The Shopping Festival hosted by JDDJ and Shop Now to celebrate Chinese New Year, would launch from January 7 and continue to participate in the online New Year Festival held by the Minister of Commerce and Shanghai Municipal Commission of Commerce.
The platform partners more than 150,000 offline physical stores, well-known chain retailers and brand owners, integrating online and offline omni-channel resources, and launches multiple rounds of promotion activities in over 1,700 cities and counties.
The other highlight of this campaign is the supply of all categories during the New Year’s festival, including festive gifts, dairy products, personal care, beverages, mobile phones, flowers and cakes and so on.
