Walnut, CA /PRNewswire/ - Island Pacific Supermarket with locations in California and Nevada, is the first Filipino supermarket chain to offer online shopping with same day grocery delivery in the United States.
"Because of COVID-19 and the drive to keep our communities safe at home, the Island Pacific team adaptively offered the ecommerce platform less than a month after the quarantine orders went into effect because of the unyielding efforts of our founder Nino 'Jeff' Lim. Despite the many challenges in the first few weeks of the pandemic, the Island Pacific company also offered a rice reservation system so that people could reserve online and pick up in store to mitigate long lines and implement social distancing," says Giselle Tongi- Walters, newly assigned director of communications and community partnerships of Island Pacific.
On June 12, 2020, in time for Philippine Independence Day, the company also released an updated version of the popular Island Pacific app to make customer's online shopping experience even better. Now, with the updated Island Pacific app, customers will now be notified on their mobile phone when their orders are ready. Customers can then notify the store when they are on the way for their curbside pick-up. Each Island Pacific location has designated spaces for curbside pickup so customers can conveniently wait in their car while their personal shopper load their groceries in their car. With the updated Island Pacific app, curbside pick-up is now even more convenient and user friendly. To download the app, go to the Apple store or Google play for Android.
