GADGET junkies, rejoice: IT retailer Challenger will be open around the clock on March 1, starting with its megastore at Funan's DigitaLife Mall.
Challenger will be the first dedicated IT retailer to open its doors 24 hours a day, it said in a statement on Thursday.
Along with making its selection of IT gadgets available after dark, Challenger said it will also provide 24-hour customer service for late night tech support needs.
Challenger recorded a 24 per cent growth in net profit in 2010, while its revenue grew 26 per cent. The IT retailer said the move to 24-hour operations was a bid to push its benchmarks further for the fiscal year of 2011.
'We have the infrastructure and capabilities to bring more value and offer more convenience to each and every customer. We are constantly finding new ways to make things easier and more accessible for them,' Ms Loo Pei Fen, Director of Marketing and Ecommerce at Challenger, said.
