Gone are the days when one has to leave the house to run several mundane errands: pay the bill, go to the grocery, buy something. The Internet has once again proven itself useful in the time when movement is limited and the best thing we can do is stay at home.
Shop for groceries
One of the fastest-growing on-demand grocery and essentials delivery services in the country, GrabMart now has over 150 partner outlets and new categories since its launch two months ago.
Now available in 17 cities in Metro Manila, GrabMart allows Grab app users to purchase groceries from Ultramega, Lawson, Fisher Supermarket, and Shell Select; over-the-counter medicines from Generika and Family Doc; fresh produce and meat products from Zagana, Meat Depot, The Market by Holly Farms, and Les Aunor Farmer’s Market; and home Internet solutions from PLDT and Smart.
GrabMart Beta was first rolled out in April starting with retail partners Robinsons Supermarket, Great Deals E-commerce Corporation, Family Mart, Starbucks at Home, ASSI Fresh Plaza, Fetch! Naturals, Dog City, and Barcino.
