Of all the supermarkets in Kenya, Tuskys Supermarket seems to be the only innovating retailers moving to adapt to the changing time with lightning speed.
As Kenyans were asked by the government to work from home so as to minimize the spread of the deadly Coronavirus, Tuskys partnered with Sendy purchase and deliver shopping at the request of the customer.
Currently, Tuskys Supermarket customers can do shopping online and have it delivered at their doorstep as they continue to remain indoors to combat the spread of Coronavirus.
During the week, Tuskys Supermarket did something new that has left Kenyans excited; preparing and delivering Ugali Nyama to them at the cost of 100 shillings.
Through a new service called “kibanda menu”, Tuskys Supermarket has partnered with Uber Eats to deliver food to Kenyans at their homes. Ugali Nyama will cost 100 shillings, Chapati Nyama at 120 shillings and Mukimo Nyama at 130 shillings. Delivery will be free.
For those who love Githeri, your needs have been covered. Githeri Kavu is going for 95 shillings, Chapati Madondo at 120 shillings while Ugali Matumbo Sukuma at 100 shillings.
According to Tuskys Supermarket CEO Mr. Dan Githua, the retailer has kicked off a pilot project to facilitate home deliveries to Kenyans using security-vetted “foot soldiers.” This will see at least 200 people earn a living as sales agents in different localities.
“Our customers have been providing great insights on touchpoints we can use to ease the existing COVID-19 challenges in relation to retail services, and we are actively responding,” he said.
As Kenyans continue to remain indoors, most businesses are prone to suffer especially those that require people to visit them physically. The only option available is to go online and start delivering goods and services.
Now that all bars have closed, this is the right time for liquor sellers to reap from online purchases.
