In this day and age, with COVID variants still a health and safety concern, even essential goods shopping have had to pivot, and provide new options and possibilities for the concerned consumer. Call it foresight, call it tweaking for the future that arrived sooner than intended; but when Puregold launched their Puregold Mobile app in January of 2020, it turned out to be perfect timing. As a result, the app was fully operational and optimized when the pandemic and ECQ struck us all in March of that year.
Puregold calls their app SALLY, as in your shopping ally, or as they Filipinized the descriptor, your shopping ‘alalay’. And SALLY is your free Puregold grocery shopping app that’s available on the Google Play Store (for Android users), and on the Apple App Store (for iOS users). As such, it doesn’t discriminate, and is available across a broad spectrum of smartphone users. It’s grown in leaps and bounds, such that over 830,000 happy users regularly avail of the app, making it the #17 most subscribed grocery app in the Philippines.
Naturally, it’s primary purpose is to make grocery shopping a safer, faster, and more convenient activity for its customers. It’s easy to use, as shoppers merely scan the barcode of the products they want to purchase, or use the SEARCH bar if they know which specific products they’re after. You add to your virtual cart, then simply pay for the products via options of credit card, debit card, GCash,GCredit, P-wallet, or even COD or Cash on Delivery.
Customers can opt to get their groceries through store pick-up or via delivery. And there are Express Delivery options in selected areas such as Manila, Pasay, Makati, Paranaque, and Caloocan. These deliveries can be done within the customer’s preferred schedule – ensuring that it happens when there’s someone home to receive the groceries.
And this Puregold app comes with great surprises and attractive deals; from free shipping, free Viu subscriptions, discount vouchers, and flash deals – quite often, essential items being sold for P1.00 for a limited time. In such a short time, the Puregold has proven to be a most valuable ally – living up to its name in more ways than one. SALLY is truly golden!
