"Customers can now enjoy the experience of purchasing their favourite items online from the convenience of their homes and on top receiving their merchandise swiftly through the most reliable postal service in Qatar," Doha Bank said .
"The e-mall which is owned and operated by Doha Bank, has become a landmark for all the savvy shoppers who want to get the best deals from a selection of the finest and most reliable merchants in town, whose list entails iSpot, CGC Nokia, Mannai Corporation, Blue Salon and Jumbo Electronics etc."
