MetroMart, the Philippine‘s leading online grocery and store delivery services have announced today that it will be officially launching its services to the public with its newest partnership deal with top membership shopping club S&R.
MetroMart is the brainchild of the Fazzini brothers Steffano and Christian whose family owns the DELI Italian grocery and who successfully ventured into Internet entrepreneurship in 2012 with Twitmusic. Together with a third co-founder, Stefan Seifert, they decided to slowly put the pieces together in 2012. Their latest business venture once again delves into digital entrepreneurship and hopes to make grocery and other retail purchasing a more convenient activity.
MetroMart understands the struggles of the consumer to go to the retail shops as well as the struggles of the businesses here in the Philippines during heavy traffic. The increase in traffic makes it more difficult for consumers to go to the retail stores and sometimes, this discourages the consumer to leave the house and buy completely.
“As we all know, traffic in the Philipines is a daily struggle and sols the frustration that comes with it. MetroMart wants to cut your trip to the local store and have those items delivered straight to you.” – Stefano Fazzini, MetroMart Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder
MetroMart delivers from the store to your door — groceries, pastries, pet food, electronics, cosmetics, medicine and the like. Its friendly shoppers and runners are on stand-by to pick up and deliver your items from your favorite stores, in as little as 90 minutes. Pay same store price, even in cash on delivery option.
And as we have already reached the digital age, this service is meant to fit the lifestyle of the Millennial generation and the generations to come.
According to MetroMart COO Bryan Fabiosa, as of now, MetroMart has chosen key cities in Metro Manila and hasn’t expanded nationwide just yet since they want to develop a strong base of key clients who need it most.
The launch event on March 14 in ASpaceManila. Makati City gave detailed information to its existing patrons a more expanded option in availing MetroMart’s delivery service, and attract newer interested parties as well as an opportunity for people to explore the benefit of being an S&R member.
