Flipkart has started a brand-new hyperlocal delivery service named Flipkart Quick, which intends to deliver your order within 90-mins. The service will offer a list of over 2000 products and soon digitize local grocery shops, bringing them to sell online.
In the beginning stage, Flipkart Quick will support categories like Grocery, Fresh, Dairy, Meat, Mobiles, Electronics Accessories, Stationery materials, and Home essentials. Shoppers can decide between getting their product delivered within 90-min of ordering or select a 2-hour window according to their comfort. Delivery charges start from Rs. 29, and you can order products between 6 am to midnight. Also read: People are scammed by Fake Flipkart, Amazon Clones
Flipkart Quick will first begin in Bengaluru in select areas, including Whitefield, Panathur, HSR Layout, BTM Layout, Banashankari, KR Puram, and Indira Nagar.
Commenting on the launch, Sandeep Karwa, Vice President, Flipkart, said:
Hyperlocal capabilities can be described simply as building connections between locally available products and consumers in a particular area. This is a great model for India as households of all sizes are already used to their neighbourhood Kirana stores. In fact, Indian families are so comfortable with what we call the ‘hyperlocal context’, that there is a tendency to develop deep, familial ties with vendors, shopkeepers and service providers – now with the convenience of e-commerce.
Today, with Flipkart Quick – our Hyperlocal capability, we have the potential to bring together the whole network of neighbourhood Kirana stores onto our platform with just a click.
