[TechWeb] reported on June 4th news, Suning has just announced that, from June 8th onwards, all the goods all Suning stores, Tesco official store sales will be achieved with the price of the same product with suning.com.
this means that Suning to break the development pattern of sales platform parallel two on the line, to achieve integration of online and offline, but also helps to eliminate the line of left and right hand Bo problem.
in fact, the move is also seen as an important strategic initiatives Suning accelerated 020 transformation, but at the same time Suning will also face the challenge of the three, whether they can meet these challenges, the key to this change.
challenges: the uniform price first filled products
in the past few years, in order to avoid the conflict between online and offline sales, Suning adopted a compromise, the sale of the product is online and offline segment, many products are taken or customized underwriting, that consumers only in online or offline to buy a certain product.
