Monday, June 8th, 2020 | 1969 Views

Grab has expanded GrabMart into eight Southeast Asian countries, with Cambodia being the latest addition. GrabMart scaled from two to eight Southeast Asian countries in three months and is live in 50 cities across Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, the Philippines, Myanmar and Cambodia today.

GrabMart, which started as an on-demand daily essentials delivery service to support consumers during the COVID-19 pandemic, has partnered with over 3,000 stores in the region. They include leading supermarkets and convenience store chains like FairPrice Xpress, FamilyMart, Mahnaz Food, Maxvalu and Tops.

GrabMart provides consumers a convenient way to purchase a wide range of consumer goods including groceries, home essentials, health and beauty items, gifts, and much more. For merchants, GrabMart offers a new channel to reach an unprecedented number of consumers now making more purchases online.

“COVID-19 has accelerated the adoption of on-demand delivery services across Southeast Asia, and we were able to tap on existing technologies, our extensive delivery network, and operational footprint to quickly scale GrabMart across the region. In a post-COVID19 normal, we anticipate demand for delivery services to remain elevated. We will continue to double down on expanding our GrabMart service to support consumers’ shopping needs,” said Demi Yu, Regional Head of GrabFood and GrabMart.

With GrabMart, consumers can shop and order from convenience stores, supermarkets and specialty shops, and have their items delivered in under an hour or at a scheduled time.
