RIYADH — LuLu, the region’s top retailer, joined hands with various delivery partners to further widen its reach and speed up its online grocery delivery orders, in view of the current curfew restrictions all the over the country to combat coronavirus.
As part of the new initiative, shoppers can now order their groceries through popular apps, such as Hunger Station, To you, Careem now and Wasel.
LuLu has created an exclusive list of essentials and daily groceries from which shoppers can order for speedy deliveries at their doorsteps.
Commenting on the new initiatives, Shehim Mohammed, Director of LuLu Hypermarkets in Saudi Arabia, said: “In wake of the current pandemic, we are exploring all possible avenues to ensure that residents in the Kingdom get their orders as quickly as possible. Apart from the food delivery apps, we have also tied up with Aramex, Samsa and many rent-a-car companies to expedite the delivery of online shopping orders.”
Hunger Station and To You have gone live with LuLu groceries on March 29 and others will be up and running in the next couple of days as confirmed by the authorities.
“We are fully aware of our responsibilities as a leading retailer and have ensured that our stores and warehouses are well stocked. We are working very closely with government authorities, suppliers and logistics partners to ensure uninterrupted and sustained supplies while maintaining the highest standards of hygiene, health and safety. We thank all our shoppers for their support and urge them to remain calm and stable, as there is absolutely no need for any anxiety or panic,” added Shehim Mohammed.
