Your groceries and other necessities can now be delivered right to the convenience to your doorstep within just a few hours in Metro Manila following Grab Philippines’ (Grab) recent launch of their GrabMart service on Monday, April 20.

In the announcement, Grab said the service which is currently at its beta phase, is available on its smartphone application and would allow you to purchase grocery items and other dry goods from their partner establishments. Other products such as medicines will also soon be offered on the platform as well.

“GrabMart is one of the few app-based grocery services that offers on-demand delivery, which means orders are expected to be delivered as early as 30 minutes or within a few hours,” Grab said.

During the platform’s beta phase, purchasing through the service would cost the total price of goods, plus a delivery fee at a minimum of PHP89 to a maximum of PHP149, and a flat rate of PHP30 per order. Fees may change after the beta phase of the program, Grab said.

Currently, the service is available in select areas throughout Metro Manila:

1) Quezon City
2) Pasig
3) Manila
4) Mandaluyong
5) Makati
6) San Juan
7) Valenzuela
8) Parañaque
9) Taguig

More locations within Metro Manila will be announced in the coming weeks.

Retail partners include Robinsons Supermarket, Great Deals E-commerce Corporation, FamilyMart, Starbucks at Home, ASSI Fresh Plaza, Fetch! Naturals, Dog City, and Barcino.

The service was launched to help provide you your necessities, as well as a means of livelihood for their delivery-partners and continued income for businesses, during the enhanced community quarantine in Luzon, said RJ Cabaluna, Grab country marketing head.

“With the launch of GrabMart, we are hoping to further serve Filipinos during this trying time,” Cabaluna said.

Similar to its GrabFood and GrabExpress service, Grab said that cash payment is still available but due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, they are encouraging users to opt for cashless, digital payments instead via their GrabPay options.
