“Customers in Bangkok, Pattaya and Chiang Mai have responded positively to the Tesco Lotus Online Shopping service we started a year ago,” said Tesco Lotus Marketing Director Wanna Swuddigul.
“They have told us Tesco Lotus Online Shopping service makes their lives more convenient and saves them time and money on travel.”
With over 20,000 product lines on offer, Tesco Lotus remains the only retailer in the country offering online ordering and delivery of fresh food.
For deliveries it uses specially designed vans with separate compartments for frozen products, chilled products and non-perishable groceries for delivery to customers’ doorsteps.
After choosing products online, the customer can pick one of six delivery timeslots between 10 am and 10 pm, seven days a week.
For those worried about getting old stock delivered to them, Ms Wanna stressed that the online delivery team “seek out the freshest produce and longest expiry dates just as our customers would do.”
Payment is made online with Visa Debit, Electron or credit cards, or with MasterCard.
