Glovo, a leading multi-category app, has established a strategic partnership with Shoprite, Nigeria’s largest supermarket retailer.
This collaboration aims to deliver a straightforward, rapid, and convenient online shopping experience for consumers, encompassing everyday essentials such as fresh meals, fruits, and vegetables, all sourced from Shoprite and available for order on the Glovo platform. Thanks to Glovo’s efficient courier network, products are delivered to customers within an hour of placing an order.
This partnership, inked in May, extends across all Shoprite stores where Glovo operates, including Lagos, Abuja, and Ibadan, with intentions to expand to additional cities in the upcoming months. This development marks a significant transformation in the local commerce industry, further solidifying Glovo’s position in the Nigerian market, just two years after its inception.
Tosin Olukoya, Strategy Manager at Retail Supermarkets Nigeria, emphasized how e-commerce has revolutionized retail, with Shoprite seeking to meet the evolving needs of modern-day customers by simplifying online shopping through Glovo. Olukoya stated, “Shoprite continually strives to provide innovative services that enhance customers’ daily shopping experiences. By leveraging Glovo’s global and local expertise in the quick commerce sector, we anticipate that this partnership will offer a swift and convenient home delivery service, addressing our customers’ needs in the digital age.”
Bunmi Adeleye, Chief Strategy Officer for Retail Supermarkets Nigeria, added that the collaboration with Glovo aligns with Retail Supermarkets Nigeria’s ambition to offer convenience, quality, and exceptional value to both customers and the communities they serve.
Kolawole Adeniyi, Head of Q-commerce for Glovo Nigeria, expressed how this partnership is in harmony with Glovo’s vision of granting easy access to city resources for everyone. He explained, “To realize our vision, we seek partnerships with prominent retailers operating across our active regions. Glovo is experiencing robust growth and has ambitious goals. Our objective is to make grocery shopping faster, smoother, and more convenient than ever for our customers. Our partnership with Shoprite will enable us to achieve this, further expanding our reach across Africa.”
Lamide Akinola, General Manager of Glovo Nigeria, echoed this sentiment by saying, “Our aspiration is to become the go-to multi-category app, enabling our customer base to access Shoprite’s products from anywhere. We believe that this partnership will help us execute our broader strategy of becoming a one-stop destination for all our customers’ delivery needs.”
