The owners of the BIG Shopping Centers have seen the future and it is online, apparently – at least, according to corporate vice president Hay Galis.

“We intend to stand on the shoulders of giants and we believe in Israel we can be as strong as they are, as we offer a physical, financial and marketable platform that will be a significant player in e-commerce,” Galis told the Globes business news site.

BIG announced its new online shopping platform will be called BIG+ and will offer the various items available at its current malls. However, it will also offer international brands not currently sold to Israeli consumers.

The virtual mall expects to launch at the start of next year, and will make available a myriad selection of brands and retailers both from Israel and abroad.

  1. Use of the Israeli postal system wipes out advantages of on-line purchases: The recipient must travel to a post office, park, wait in a long line, then unpark and go home. The cost for an alternative messenger service wipes out price advantages advantage of on-line purchasing.

Should the country convert to American style mail boxes, small packages could be delivered directly. It's gonna take a massive effort to get the government to wake up to this reality and do something.
