Pick n Pay has launched its first online shopping distribution centre in Gauteng, following the recent opening of its Cape Town centre.
The new distribution centre will improve its online shopping service in Gauteng, it said.
“This distribution centre represents a significant investment in Pick n Pay’s online business, which is one of the fastest-growing divisions in our business, and represents a conviction by the company about the long-term opportunities from online,” said Pick n Pay deputy CEO Richard van Rensburg.
The distribution centre in Gauteng will result in increased availability, selection, and product freshness, with groceries delivered directly to a customer’s home instead of first going through a local store.
The company said it will also launch a new online shopping website and an upgraded version of the Pick n Pay mobile app later this year.
