HCM CITY — The Saigon Union of Trading Co-operatives on Tuesday signed an agreement with Grab Company Limited to offer consumers new experiences on the technology platform ranging from shopping and mobile payment to delivery.
Under the agreement, delivery service GrabExpress and food delivery service GrabFood will be available for delivery from all Co.opmart and Co.opXtra supermarkets in HCM City from the end of this year.
They will be expanded nation-wide next year.
Moca wallet available on the Grab app will be accepted across Saigon Co.op's retail system comprising Co.opmart, Co.opXtra, Co.op Food, Co.op Smiles, and Cheers.
