Asian grocery retailer Yihaodian stores are tagged to physical locations such as landmarks and, brilliantly, in front of competitor supermarkets. However, they exist only in the virtual world, and can only be accessed through the Yihaodian mobile app.At present users physically travel to its location, pull up the app on a mobile device, and look around through its screen. As if by magic, store shelves appear, stocked with products, deals, and exclusive discounts. Users physically walk the aisles just as they would in a brick-and-mortar store, and tap items on screen to order them. Items are then delivered to their homes or businesses through the users’ existing Yihaodian accounts.
