[Final with present info!] What happened to SALAM SHOP?

Salam Ladies (and may be Gents!) πŸ’πŸ§•πŸ»

I know its late... but Happy New Year!!
Inshallah wishing you all well for this year!

Hopefully this will be the last episode!

The serious problem was, that the wave of HALAL BOOM was slowly declining at that moment.

We have started LATE to surf that was about to calm down.

It would have been different if started since 3 or 4 years ago, then by tsunami stage we get the hit and by now we were already established a strong business, but it was too late.

Nevertheless, when we had few stocks of nailpolish, it kind of made hit.
And actually it was my boss’ dream to sell nailpolish, so it was great that his dream has in a way came true, but I will repeat, it was LATE... πŸ˜–
We came to stage it was very nagative and kept in my mind that this would go nowhere better even if we tried harder.

We did publish the latest Halal Life to promote our business, but after publishing, sadly my boss had told me that Halal devision will be demolished and we will close down everything by end of September 2018.

Simply we were not making any revenue for quite some time.
And it would eventually affect his core business.
It must have been a tough decision for him because he must give up his dream and helds responsibility of my financial situation. πŸ’Έ

But I have mentioned to him,
Inshallah Allah would give me rizk so you do not need to worry about me.

Of course to be honest I was very worried and upset about being jobless and felt very insecure.
But my husband was telling me “you should never worry about money, I will do anything to make you happy, ok?” πŸ‘¨πŸ»
Alhamdulillah I am so blessed to have a thoughtful husband like him.

So anyway, starting from beginning of September we have started clearance sale.
We have dropped the price 80% off, and because of that we could sell 80~90% of our merchandise.
That was great!! πŸ˜ƒπŸ™ŒπŸ»

After selling most of our merchandise, by end of September, wehave closed down everything.


That’s the end of the story of SALAM SHOP.

Since I was one of supplier of SALAM SHOP, I had few merchandise unsold and still in the stock in my warehouse room.

I did not think to continue selling Hijabs anymore, but I have to sell off the stocks.
At the same time I was thinking to leave Hijab selling business and start selling turbans and cosmetics instead! πŸ’„πŸ’…

For that I have re-opened my shop and sell Turbans, Cosmetics and rest of Hijab stuff.


For anyone who read this article and bought any of my products over 3000 yen, the first 2 customers will get a set hard copies of all editions of HALAL LIFE! Yay!! πŸ™ŒπŸ»

What happened to SALAM SHOP?

Salam Ladies (and may be Gents!) πŸ’
Oh my Allah! It's November already!
My last post was on August so it's been already 3 months! What had happened?! lol
Oh well, what happened was, that SALAM SHOP had CLOSED permanently.
Yep I know, it must be shocking for some people. It was such a short period of time running that online store. So some people are curious and had asked me why I have closed the shop.
Well let me tell you something.
SALAM SHOP has never been my shop. lol
Many people thought I own that shop, but thats not correct.
I was working for a company called Ace Dentsu Inc (following described as Ace), and that company had published HALAL LIFE magazine and thats how all started.
It was started by an employee of Ace who is Muslimah and one day just very random she approached to her boss (the founder of Ace) and came up with idea of SALAM SHOP, because Halal Products were totally booming at that time.
Ace is networking company and has nothing to do with Islam or Halal. But my boss got in…
