Makro has teamed up with the grocery delivery service OneCart for same-day delivery in Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, and the Western Cape.
OneCart offers personalised shopping from multiple stores with two-hour delivery, at a single delivery fee.
A delivery of around R750 in Makro groceries to an address Sandton will cost you almost R100 extra: R45 in delivery fees plus a “concierge fee” of R52.64.
OneCart’s other partners include Woolworths, Pick n Pay and Pick n Pay Liquor, Food Lovers’ Market, Dis-Chem and Clicks.
OneCart was co-founded in 2016 by CEO Lynton Peters and COO Ariel Navarro, with seed capital of R16 million. Peters says it saw a 500% increase in orders since the start of the national lockdown on March 27th.
The company has since employed 450 new staff, and expanded into new areas including Pretoria North and Joburg South.
