Have you been in a situation wherein you need to buy some ingredients that are lacking in your recipe? Want to buy grocery things for the week’s stock but can’t find time to do that? You have the time to shop for food items but the reality of horror traffic and parking dilemma prevents you to go outside the house, or you simply just feel lazy to go to supermarkets and want to lie in bed the whole day this weekend? If that’s so, now you can grocery shop right at the comfort of your home with your smartphone.
Download the Easy Grocery app from Google Play or App Store, sign-up and you’re good to on-line shop for your household needs. What’s more? You can monitor the progress of your order in real-time. Easy Grocery runners and riders are on stand-by to get your orders and will even ask or offer you alternative products if your order is not available in your preferred grocery store. Isn’t that great?
Easy Grocery, grocery made easy!
Easy Grocery: A novel and trouble-free way to grocery shopping
Great news – you can now do your groceries online, and in the comfort of your own home!
Imagine foregoing the hassle of physically going to the grocery, dealing with traffic and parking
woes, dealing with a crowded supermarket and longer lines at the cashier.
This is made possible by Easy Grocery, the latest mobile app which allows consumers to
purchase their grocery items from the app and have them delivered to their preferred address
within 60 minutes committed time. The app works for both iOS and Android phones and is now
available for download from the App Store and Google Play.
The launch of EasyGrocery comes at a time when more and more Pinoy shoppers are putting
premium value for convenience. The results of the annual Nielsen Shopper Trends report from
2015 to 2017 showed a common theme on the shopping habits of Filipinos. While income and
purchasing power remains on the upswing, what remains a reality is that the consumers’ time is
now a highly-priced commodity. Hence, products and services that are convenient, trustworthy
and hassle-free will always appeal to busy Filipinos.
The proliferation of online shopping in the Philippines has significantly altered the way Filipino
consumers approach shopping. In 2015, there are already 26.01 million Filipino eCommerce
users, majority of which come from the middle class. Topping their list of purchase are
electronic goods, clothes and even furniture.
Therefore, it is surprising that in spite the proliferation of online shopping sites and apps, one
still has yet to buy their groceries on foot and in store. This may be the reason why another
earlier Shopper Trends survey showed that Filipinos are spending less during grocery shopping
but spending more in convenience stores.
Grocery Shopping for the changing times
EasyGrocery aims to cater to the average Filipinos who find grocery shopping a daunting but
necessary task: it can be the average office worker who spends a minimum of 8 hours in the
office, excluding overtime; it can be the harried mother trying to balance taking care of the kids
and still do house chores; or it can be OFWs who want to be more hands-on on their family’s
“We currently live in a fast-paced lifestyle where convenience and time-savings are the public’s
priority requirement in their day-to-day activities. It is from this reality that the idea by which
EasyGrocery was conceptualized.”, said EasyGrocery’s President & CEO Eugene Leoncio.
Whatever the case may be, this latest mobile app delivers the hassle-free and convenient way
of getting the week’s basic necessities from the store to the customer’s home, with just a few
To appeal to the discerning market, EasyGrocery puts prime value in winning the trust of their
users by putting their own brand of customer service in place:
- A fast and easy ordering system designed exclusively for the app
- Trained Runners who will personally pick-up the groceries as soon as orders are
- GPS mobile app tracker for their riders which allows customers to track the driver’s
location with ETA
- A proactive notification system which allows customers to see if items/orders are
already in process and see their current status
EasyGrocery provides a variety of online grocery shopping options as it makes it possible to
purchase the orders in some of the country’s biggest supermarket chains. What’s best,
groceries will come from the stores nearest to the customers in order to meet delivery time.
Users have the option of paying Cash On Delivery (COD), credit card and points payment and
soon, payments can also be made via Bayad Centers, over the counter, online banking,
convenience stores and mobile payment facilities.
And since EasyGrocery only charges a flat rate of 100 pesos for the service fee per order and
another 100 pesos for the delivery fee; it is still more affordable compared to commuting and
then dealing with the unnecessary expenses of grocery shopping!
EasyGrocery is now available in its three pilot areas of Makati, Parañaque and Taguig, and
hopes to add more cities in the coming months.

Da Nang Vietnam, August 6, 2017 – This year’s Da Nang International Marathon was successfully concluded this morning in Danang, Vietnam with six Filipino runners, representing Team 7-Eleven Philippines, taking podium spots in the full marathon and half-marathon races .
Lany Cardona of Pangasinan cruised through the 42km race to land as the champion of the women’s division, finishing the course in 03:27:26 while Rafael Pescos of Cebu finished second in the men’s division with a finish time of 02:40:06. Richard Salano, a member of the Philippine Army secured the third spot in the podium of the 21km race with a finish time of 1:20:36 while the trio of Jho-An Banayag-Villarma (01:31:53), Nhe-Ann Barcena (01:37:08) and Ruffa Sorongon (01:37:38) swept the first, second and third spots of the 21km women’s category.
Meanwhile, Lizane Abella (4:20:19) and Azlan Pagay (3:02:06) took the Top 1 honors in their respective age group for the 42km and Kennechie Lorbes (1:49:10) took Top 5 for his Age Group in the 21km race.
“Masaya kami kasi ang 7-Eleven ay walang sawa na pinadadala kami sa ganitong international race.” said Lany Cardona who together with Rafael Pescos were given a slot to race in the Shonan International Marathon happening on December in Kanagawa, Japan with all expenses paid, as part of their prize for winning in the 42km category of this race.
Nine Filipino runners participated in this morning’s race, four of them in the full marathon while five in the half-marathon – a fulfillment of the commitment given by Philippine Seven Corporation (7-Eleven Philippines) to the top 3 (male and female) marathon and full marathon winners of the 7-Eleven Run that was held in the Filinvest City, Alabang last February.
According to Project Head Ms. Michelle Saludes, “We at 7-Eleven want to give Filipino runners not part of the Philippine Team the opportunity to showcase their abilities and be recognized in an international competition.”
Local and foreign participants coming from 50 countries, competed in the Da Nang International Marathon 2017 where the route brought the experience of running through Da Nang’s beautiful coastline passing the bridges across the poetic Han’s river in the middle of the city during sunrise.
This is the fifth year that 7-Eleven Philippines has brought Filipino runners to an international race giving them full support from taking care of all expenses, pocket money and with the help of sponsor Asics Tiger, a complete race suit.
“We will continue to encourage runners who aspire to represent the country in an international competition through the 7-Eleven Run Series which we are planning to expand by having another race in Cebu before the year ends and which will serve as a qualifying race to the 7-Eleven Run happening in Manila next year.” shared Mr. Jose Ang Jr., General Merchandise Division Head.
The participation of Filipino runners was made possible through the effort of Philippine Seven Corporation together with the support of sponsors Safeguard, Selecta Ice Cream, Pocari Sweat, Del Monte, Nature’s Spring, Summit Water, Dole Pineapple, Powerade, Solar Sports, CNN Philippines, Skyway, Filinvest and Asics.
