Mitchells Plain Online Store (Pty) Ltd was founded in July 2015, from a living room in Rocklands, Mitchells Plain, with a resourceful R50. The idea was simply to provide convenience for local residents of Mitchells Plain by shopping online and having products delivered to their households within the same day or next day.

As progress was made, Mitchells Plain Online Store (MPOS) received responses from people outside Mitchells Plain and Cape Town, and basically had to source the infrastructure to ship on a nationally sphere.
