There’s a new app in town and it’s not just another convenient way to get groceries delivered to our door but it may just be the fastest yet. TIGGY has just launched in our city and it aims to provide free 15 minute delivery of fresh produce, groceries, and healthcare items, including Health Canada-approved rapid COVID antigen tests. Yes, you read that right!
TIGGY opens its first micro fulfillment centre, in highly populated areas at Queen & Richmond Streets with another opening at St Clair Ave. W. & Dufferin St. on Feb. 7. Tiggy will deliver to customers living within a 2 mile radius of each location.
TIGGY’s expansion into Ontario follows its launch last fall in Vancouver, where it has four micro fulfillment centres with another opening in Burnaby in March. Throughout 2022, they will continue to open micro fulfillment centres across the GTA.
So, what can you get?
There are nearly 2000 items currently available in categories include Breakfast, Bakery, Fruit & Berries, Healthy Alternatives including gluten free, dairy free, keto and organic options, Dairy, Seafood, Meat, Sweets, Snacks, Personal & Baby Care and Pets.
Also found are Canadian brands such as Crafty Ramen DIY meal kits (we’ve tried these and they are yummy!), Blackstar coffee, Earth’s Own non-dairy milk, Clever mocktails, Happy Planet smoothies & juices, Heritage Cattle Co. locally raised, 100% grass fed beef, Hitch Hiker lemonades, Love Child Organics baby food, MadeGood organic nut free snacks, Keto Scream ice cream, Silver Hills organic whole grain bread, Tality Kombucha organic craft kombucha, and more.
TIGGY also currently offers Rapid Response COVID-19 Antigen Tests (available in a 5-pack) — competitively priced and subject to change. Limit, 1 box per customer, while supplies last.
How the app works:
TIGGY’s proprietary technology was created by developers with extensive experience in Europe’s already-established ultrafast delivery space. The result is an app, and a sophisticated back-end inventory and procurement system that’s faster than web-based platforms most Canadian grocery delivery companies are currently using. Customers can expect an easy to navigate shopping experience.
And what’s the catch?
We’re told there are no hidden fees or surprises. Unlike some other grocery delivery apps, TIGGY does not charge a fee for delivery, markup costs of grocery items, or require a subscription. Costs of items are on par with grocery store prices. At just $10, their minimum order requirement can be met by purchasing one or two items.
