Online shopping has taken over Malaysia in the last decade or so. Now, you can do so much more like buying your groceries online and having them sent right to your doorstep with these delivery services in KL.
As of tomorrow (Wednesday, 18th March 2020), Malaysia will go into the Restricted Movement Order. While not necessarily a full lockdown of the country, travelling in and out of the country is not allowed and everyone is encouraged to practice social distancing. The past few days on social media have been a toxic wasteland, showcasing empty supermarkets.
With more and more people giving in to panic buying, we’re here to tell you to put that pack of toilet paper down. Instead of buying out the supermarket and hoarding food for months, it’s better to buy within your means so the elderly and less fortunate will have a chance to get through this as well. If you’re already set with groceries, be sure to check out these food delivery services that will make your life so much easier.
Thankfully, supermarkets and convenience stores will still be open, which gives everyone a chance at stocking up on supplies. To do so, just head on over to any of these online groceries that provide delivery services. If it doesn’t provide, fret not as there are other third-party apps who will happily help.
