“We are offering vendors a big discount on stall registration if they in turn give massive discounts on their items,” she added.

Already, online stores like 2nu Kollexion and Maridadi online have signed up for the market.

“Oriflame and Kiko Romeo are also joining the bandwagon,” Michuki told Capital Lifestyle.
