Good news, shoppers – from March 15 onwards, you can now do your grocery shopping with RedMart on Lazada.
Lazada Group announced that they’ve stepped up on the supermarket front in Southeast Asia, by fully integrating their platform with Singapore’s homegrown online grocer RedMart, which they previously acquired in 2016. While both count Alibaba as their parent company, customers had to buy groceries from RedMart, with all other shopping done via Lazada.
The full integration into Lazada will effectively boost that grocery and supermarket catalogue to over 165,000 products – easily the largest assortment of groceries available to purchase in any one store in Singapore.
Lazada Singapore CEO James Chang announced: “This is a significant milestone for us. Together with RedMart, we have the best talents, operational infrastructure and an even bigger base of committed sellers and brands to create the best supermarket shopping experience for Singapore shoppers.”
“We want to drive the evolution of grocery shopping in the region by combining our unparalleled assortment of products and superior logistics network to transform the way customers get their daily essentials and fresh produce,” expressed Jing Yin, co-president of Lazada Group. “Most of us shop for groceries and other household items very frequently. This presents a unique opportunity for Lazada to be part of our daily lives.”
Orders on the new RedMart on Lazada will continue to be fulfilled by RedMart in customers’ chosen two-hour delivery slot between 7 AM and 10 PM, seven days a week including public holidays, while orders with other Lazada sellers will be fulfilled separately.
Here’s how you can Opt-in your existing RedMart account into Lazada:
RedMart customers will still be able to shop on the existing RedMart app and website until 14 March 2019, 11.59pm. Thereafter, customers are encouraged to download the Lazada app to continue enjoying high-quality fresh and frozen food items and other daily necessities delivered to their doorstep, hassle-free.
