As we prepare to enter into the fourth phase of the Movement Control Order (MCO) which extends up to 12 May 2020, it’s important to remember that we need to continue doing our part as Malaysians to be extra careful.
Although our Prime Minister announced that some rules will be loosened during this stage, it’s still advisable that we continue to #StayAtHome to flatten the curve. This also means limiting your exposure to COVID-19 as much as possible when you head out for a grocery run! But why risk it when you can make all your purchases online and opt for grocery delivery?
For those in search for a quick way to get their supplies while minimising contact as much as possible, here are 5 places you can get your fresh supply of groceries online within the Klang Valley during the MCO!
AEON BIG is a well-known hypermarket chain that’s found across several major cities in Malaysia. Equipped with a wide range of fresh groceries and household needs, AEON BIG offers a more affordable price range for all.
Apart from changing their operating hours to align with the new regulation, AEON BIG is also offering a drive-thru system for everyone to further minimise contact as much as possible when shopping. Simply place your order online, make your payment, select a time slot and you’ll be able to pick your groceries up at the nearest assigned AEON supermarket.
Village Grocer is another popular supermarket chain which you’ll be able to find across Klang Valley as well as selected cities. Specialising in premium goods, you’ll be able to fulfil your entire household’s pantry checklist! Apart from internationally and locally-sourced fresh ingredients, you can also find dry goods, household items, dairy products and more.
Throughout the MCO period, Village Grocer is offering all members of their Bites loyalty program an easy way to purchase goods and collect them from an assigned location. Simply log in or register as a member, select your desired items, make your payment and select a pick-up time and date. All orders will be up for collection at Village Grocer in M City. The Bites membership is free for all to join.
There are also plenty of other alternatives to major grocery stores, including independent grocers and markets. These are your frontline local businesses that are still operating in order to ensure Malaysians can still get their supply of essential groceries! So, why not lend a hand to support local businesses during this trying time?
Purchasing from these independent markets also means you’ll be getting a more specialised selection of fresh produce for you and your family. Here are some suggestions on independent local farms and markets that are providing online grocery delivery options during the MCO period.
Fydu Fresh is an independent market that provides a large selection of high-quality fresh produce, seafood and poultry, all at an affordable price. All produces are harvested to order and stocks are in abundance. Apart from fresh produce, you will also be able to find other goods such as frozen and dry goods, beverages, and more.
During this MCO, you can now place your orders online via their website and get them delivered to your doorstep. JaGaApp users will also get an exclusive free shipping voucher code that’s valid with a minimum spend!
Lolo Mike’s Eco Farm offers fresh produce that is free from pesticides, fungicide and chemicals. If you prefer locally-sourced organic goods, you’ll be thrilled with the selection of fresh fruits and vegetables this 15-acre eco-farm offers! Besides producing quality fruits, vegetables and herbs with sustainable farming practices, Lolo Mike’s Eco Farm also offers live stocks including free-range chickens, ducks and fish.
Fresh Pick is another local farm that supplies over 50 types of high-quality organic fruits and vegetables with sustainable farming practices. Having a tough time choosing which vegetables to get? Fresh Pick solves this problem by selling organic produce in a set. Select from three types of set boxes which includes various types of fresh vegetables as well as free items!
Browse through the sets on their Facebook page and place your orders the form where payment and delivery details will be included. JaGaApp users can order directly from the app by tapping on the banner.
