The districts of Colombo, Gampaha and Kalutara were recently declared as the high-risk zones for COVID-19, and therefore, the curfew placed on those districts will continue until further notice. This was announced yesterday, just a couple of hours before the curfew was reimposed, so some of us didn't have enough time left to properly restock our groceries.
If you live in Colombo, and feel like your grocery department at home is running out of stocks, worry not, because PickMe Food has introduced a convenient delivery option to save the day.
PickMe Food has been delivering groceries for months now, but this time around, they've teamed up with Sathosa, to make sure that you have enough groceries, dry rations and daily necessities, even during curfew hours. This service is currently available in Colombo, Dehiwala, Mount Lavinia, Moratuwa, Piliyandala, Narahenpita, Ratmalana, Kotte, Rajagiriya, Nugegoda, Kandana, Ja-ela, Kiribathgoda, Ganemulla, Peliyagoda, Kandy, Pallekele, Katugastota, Madawala, Peradeniya and Waththegama.
It's quite simple. First up, open the PickMe app on your phone, and go to the PickMe Food tab.
Under Restaurants, select Sathosa.
The groceries will be delivered to your doorstep within 24 hours.
Furthermore, you can get your gas cylinders delivered through PickMe Food in the same manner.
If you don't already have PickMe app on your phone, you can download it through here.
