LuLu Hypermarket, the leading retailer in the region, signed a contract with Talabat, the premier home-delivery chain in the GCC, to facilitate the distribution of the hypermarket’s products in Kuwait.
The contract was signed on behalf of LuLu Hypermarket by Director Mohamed Haris, and for Talabat by Badder Al Ghanim Managing Director – kuwait, in the presence of senior officials of the two brands, at the LuLu Hypermarket head office in AlRai on 19 January.
In a statement released on the occasion, LuLu Hypermarket noted that the signing of the contract with Talabat will strengthen our efforts to provide customers with the best shopping experience with high quality products, widest range of choices, and the most competitive prices. The cooperation with Talabat will also further our endeavor to make shopping for LuLu products easy, convenient and accessible to all, from anywhere in Kuwait.
The statement added that digital shopping and e-commerce is a fast growing platform in Kuwait, and more people than ever-before are now turning to online ordering of goods. Online buyers expect delivery of their purchases quickly and efficiently, and to their place of choice.
LuLu Hypermarket already has an online marketplace and delivery service. However, with the growing demand for online deliveries, it has become imperative for the hypermarket to choose a reliable partner to facilitate home-deliveries. Certainly it will be Talabat in Kuwait who is standing in the top most rank in home delivery services.
The statement noted that the deal with Talabat will see more than 17,000 stock keeping units (SKUs) of the hypermarket’s products being made available through the Talabat platform. Moreover, to ensure speed of delivery, seven stores of the hypermarket have been designated specifically to procure products for online delivery, and highly experienced staff have been assigned to product picking services in order to make sure that the products being delivered are as per the order in terms of quality, quantity and value.
The new agreement will see LuLu products being delivered to all parts of the country, with the possible exception of Al-Khiran area; and that, with the launch of five more stores in 2023, the hypermarket would further expand the product range available for home-delivery through the Talabat platform.
The statement concluded by emphasizing that the agreement between LuLu Hypermarket and Talabat would add value to shopping for customers in Kuwait, as it brings together the extraordinary delivery capabilities and wide reach of Talabat, with the exceptional range of quality products and price options of LuLu Hypermarket.
