Multifaceted app Grab is continuing to offer ways to serve the essential needs of Filipinos with the launch of GrabMart, a new addition to its roster of services that makes the acquisition of basic necessities like grocery items, personal care products and even medicines easier. 

The tech solution is designed to work around the enhanced community quarantine currently imposed across Luzon. With partners from a variety of specialty stores and retail establishments such as Robinsons Supermarket, FamilyMart, Starbucks at Home, ASSI Fresh Plaza, Fetch! Naturals, Dog City and Barcino, GrabMart’s grocery services provides on-demand delivery from as early as 30 minutes up to within a few hours.

The beta version is currently available in select areas of Quezon City, Pasig, Manila, Mandaluyong, Makati, San Juan, Valenzuela, Parañaque, and Taguig, but will soon expand to more locations within Metro Manila in the coming weeks.

“With the launch of GrabMart, we are hoping to further serve Filipinos during this trying time. Aligned with our community-wide GrabBayanihan COVID-19 response, GrabMart helps not only consumers who need access to daily essentials, but also our delivery-partners and merchant-partners whose livelihood and businesses have been affected by the situation,” said RJ Cabaluna, Grab Philippines country marketing head.

Similar to GrabFood and GrabExpress, cash payment is available but users are encouraged to pay via GrabPay and practice contactless delivery for safer transactions. Delivery fee during the beta period ranges from as low as P89 to P149 based on distance to the store, with a minimal service fee of P30 applicable for all orders.

To order from GrabMart, users within the serviceable areas just need to click on the “Mart” tile in the app and select orders from their desired merchant.
