Same-day delivery from all your favorite local retail shops
Shopquest combines the convenience of fast, free shipping with the satisfaction of shopping locally. With a simple, on-demand mobile app, users can buy right from their phones and have their purchase delivered right to their door in as little as two hours.
Any clothing store. Any cosmetic store. Any footwear store.
No expensive overnight shipping charges, no long waits, no headaches. Just ridiculously fast shipping from all the stores you already know and love.
We shop online because it’s convenient. Shopquest is giving every brick-and-mortar retailer the ability to offer their customers the same convenience that Amazon provides without springing for a fleet of delivery vehicles.
Brick-and-mortar versus online retailers.
We know the story: Amazon is crushing smaller, local stores with their fast, free shipping and their I-can-shop-from-my-couch convenience.
This story feeds the myth that a new generation of shoppers care nothing about shopping locally, as long as they get their free shipping.
Turns out, that’s not true. Shoppers are fiercely loyal to companies that treat them well, including local shops.
The problem is convenience often trumps loyalty. We want to shop locally, but if we get a better experience online, the choice is easy.
But what if local shops could offer the same convenience and the same fast, free shipping? What if we didn’t have to choose?
The Shopquest vision is simple: we think shoppers should be able to open their phones, purchase any retail apparel, cosmetics or footwear they choose and have it delivered to their doorstep in less than two hours.
It’s a shopper’s dream.
And it’s precisely what Shopquest delivers.
Shopquest is the only delivery service that focuses on retail, cosmetics and footwear, combining a local shopping experience with a third-party courier service for the ultimate in convenience.
It’s fast. It’s simple It’s the future of shopping, now.
When you shop at Amazon, it’s often difficult to tell who you’re buying from: anyone can set up a quick online store and try to sell you something.
From large department stores to cozy, independent boutiques, it’s all at your fingertips.
And moments later, it’s at your door, ready to be installed by a certified pro.
Shopquest gives you the confidence of buying from local shops and major retailers without the pitfalls of other shopping apps: scrolling through pre-picked items that you don’t care about or putting up with a limited number of products.
With Shopquest, you’re in total control.
How many stores in your neighborhood have closed their doors because they can’t compete with the likes of Amazon?
Shopquest offers those shops and major retailers alike an unprecedented competitive advantage: give your customers what they want (same-day delivery) without the massive expense of investing in a fleet of delivery vehicles or new routing capabilities.
So your favorite scores gain a competitive advantage, and you score gorgeous new handbag.
What could be better than that?
Shopquest just finished its first beta and has been used internally. Does not want to go public until we have marketing and operation 100%.
Groundbreaking Development Process
Shopquest is built using a revolutionary new development platform, Meteor.js. Meteor is the first collaborative development platform that allows real-time coding throughout all development platforms, including desktop, mobile and tablet form factors.
Because Shopquest is built with Meteor, we can drastically reduce the time and cost of traditional app development, staying lean and agile and easily adapting to whatever demands the market may throw at us.
