Among its products are leading smartphones brands like Samsung, Tecno, Infinix as well as computers and accessories. Hashmart also stocks networking products (IT), home appliances, home entertainment, and wearables such as watches, sunglasses and other lifestyle products. It also offers global shopping services.
“Hashmart endeavors to maintain the highest standards for our products and services,” says Mr Husssein. “Our work force remains committed to upholding the principles of quality and integrity that define the company.”
He said Hashmart has been attracting more shoppers since it was established due to a unique combination of superior product quality, durability and commitment to customer service. He said the retailer offers fast delivery services within Kenya with weekly and monthly promotional offers of up to 50% discount.
