At some point in your life as a moderately stylish Nigerian youth, you'll have to face an important choice: buy clothes or starve to death. You'd think it'd be an easy decision until you spot a pair of jeans you absolutely couldn't live without.
That visceral need to have nice things without having to sell a kidney is what makes Kechi Lauren's online store, The 5K Shop, such a legitimate godsend.
The 5k Shop is an independent online retailer that offers a variety of products ranging from branded items, stocked from other retailers, to its own label, T5S – and nothing in the store ever costs more than ₦5,000.
While the store is definitely more focused on their female customers – with everything from ruffle tops to shift dresses – it isn't only for them: the guys can also find some really nice button-up shirts, polos and ties at pretty amazing prices.
About the company's mission, Kechi stated:
"Here we believe you can be trendy without breaking the bank. We just want to make your wardrobe and wallet work for you!"
