There used to be a time when spending valuable minutes trawling the aisles of kitchen markets or supershops was normal and safe. The goal was to get in, grab the essentials and get out. But, for many, the process was neither simple nor quick. Now, amid the pandemic, frequent trips to the grocery store or kitchen market has become an even tougher challenge, which is better avoided for the sake of our health.
But as the old adage goes, "modern problems require modern solutions." And there's a modern solution just a tap away. In recent times, online delivery platforms have reduced the need for multiple physical trips to wet markets or superstores. In just one year, demand for online delivery of groceries has increased manifold indicating that consumers are getting used to the speed and convenience online delivery services offer.
Services like foodpanda have greatly contributed to introducing and popularising quick delivery of groceries and other household essentials. With its offerings of q-commerce (quick commerce), foodpanda has provided consumers an easier alternative to physical trips to the grocery stores. In addition to the option to order from hundreds of local shops, 'pandamart' foodpanda's own chain of cloud stores (dark stores) has taken online grocery delivery to a new level. With the launch of 'pandamart' dark stores, foodpanda has introduced 24/7 grocery delivery in under 30 minutes, a first in Bangladesh.
So, a smooth ordering experience and super-quick delivery in under 30 minutes any time of the day—be it early in the morning or late at night—is what makes pandamart a smarter alternative to brick and mortar supermarkets. So the next time you need groceries, you can open the foodpanda app or website and tap on pandamart, you'll find pretty much every item needed at home. pandamart is delivering 24/7 in Dhaka, and 7am-1am in other parts of the country.
It is pretty evident that in 2021 most people are incredibly busy — too busy to make long grocery lists, and far too busy to navigate multiple stores and outlets to grab all the essentials. Work, traffic, and other responsibilities render any and all free time as precious commodities, and there are better things to do with the time than spending it on grocery shopping.
Virtual grocery options have gained much popularity as they take away our hassle and save time. One quick search lets you scan the entire platform in a couple of seconds. Beyond that, shopping via the internet allows for quick price comparisons, easy coupon and voucher redemption, a seamless ordering process and really fast delivery at doorsteps. So no more bracing ourselves (with masks, gloves, face-shields, and sanitizers) to walk to the next block to get a pack of detergent. Whatever you need, be it a bottle of your favorite fizzy beverage, a bag of rice, fresh fruits ,babycare essentials or pet food– the solution is in your hands. pandamart has over 3,000 offerings so the chances are high that you'll find what you need quickly and with ease. The best part? The service is no longer confined to Dhaka and its neighbourhoods. People in all major cities across the country can now enjoy the service and conveniences pandamart offers.
For people who are already using this service, there's no need for an introduction. And if you are not, it is high time to get familiar with online grocery delivery platforms such as pandamart. You may not hear the wheels of a shopping cart scratching over the tiles of a supershop in the near future, but be prepared to hear the delivery man knocking at your door soon after you place an order.
