By now, you would know that I am a huge advocate for shopping at Don Don Donki in Japan. So it was no surprise that I attended the grand launch of their first store in Malaysia at Lot 10 and kept revisiting the store at least once a week.
Except the queues got ri-donki-lously (haha) long at one point and all I wanted to buy was jelly for my mom and vege juice for me. But at that point, I had committed to standing in queue for ten minutes and I ain't no quitter. Never did say I was a smart one though.
Thankful Grab just officially announced that it will be partnering up with Donki to serve as their preferred on-demand delivery partner in Southeast Asia. Already, Donki accepts Grabpay as a cashless payment option in store. And now, blessed be, I can conveniently shop and pay for Donki products on the Grab app through GrabMart and GrabPay, and enjoy immediate or scheduled delivery straight to their door.
The Grab x Don Don Donki partnership aims to provide more delightful shopping experiences for consumers through the following initiatives:
- Shop from home on GrabMart: Consumers in Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand can order their favourite Donki products on GrabMart for immediate or scheduled delivery. They can look forward to an extensive catalogue featuring up to 900 SKUs, including snacks, ready-to-eat meals, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, as well as daily essential items across health, beauty and household segments.
- Convenient cashless payments through GrabPay: Donki fans in Malaysia can pay for their offline purchases in Donki retail stores via GrabPay, Grab’s in-app cashless payment service, and receive GrabRewards points for their transactions.
- Joint marketing programmes for a seamless shopping experience: The two companies also plan to explore initiatives to better engage consumers online and offline. For example, Donki can tap on Grab’s Merchant Discovery feature, which will enable them to push promotions to Grab users who are nearby to draw them to their stores.
As DONKI continues its expansion across the region, both companies plan to collaborate on in-market campaigns to further engage Grab users and retail shoppers. Aka more promo codes and deals for us fans of both brands, woohoo!
Now excuse me while I lay out my picnic mat and pretend I am hanami-ing with my sushi set and green tea from Donki, delivered to me by Grab.
Don Don Donki is searchable on Grab via GrabMart.
