Popular multi-service app Grab remains true to its commitment of helping Filipino families conveniently access groceries and everyday essentials through a new partnership between GrabMart and SM Markets. GrabMart consumers can therefore place orders from selected SM markets via the app - including SM Supermarket, Hypermarket and Savemore - and receive their orders at home in just an hour.

Available since late June, GrabMart users in Metro Manila and Cebu can order fresh and frozen produce, groceries, home care products and personal care essentials among others from SM stores.

"We are thrilled to welcome SM Markets as GrabMart's latest partner. At Grab, we always strive to give the consumer the best shopping experience, and SM's vast network of stores and wide range of products will make shopping more convenient to Filipinos, especially people short on time or unable to easily visit stories, such as families and busy young workers. As we continue to manage the pandemic situation, we hope that the addition of SM Markets to GrabMart will encourage more people to adopt online shopping," said Grab Philippines Head of Deliveries Anton Bautista in a statement sent to The Manila Times Lifestyle.

SM Supermarket's President, Jojo Tagbo, likewise expressed he believes that the company's partnership with GrabMart will help families more easily manage the day's challenging times, particularly thanks to SM Markets' wide variety of products and Grab's fast delivery times.

"The pandemic has affected the lifestyles of our customers including how they shop for groceries. Our goal is to provide them with multiple convenient ways of how they can get what they need from SM Markets. From physically going to the store, shopping online, and call-to-deliver, we offer choices where they can be comfortable. And now, we are partnering with the leading superapp in the country further strengthening our omnichannel offerings," he noted in the same statement.
