Update On :09 May 2016
Hoping to save residents the headache of battling traffic, navigating a busy grocery store and juggling multiple shopping bags at once, a new online supermarket and home delivery service has launched in Qatar.
E-commerce site Doha Sooq has teamed up with grocery chain Grand Mart to launch the website, which debuted last month.
In a statement, Mohamed Intiqab Rawoof, manager of the IT group of Grand Mart, said: Ã¢Â€ÂœPeople always shop. It doesnÃ¢Â€Â™t stop. We are here to make their experience better and the online supermarket is designed and implemented to provide a seamless shopping experience.People are changing their buying habits. From retail stores to online shopping carts, itÃ¢Â€Â™s only a matter of time before the online shopping store becomes a popular option among consumers in Qatar.Ã¢Â€Â
Items for sale includes fashion, jewelry, gifts and electronics in addition to fresh and packaged food.Doha Sooq now sells 4,000 items, 475 of which are food goods.This is set to more than double with 2,500 separate food lines in the coming month, a website official told Doha News.
The new site will join a number of other online grocery ordering services that have launched in Qatar in recent years, including eGrab, which started as an app last August, and FreshQatar, which provides online shopping and delivery to select areas inside Doha, although with a minimum order of QR100.
There is also the app Baqaala, currently available on Android, where customers can order groceries from local mini-markets or supermarkets, and get them delivered to their home in 30 minutes, its website says.
