1. LMO – Local Market Offers

Founded in 2020 by Mrs Lakshmi Prabhala, LMO is a new-age E-commerce Store that is designed to support local merchants.

To strengthen and support local merchants, LMO provides easy-to-use features and helps them to transform their previous business model.

LMO’s offering-

● It covers 160+ business categories; groceries, fashion, rental cars, restaurants, electronic items, arts and classes, and many more.

● It provides services in 12 different local languages to support people associated with each language.

● Local clinics, salons, restaurants, or more service-based merchants can access the feature of online booking. Customers can book their appointment online easily with LMO.

● LMO offers inbuilt inventory which has 14000+ images that cover almost all major businesses. Merchants can either use these images or create their catalogues easily.

Thus, it’s the one-stop solution for all your needs.
