Alesha Mart still unaware of complaints against it, says the company’s chairman
Alesha Mart today said it still does not know what the complaints are against the e-commerce platform.
"I do not know what the allegations are against us. A few other e-commerce platforms are ruining our business and reputation," said Manjurul Alam Sikder, chairman and managing director of Alesha Mart.
"We pay the prices in advance, bring the products and deliver those to the customers. I have given Tk 350 crore as advance to the vendors," he said.
Sikder spoke at a press conference at the Westin Dhaka.
Bangladesh Bank has recently sought bank account details of Alesha Mart and several banks have also stopped providing payment services to the company.
"We are subsidising these discounts not from buyers' money, but from our own funds. This is our business strategy. We have 11 organisations and four of them are profitable."
