A Hong Kong students working in a library
Xu Yaqi is a senior student of Sun-Yat-Sen University and the president of Hong Kong Students’ Association of Canton (HKSAC). She said this is her second time to join the project and she worked for Grandbuy, the largest traditional retailer in Guangzhou.
“I have the chance to work at Grandbuy’s retail store for two weeks and then its e-commerce branch for three weeks,” said Xu, “I found less people go shopping at the malls in Guangzhou. They usually try the products at stores and buy them online.”
But when working for the e-commerce branch, Xu Yaqi was surprised at the development of the online retailers and the logistics in mainland China. “I’m also surprised at the way that Grandbuy is working so hard to expand its online sales channels and face new challenges.”
