WALNUT, Calif., April 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Amid the coronavirus pandemic Island Pacific has made the health and safety of its customers, employees, and community its top priority. Island Pacific Supermarket has launched its "Stay Home, Stay Safe" Campaign by becoming the first Filipino Supermarket chain to provide online shopping with same day grocery delivery in the United States.
By shopping at Island Pacific Online everything that you can find in an Island Pacific Supermarket will be available at your fingertips. You will be able to shop a wide array of groceries, fruits, vegetables, and prepared foods Island Pacific is known for. Our full-service meat and seafood department will also be available online where you can request your meat and seafood prepared just the way you want it! Even free fish frying is available in Island Pacific Online Grocery. With this amazing service you can order ahead and skip the long lines in the supermarket.
When you shop at Island Pacific Online you will have your own personal shopper that are experts in picking the best meat, seafood, and produce for your household. All throughout the shopping process your shopper will be connected with you from the time you place the order, while your order is being picked, and when your order is being delivered. We have also created contactless delivery option to promote social distancing and curtail the spread of the virus - groceries can be left at your door saving you from making a trip to the supermarket. In the spirit of our "Stay Home, Stay Safe" Campaign, we are proud to declare that you no longer need to go to an Island Pacific since Island Pacific is now available in your home.
What deters some members of our community from shopping online are the high cost of service fees which can run up to 5% of total receipt and the high cost of delivery fees. Island Pacific Founder, Nino Jeff Lim, has always emphasized the importance of serving the community before any profit objectives. In this spirit, during the duration of the company's "Stay Home, Stay Safe" campaign Island Pacific will be waiving all service fees when customers enter promo code "BAYANIHAN" before checking out. The word "bayanihan" refers to the Filipino Culture emphasizing the importance of communal unity to achieve a common goal. Island Pacific is also constantly exploring ways to lower the delivery cost charged by 3rd party providers. We have recently engaged Postmates since they have the largest network and have the most competitive delivery rates to support our deliveries.
Please tag @islandpacificmarket so that Island Pacific can share all your experiences and how communities are staying home and staying safe! We are all in this together, in the spirit of #bayanihan, let us show the indomitable resiliency of our people especially in times of crisis.
