“Back then, it was a bold move for us to digitalise. Now, we’re thriving despite the pandemic.” – Darren Cheong, Irene Aquarium
Irene Aquarium in Petaling Jaya, Selangor, has been serving its surrounding communities for over two decades. The family-owned pet shop is now managed by mother-and-son duo Vivien and Darren Cheong.
A few years back, she saw the potential of gaining more sales online and wanted to digitalise the business, even though she lacked knowledge and experience in digitalisation.
Thanks to the support from her digitally-savvy sons, a website was set up and not long after, they ventured into popular ecommerce and social media platforms.
Today, with the current pandemic, Irene Aquarium has not only survived but also thriving with increased online sales – all thanks to Vivien’s courage to digitalise and the family’s ingenuity.
