Ahead of the country’s 74th Independence Day, leading e-commerce giant Snapdeal on Tuesday announced the launch of a ‘Pride of India’ e-store to offer curated patriotic-themed items for costumers.

In a statement issued, Snapdeal said, “The launch will have products from Indian artisans, weavers, craftsmen and women entrepreneurs. It will help sellers of these indigenous products revive business as they rebuild their businesses after the massive disruption due to the coronavirus pandemic.”

Speaking on the store launch, a Snapdeal spokesperson said, “India’s small businesses comprise the majority of the sellers on Snapdeal. These sellers have added thousands of new products to the e-store this year. This year, we included patriotic-themed collections, indigenous items, and products from famous local brands to the e-store. These are across categories like apparel, decor, fashion accessories, cosmetics, and fitness.”
