An Indian couple in Auckland has taken the initiative of moving another step-in door-to-door-service by offering delivery of groceries and other items from major supermarkets throughout Auckland.
‘Grocery Express’ is a service provided by ontherocksnow.com through its online platform.
For the Happy Hour
As published in our Web Edition dated February 18, 2017 and our print edition dated March 1, 2017, Ontherocksnow.com was established on February 6, 2017 by Joseph Chacko (Managing Director), his wife Mary Mathew (Chief Executive) and Tejas Delvi (Business Development Manager) as an online service for delivery of beer, wine and spirits through a robust procedure and secure payment system.
As published in our Web Edition dated February 18, 2017 and our print edition dated March 1, 2017, the trio was keen to expand their services.
‘Grocery Express’ is a part of the online platform Ontherocksnow.com.
Orders can be placed on Freephone 0800-243377 or by downloading Mobile Apps on Play Store for Android phones or Apple Store for iPhones.
Service to all
Ms Mathew said that it is not uncommon for people to suddenly need essential items such as bread, milk, butter, cheese, yoghurt, canned vegetables, soups, tea, coffee and a host of other items and may not be able to go out and make purchases directly.
“They can place their orders by clicking on ‘Grocery Express’ on our website www.ontherocksnow.com and we will ensure delivery of the items within two hours. This would be at just $5 per delivery,’ she said.
‘Grocery Express’ however is not a 24/7 operation. The first order would be processed at 9 am and the final order at 5 pm.
“Delivery would be made in areas mentioned on the company’s website, where orders can be placed. We have trained personnel to ensure that goods are delivered to the right persons after checking their ID if required. Our website is very secure with SSL Certificate and a secure gateway to prevent any type of fraud,” Ms Mathew said.
