SMEC also runs an online store, 1st Avenue Online, which is in operation and allows purchases via computers, smartphones or an on-site touch-screen monitor.
SMEC will also provide training opportunities for working adults pursuing courses in e-commerce branding and digital marketing, workplace digital literacy and inventory management.
