Frequently asked Questions
Q: What is MrDuka.com all about ?
A: MrDuka is a o2o ( online to offline ) shopping platform in Kenya that enables people to find new products for sale in Kenya from official brands, retailers, shops and outlets. Importantly, we only display new products from reputed shops & stores, thereby ensuring quality.
We leverage the internet to connect people to products they want to buy. Quite simply, this is a better way to shop. Going to a retail outlet once you know what they have in store ( and at what price), is always better than visiting a number of stores in different locations while not knowing what the prices are or if what you are looking for is even in available. The hassles of traffic, parking and wasted time mean that store hopping is no longer the smart way to shop.
