The two companies say that following their partnership, it is now more convenient, simpler and safer to purchase over-the-counter medication, personal care, and beauty products through the app. The companies say the partnership is part of their continued efforts to encourage online shopping, and fight COVID-19.
Glovo says it will be delivering from 60 Goodlife Stores in Kenya, in towns where it operates. Customers should be able to order from 45 stores in the first phase of the launch by 30th October 2021. The remaining 15 stores will be covered by 15th November 2021.
Statements from Glovo and Goodlife:
“This partnership with Goodlife has come at an important time for the country. As we continue to follow Government’s guidelines on combating Covid-19. Customers will be able to order their essentials through the Glovo app from the comfort of their homes.” said Priscilla Muhiu, General Manager at Glovo Kenya.
“Online shopping is increasingly becoming second nature in Kenya, primarily for the convenience it brings but also for the wide selection of products it avails to customers. Our aim with these partnerships is to increase our portfolio and offerings in the multicategory space and make sure we are accessible to as many customers as possible,” she added.
David Kasonga, Head of Retail at Goodlife said “This partnership will further improve the way customers access over the counter medication and everyday products. We are trying to remind customers during this time that ‘safe is smart’ and offer them another way to aid this. We want to give customers uncomfortable with mixing with crowds an alternative way to access our diverse range of products. Through this partnership, our users will easily be able to order for products they need.”
