Online grocery shopping is very much time convenient and thats the best thing about it. Sit back relaxed at your home and get the job done in few clicks. All orders above Rs. 1000 are shipped free of cost. Orders below Rs. 1000 are charged Rs. 20 as shipping fee. They also have apps developed for smartphones which make the shopping even more easier.

The groceries from fresh vegetables to meat are all well packed and delivered. The team makes sure the product supplied is always fresh. Bread and Dairy products are always within the expiry date.

Nice website without any delay in loading of pages. It also has facility to search products, add items to cart to buy. Website is neat, without cluttering of ads. The catalog of products is very neat and easier to navigate through.
