Here's A List Of Supermarkets Offering Grocery Delivery Services In Lagos During The Lockdown
Shopping online is not entirely a new trend, but its adoption has spiralled with the increased need for eCommerce. Besides reducing the time and stress involved in visiting a mall or an open market for groceries and foodstuff, online ordering has become apparently necessary since some major cities in Nigeria are currently on lockdown and movements are restricted. So it's given that we all could do with a service like grocery delivery during lockdown.
While some platforms have always rendered this service, other physical stores have also adapted their models to provide grocery deliveries. Orders are placed via channels such as WhatsApp, websites, and mobile applications, and services provided cover a range of edibles and other home essentials. Here is a non-definitive list, in no particular order; of online stores and supermarkets who are in the business of delivering groceries in Lagos.
