping experience with both classics and speciality products, while promising top-notch service and superior quality. The brand recently expanded to Dubai, opening its first international store at the heart of Dubai at the Jumeirah Garden City, Al Satwa.
The expansion marks the company’s first step into the international market to support its worldwide growth. As part of this plan, the company has entered into an exclusive partnership with the DASA Group UK to improve its distribution channels and strengthen its supply chain with large distribution networks.
Onlinekade.lk was initiated as an e-commerce website and has now branched into three physical convenience stores, with one located in the busy neighbourhood of Rajagiriya and another in Bambalapitiya, in addition to its latest outlet in Dubai. Going beyond the traditional convenience store offering, Onlinekade.lk sources premium and high-end products while also supporting small local brands. The Dubai store is well stocked with popular Sri Lankan products and sought-after local delicacies, as Onlinekade.lk hopes to use its international store as a platform to showcase local products to an international clientele.
Part of the shopping experience at Onlinekade.lk comes from its Instagram-perfect decorations with several photo-worthy areas where customers can hang out – another way it stands out from the typical store. Adding to this, the Dubai store has a ramen counter for a quick grab-and-go or sit-down meal, as well as charging facilities and workstations to add to the shopping experience.
Onlinekade.lk Co-Founder Rahil Atheeq stated: “We created an environment that connects with our consumers and fosters happiness with over-the-top displays and a fun vibe. Onlinekade.lk puts the confectionery category and local products on full display by combining the industry’s beloved products with a unique and innovative in-person retail experience, and enhancing the magic related to shoppers’ favourite treats.”
Furthermore, Onlinekade.lk’s privileged cardholders can enjoy special discounts at the Dubai outlet. Identifying the consumer demand for a convenient 24-hour shopping experience, all three locations operate 24/7. Orders can be placed via the website www.Onlinekade.lk.lk or the brand’s mobile application, while its products can be accessed through PickMe or UberEats. For more information, the brand could also be reached via Whatsapp or normal call/message on 074 199 2993 / 074 199 2992. The brand also provides islandwide doorstep delivery within Sri Lanka.
