“GrapeStars is unintentionally launching at a time where consumers are shopping online in favour of instore,” said Ronn Torossian, CEO and Founder at 5WPR. “Knowing there’s a single platform where you can find exactly what you want, and have delivered to your door is more than enough to entice new users.
