Colombo, Sri Lanka -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/08/2015 -- A shopping experience like no other, Wasi.lk is the physical manifestation of a creative vision of two successful and experienced young entrepreneurs: Christopher Wijeysooriya and Mirfaz Mohideen. Having spent a considerable number of years in the Unites States, both Chris and Mirfaz felt that life in Sri Lanka was too slow for their liking. "We lived in the US for over 6 years, and got used to the habit of ordering everything online which saved us so much time and hassle. Coming back to Sri Lanka in 2012 and having to do everything manually didn't work out well for us… therefore we decided to start an online eShop." Their aim was to open a shop that offered reasonable pricing options and a customer friendly service. Since its inception in 2013, Wasi.lk has been able to stay true to this motive, rising in esteem and popularity as more and more clients started using the website to fulfill their shopping needs.
The term 'Wasi' in itself holds an allure as it defines the Lankan feeling with cultural intonations. Derived from the Sinhala language, the word Wasi gives the impression of positivity and mutual benefit. Elaborating further in this regard, Chris states the real reason behind the selection: 'We wanted to make sure we find a name true to our company… to make sure we stayed "Made in Sri Lanka."
However the main focus of Wasi.lk has always centered on the world of the customer: catering to the core needs of the average Sri Lankan shopper, Wasi also provides new services that may please even the most selective of clients. Presenting a collection of items that range from Wasi.lk mobile phones, Wasi.lk Samsung & Sony LED TV's, cameras, computers, healthcare and personal care products to appliances such as Wasi.lk refrigerators & Wasi.lk washing machine, and toys, the list on the site keeps expanding in a bid to realize every possible shopping need.
Fueled on by the drive and passion to succeed, the team has further introduced many attractive incentives that are bound to grab the heart of the consumer. "Be it our path-breaking services like Cash on Delivery, a 7-day return policy, free Islandwide shipping coupled with NEXT DAY delivery and of course the great prices that we offer, everything we do revolves around our obsession with providing our customers a memorable online shopping experience," Chris shares enthusiastically on the subject, adding that the website also carries special offers at regular intervals to maintain consumer interest. "For all Wasi.lk Sports Supplement products we're running a campaign offering FREE shaker bottles for every single purchase. We will be running Radio Advertisements from July 5th to September 31st, and plan on giving away FREE gifts for listeners during radio shows."
The drive to climb further ever present in his words, Chris reveals his plans to expand the business to include showroom space in the heart of Colombo. The store will carry the same range of items that are available on the website; customers who enjoy doing the weekly shopping rounds will find the Wasi showroom to their liking with their easy price range and frequent promotional campaigns.
The journey thus far has been commendable; within the space of two years, the eShop has been able to cement its position as a complete online shopping experience. "Our vision for the company is to make Wasi.lk the #1 online shopping website in Sri Lanka & Sri Lankan's living abroad…" Chris states in a moment of honest revelation. He accepts the challenge of creating a shopping culture like no other, in which a customer enters and exits with a smile on his face. Embarked upon excellence, the future of Wasi.lk appears bright and set to take on the world.
