Q. So what is with selling groceries online?/ why should I buy groceries online?
Well it's simple: ‘the savings’! LocalBanya.com shoppers can expect the best prices in Mumbai on big brand grocery items because when we sell online, we can sell stuff cheaper. With fewer overheads, no parking lots or aisle shelves and store floors to pay for, we can concentrate on lower prices for you. At LocalBanya.com, you can expect to save on your regular grocery bill, with savings of up to 40% off on some items. Not only that, but buying groceries online takes away the drive to the store, battling for a car park, waiting at the checkouts and dragging your bulky bags home, free home delivery - no matter where in Mumbai you live!. Plus you only pay once you receive your order- Why go anywhere else?
Q. Well, it sounds pretty good, how is it that you can offer discounted prices all round the year and other big supermarkets can’t?
It's simple. Our buyers are masters of seduction; we tell our suppliers that all our customers will turn up in their driveway if they don't give us a better-than-amazing deal on their products - it's a pretty compelling proposition. Needless to say, they comply. But in reality, our ability to source amazing deals on everyday groceries probably has something to do with the fact that we order huge amounts, have fast turnover, offer suppliers fast payment and have low overheads.
Q. What kind of tempting products do you sell?
We mainly offer big name brands which are known and trusted and can be found in your local supermarket. Shoppers can expect everything from packaged foods like pasta, snacks, sweets and staples to household necessities such as cleaning products, soaps and detergents. There are also personal hygiene products such as toothpaste and nappies, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals... you name it and we have it. More than 7000 products are on offer, refreshed and increased each shopping day.
