Cash and carry company Selgros Romania has started selling online following a partnership with online platform MegaMarket.ro. The site is managed by A4K SWED Concept and sells exclusively Selgros products.
Some 11,000 food and non-food products sold by Selgros are available on MegaMarket.ro and their number will go up in the near future, said the company. Orders are placed online and their payment can be done either online or by cash on delivery. Companies can also pay by bank transfer.
Products are later delivered within 24 hours during a time frame selected by the customer. For now the service is available in Bucharest, Otopeni and Corbeanca. In the second quarter of this year, it will also be available in Cluj-Napoca, Timisoara and Brasov and by the end of the year in all the large cities throughout the country, said Pia Krauss, Selgros Cash&Carry Romania.
Selgros Cash&Carry’s announcement comes after in 2013 two important local retailers – Carrefour and Cora – launched online platforms of their own. In July 2013, Carrefour officially launched its online store – carrefour-online.ro and Cora launched in November the first local drive-through service which for now is available in its Lujerului hypermarket in Bucharest.
Selgros Cash&Carry has been operating in Romania since 2001. It has since opened 19 outlets.
