LIFESTYLE delivery app Pick.A.Roo now has over 1,000 brands and over 150,000 products from different stores and categories.
Pick.A.Roo is under Agile Digital Ventures, Inc., a subsidiary of Megaworld Corp.
“We have been carefully curating and selecting our merchant partners to provide only the best offerings to our customers,” Agile Digital Ventures President Kevin Andrew L. Tan said in an e-mailed statement on Friday.
The app allows customers to order groceries from supermarkets such as The Marketplace, Shopwise, S&R, Landmark, AllDay, Robinsons Supermarket, MerryMart, and UltraMega Grocery.
Customers may also order from restaurants and food groups like Foodee Global Concepts’ Tim Ho Wan and Mesa; The Moment Group’s 8Cuts Burgers and Din Tai Fung; the Max’s Group’s Max’s and Dencio’s; Italianni’s, TGIF, and Denny’s of The Bistro Group; and The UCC Group’s Mos Burger and Coco Ichibanya.
Quick service restaurants McDonald’s, S&R Pizza, and Shakey’s Pizza may also be accessed via the Pick.A.Roo app, as well as food from hotels in Manila like Shangri-la Hotel’s Shangri-la at Home, and fine dining restaurants such as The Test Kitchen by Josh Boutwood, among others.
“Latest data from the company show that 75% of Pick.A.Roo’s transactions are through the use of credit cards, and customers use the app at an average of at least once a week for groceries and up to thrice a week for food,” the company said.
Aside from food and groceries, the app also carries pharmaceutical stores such as South Star Drug, Medexpress, and MerryMartOTC. It also has homeware brands, gadget shops such as PowerMac and Digital Walker, and appliances.
Pick.A.Roo allows users to shop from different stores at the same time and check-out in one go.
Customers may also schedule the delivery of their items, although food delivery services may be completed within 25 minutes and at least an hour for the delivery of groceries and medicines.
“Part of our vision is to constantly challenge ourselves to provide the best service to our discerning customers. It is always our goal to decrease the waiting time for delivery,” Mr. Tan said. — Keren Concepcion G. Valmonte
