This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet.

The amount of effort depends on the level of preparation and thought you put into the start of the site. You should have a clear end goal, and as many details as possible. With that in place you just kneed to know enough about the available WordPress functions so you can choose which is right for your set of options.
The first part of your question is simple: Yes WordPress can be used to create a site like that. The second part isn't a yes/no answer and varies as I mentioned in the first paragraph.
If I were going to design a site similar to that, I would probably make sure to utilize the WordPress Categories, Tags, Custom Post Types, then plan a strategy for listing them.
Here are a few good links to the features mentioned:

I hope that helps you out. I've learned my lessons the hard way. The best Advise I can give you is to plan out the required features and make a solid plan on executing them. This should save you a lot of time and back-stepping.
Same as OK said,
It can be handle nicely by Wordpress without any doubt. However it requires lots of customization. I would prefer to develop own with less plugin which make website much faster. For product you can use CPT (custom post type) and one other thing might need bit more effort is custom search function with different category and etc..
In fact if you know wordpress theme development with CPT and Taxonomy than you are almost there.
