On March 5th, the world’s oldest fine leather goods house, Delvaux, launched its first official online flagship store in China in partnership with JD.com.
JD Health together with Sinopharm Group Hubei will make 15 million masks exclusively available to customers in Hubei province to help address the mask shortage situation since the outbreak of COVID-19. The first batch of 15 million masks went on sale on March 3.
On March 2nd, JD E-Space in Chongqing officially resumed operations. The store has seen steady customer flow and high conversion rates so far. With the COVID-19 outbreak, the store temporarily suspended operations in late January until March 2nd.
JD.com topped online sales of home appliances in 2019, according to a report on China’s Home Appliances Market released by the China Electronic and Information Industry Development Research Institute. In the report, JD accounted for 22.39% of the market share, while SUNING and Tmall ranked second and third, respectively.
Bo Ye is a JD Logistics driver and his wife Yanping Gao is the head ICU nurse who is volunteering in Wuhan. Since the end of January, Bo and Yanping have been 1,000 kilometers apart from each other. Yet, both of them are working on the frontlines to aid the fight against COVID-19. While Yanping is in the epicenter of Wuhan, Bo is working in logistics at Nanning, capital of Guangxi, to ensure delivery of daily necessities and medical materials.
JD’s courier Jun Xu was issued the very first pass to enter apartment compounds of Shanghai Hudong Xincun. Jun is one of at least 14 JD couriers to be issued the pass for Shanghai Hudong Xincun compounds, which covers 58 residential apartment buildings. In general, couriers are not permitted to enter residential compounds during the COVID-19 quarantine, so this marks an exception.
