This Is Not Your Usual Online Grocery Shopping App
Check out that minimalist interface, for one.
(SPOT.ph) With most of us staying at home these days, online groceries have become all the rage. No longer do we have to go from aisle to aisle and line up at physical supermarkets, you can get all the food you need delivered right to your doorstep. COOP Grocer is yet another player in the online-grocery scene, where you can get everything from fresh produce to specialty eats with guaranteed next-day delivery.
COOP Grocer comes in the form of a smartphone app that's available for both iOS and Android. Installation is a breeze, and you can register for free.
Boasting a minimalist interface with a forest-green and white color scheme, even just browsing through the app is therapeutic—and that's just for starters.
What especially sets COOP Grocer apart is its wide selection of offerings, which ranges from fresh produce to meats, snacks, beverages, and even over-the-counter medicine. Here, we round up just some of the tasty finds you can order from the app.
You can shop these one-of-a-kind eats from the COOP Grocer app:
