Amid the pandemic, the market for grocery deliveries in Singapore is expanding with a new offer of next-day delivery for more than 10,000 everyday products from Grab today.
Deliveries cost S$4.99 for each order, with a minimum basket value of S$20 required. Order more than S$50 worth of products and the delivery is free.
The new service announced today, called GrabSupermarket, is a partnership between Grab and local supermarket chain HAO. It expands on Grab’s previous GrabMart offering.
The company said the new service will offer more than 5,000 unique products from HAO, including meat and poultry, vegetables, frozen food, dry goods and drinks. These will come in handy during Singapore’s current restrictions on social gatherings, it believes.
To get items delivered the next day, users have to order before 6pm. They can select time slots between 5pm and 9pm, each available in 30-minute windows.
In Singapore, Grab’s offering will rival a number of other such delivery services, such as Lazada’s RedMart, Amazon’s Fresh and Foodpanda’s pandamart.
Foodpanda’s offering makes use of what it calls “cloud stores” and promises to deliver in only 25 minutes. However, it only has 4,000 items on offer.
Amazon offers free two-hours deliveries for orders above S$60 but you need to pay a monthly subscription fee of S$2.99 to get onto Amazon Prime first. Otherwise, free standard delivery within two to three business days is offered for orders above S$40.
