UAE-based homegrown delivery app Yeepeey now offers online ordering and delivery of products from Ansar Gallery, the Ansar Group’s flagship hypermarket in the UAE.
The partnership is part of Yeepeey’s mission to build its portfolio of available grocery stores.
Monish Chandiramani, co-founder and CEO of Yeepeey, said the partnership is the company’s first and is a significant achievement.
Yeepeey started operations in February 2021.
“Being the first partner to go live with Ansar Gallery for grocery delivery is a great milestone for Yeepeey in its first year of operations and we’re extremely thrilled to start and grow this partnership with Ansar Group by taking convenience to our users’ doorstep.”
Yeepeey will provide customers the same discounts and promotions available in stores and will not charge a delivery fee.
At present, the app offers delivery within Dubai but plans to expand its delivery network to Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and the northern emirates, app co-founder Jatin Sharma told The National.
They also aim to enter Saudi Arabia by the third quarter of this year, Mr Sharma said.
The app’s partnership with Ansar Gallery is also part of the Ansar Group’s efforts to keep pace with shifts in consumer behaviour, Said Hamid Mansouri, deputy general manager of the group, said.
“The world has seen a change in consumer habits and the growth in ‘quick’ grocery delivery and as one of the most preferred hypermarkets in the UAE, it was important we extend that service to our customers who may not want to shop in-store but shop online.”
The Doha-based retail group operates 17 retail stores across the UAE, Oman and Bahrain, selling products from 15 countries including France, Brazil, Italy, Thailand, Turkey and India.
The group intends to open two shopping centres every year and places their annual growth rate at 25 per cent.
Their centres receive a minimum yearly footfall of more than 15 million.
