KOCHI: Looking to buy Onam products? Then head to ‘www.kudumbashreebazaar.com.’ The online bazaar launched by Kudumbashree promises to line up a number of products for Onam shopping.

Rejeena T M, a district coordinator of Kudumbashree District Mission said the online sale was getting a good response.

For delivering the products, Kudumbshree has tied-up with the Postal Department. Regina said the tie-up with the department will ensure the products are delivered at the buyer’s doorstep. On the ‘online shelves’ are groceries, personal care products, home décor items, garments, jewellery, household goods, bakery and soft drinks, housekeeping and cleaning equipment and health products.
