; Running Your Essential Errands.

Whether it be food, groceries or other essential items, delivery is the new norm in the age of pandemic. For the past year, there has been a dramatic rise in online shopping platforms, allowing the customers to shop in the safety of their home, while avoiding the supermarket stockpiling chaos. 

A little over one year down the line, the grocery delivery services have contributed their efforts to meet the staggering demand. Some do it very efficiently, a few have been quite disappointing, while the rest is just all right.

And here we have, which belongs to the first kind. Or simply, the best kind. And here's why.; Running Your Essential Errands

With the pandemic, the Marketplace is their biggest attraction, for many good reasons. Let us elaborate on them; one by one.


Literally, EVERYTHING! Food & beverages, electronics, agriculture, health & beauty, mother & baby care, home & living, sports & fitness and toys; the list goes on. Each of them is categorised very neatly, so it's no hassle to browse through them.

For me, the Food & Beverages section looked quite appealing, as it offers a wide range of cakes, fresh vegetables, fruits, dry rations, cooked food, sweets, bottled/ canned goodies, refreshing drinks, short eats and so much more.
