Supermart, an online grocery store that was launched in April and started by delivering orders to Ikoyi, Victoria Island, Lekki and Lagos Island is now extending its coverage and services to involve Ikeja, Maryland, Ilupeju, Ogba, Yaba, Surulere and its surrounding areas. With Park ‘n’ Shop, Spar, Office R Us, Laterna Books and the recently added MedPlus as retail partners, Supermart consistently offers the full complement of groceries and everyday essentials that are only regularly found in a mega-supermarket.
Gbolahan Fagbure and Raphael Afaedor made it clear that their focus will be on delivering first class customer service. Raphael Afaedor explained, “There has been an enthusiastic response since we launched and today, we are extremely pleased to be taking the service to more parts of Lagos. It is also doubly exciting that we’ve added a leading pharmacy, Medplus, to the list of our retail partners”
The online store, Supermart plans to save its customers at least 6 hours every week, that time spent driving to and from supermarkets, looking for parking spots and queuing to pay. Delivering ordered goods on time to customers is also one of the best points of Supermart, as they deliver orders to customers as early as 3 hours in one of their three daily delivery slots (12 noon – 3pm, 3pm – 6pm and 6pm – 9pm).
Fagbure said, “we’ve been getting questions from potential customers asking when we are expanding to their neighbourhood and with today’s announcement of the extension of our service to the wider Ikeja area, Yaba and Surulere, we are confident we will be bringing a more convenient shopping experience to these people. Our emphasis has been and always will be on steady expansion that does not dilute the quality of the service we offer.”
