Attention all tech-lovers: the future is now. While we’ve all likely grocery shopped online during the past year and a half, one grocery delivery company is taking it to the next level. It was just announced today that INABUGGY has launched its 3D virtual grocery shopping portal at Toronto foodie destination, St. Lawrence Market. This new technology means that customers can virtually shop in the world-famous market from home.
“After the success of our virtual shopping portal – piloted with McEwan Don Mills this year – providing St. Lawrence Market shoppers and visitors with such unique shopping experience was a natural next step in our partnership with the renowned market,” said Akram Hasanov, INABUGGY’S Canadian Director of Growth and Strategy. “COVID-19 restrictions have impacted the ways that many people shop for their food over the past year and a half. INABUGGY’s vision is that the 3D virtual space will give customers a new way to access their favourite St. Lawrence Market vendors when they aren’t able to visit in person.”
INABUGGY’s personal shoppers will hand pick and pack orders to ensure the quality and freshness of the items from St. Lawrence Market, that are delivered to the customer’s doorstep in as little as one hour. Through the platform, folks can now virtually explore the market and shop from its 30 vendors with the opportunity to see close-up views of the produce, meats, fish, grains, baked goods, dairy products and all other items that the St. Lawrence Market is known for.
You will no longer have to hope that the vendor has what you’re looking for. This development means that you can see exactly what’s available, and lessen the number of annoying substitutions that you’re often surprised with when your order arrives.
“Working with INABUGGY this year has been instrumental in helping the Market and our vendors best serve our customers and respond to shifts in food retail. A part of shopping at the Market has always been the in-person experience, seeing the vibrant colours, historic setting and amazing products. We are excited to be able to take some of the Market’s magic online with this new virtual experience, allowing more people to access Market vendors in new ways,” said St. Lawrence Market’s spokesperson, Samantha Wiles.
