The recent implementation of community quarantine in Metro Manila to help contain the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has caused panic among Filipinos, who then swarmed grocery stores to stock up on goods.
But there's no need to panic. Apart from the government saying the movement of goods to and from Metro Manila will not be affected by the quarantine, groceries in malls have remained opened.
Besides, there are online grocery stories that will deliver goods right to your doorstep. Allow us to list them below
PushKart is the online grocery store of Fisher Supermarket. It has an app, in addition to its website, where shoppers must log- n before any grocery shopping can be done. While PushKart touts its next-day delivery, there are limited delivery slots. Cash and credit card payment options are accepted; delivery fees start at P120. Website. Facebook.
Customers also need to create an account and log in on WalterMart's website to accomplish their grocery shopping. They can place their orders at anytime but orders placed 6 p.m. and beyond are considered next-day orders. There is a same-day delivery options, but again, shoppers must select their preferred delivery slot. In this time of COVID-19 however, delivery slots get full quickly, so perhaps another option: store pick-ups are possible. Website. Facebook.
