Where to shop for your groceries online in Singapore

There’s no need to panic buy with these shops that ship the freshest deals right to your door

By Fabian Loo

With the new circuit breaker measures kicking in tomorrow (April 6), everyone is encouraged to stay at home as much as possible. And while supermarkets and grocery stores are considered essential services and will remain open throughout the month, those looking to stay extra vigilant (or just feeling slightly lazy) can choose to have their groceries delivered straight to the doorstep thanks to these online stores. Just remember to buy only what you need – we’ve got a robust supply chain and a healthy stockpile of items in Singapore so you definitely do not need that extra roll of toilet paper.

This online-only portal has made some fresh implementations in light of the Covid-19 situation: there will be a stronger focus on daily essentials like rice and eggs, delivery slots are assigned based on location and address, and orders exceeding 100kg will be cancelled (read: purchase what you need). A contactless delivery option is available, and orders above $60 enjoy free delivery.
