Pick n Pay revealed on Tuesday, that its on-demand delivery app, Pick n Pay asap !, increased sales by 300% for the year to February 2022.

The retail group’s annual financial statements for the 52 weeks ended Feb. 27, 2022, say the revamped app, formerly known as Bottles, has grown strongly since its repositioning and rebranding.

Pick n Pay does not disclose profits from as soon as possible! or even its percentage contribution to the group’s sales in 2022.

Delivery apps like Pick n Pay as fast as possible! and Checkers Sixty60 from Shoprite Group have grown strongly since the abrupt closure of Covid-19 in 2020 made many consumers first think about shopping online or increasing their spending online.

Pick n Pay said it has made “significant improvements” to its mobile app and in-store choice interface to simplify the user experience. This includes improved navigation, order and clearance. This “has led to a significant improvement in the reliability and speed of services, while product availability remains at over 95%.”

Choose and pay as soon as possible! now available in 392 supermarkets and liquor stores.

Amnichannel sentence

The retail giant said on-demand retail is just one element of its omnichannel offering, which includes traditional scheduled delivery, a Click n Collect service and an online apparel offering.

“The combined online offer of the group gave an annual growth of 72.5% in two years. The group believes that online food sales in South Africa will continue to expand, and intends to significantly increase supply and presence in the omnichannel.

For the whole year Pick n Pay increased turnover by 5.2% to 97.9 billion rupees. Proforma total earnings per share rose 23% to 289.64c. – © 2022 NewsCentral Media
