In the time of increasing confirmed COVID-19 cases in the Philippines, and the sudden hot and humid weather, checking off grocery shopping on your to-do list can be a daunting task. Not to worry, though: Online groceries still exist post-Honestbee. Meet MetroMart.
MetroMart is an online shopping platform that can deliver your groceries to your doorstep within 90 minutes or within the day. Depending on your location, MetroMart can deliver groceries from Robinsons Supermarket, S&R Membership Shopping, Rustan's Marketplace, Shopewise, and Farmer's Market. You also have the choice of shopping from specialty groceries like Deli for Italian gourmet products, Assi Fresh Plaza for Korean grocery items, and Andrei's Gourmet Food for fresh seafood.
MetroMart made Pinkie's Farm available on their platform for you dairy needs (also, if you want to support local!), FamilyMart if you need a midnight snack while pulling an all-nighter, Pan De Manila for freshly-baked bread, and Cupcakes by Sonja if you need something sweet to cheer you up.
Besides grocery shopping, MetroMart also has what they call MetroTable where you can reserve seats from restaurants with discounts. You can score 10% to 50% off if you dine in during a specific time of the day. A few of the restaurants available on MetroTable are Wendy's, Crying Tiger, Rambla, Brothers Burger, Kite Kebab Bar, The Belle & Dragon, and The Pantry at Dusit Thani. Do take time to read the conditions per restaurant because they will tell you the specifications of the discounts, like if the promo is valid for dine-in transactions only.
