With the new expansion wave, the service is available in six cities
The Carrefour through Bringo fast delivery service continues to expand, covering, as of today, two new cities – Brașov and Constanța. Customers can order through the Bringo app products from Carrefour Market and Market Express stores in their vicinity, with delivery in just 30 minutes and a reduced cost of 9.99 lei per order, an option on top of the standard one, from Carrefour hypermarkets, with delivery in 90 minutes. It is already the third expansion wave for the new service, launched in small areas at the end of August and which is now available in six cities: Bucharest, Iași, Cluj, Timișoara, Brașov and Constanța.
Currently, 43 stores in Carrefour Market and Market Express format support the fast delivery service in these 6 cities, of which 4 are from Brașov (Market Express from 64 Ștefan Baciu Str. and Carrefour Market supermarkets from 18 Crișului Str., 10 Alexandru Vlahuță Blvd. and 62 Nicolae Bălcescu Str.) and 4 from Constanța (Market Express from 4 Albatros Alley and the Carrefour Market supermarkets from 1 Decembrie 1918 Str., No. 10, 2C Cismelei Str. and 1907 Uprising Str., No. 8). In total, over 100 Carrefour stores in all three formats – Hypermarket, Market and Market Express – from 37 cities in the country, are included in the Bringo platform.
“More than anything, today’s customer wants options: for consistent shopping on the weekends, but also for easy and fast shopping to fill their fridge or satisfy their current cravings. Through our omnichannel model, we aim to replicate the experience from the physical environment, where we respond to these needs through our multiformat stores, in the Bringo platform. We therefore continue to expand our 30-minute fast delivery service with Bringo, so that the customer can easily rely on convenience stores and the online, knowing that the products reach him in the shortest time”, said Cătălin Samara, COO & E-commerce Director, Carrefour Romania.
As in the case of customers from Bucharest, Iași, Cluj and Timișoara, those from Brașov and Constanța now have in the Bringo app both the option of a Carrefour hypermarket, with traditional delivery in 90 minutes and for a standard cost of 19.99 lei, as well as the new options of supermarkets and local express markets, with fast delivery, in just 30 minutes, in exchange for a reduced cost. Moreover, the first order is free for new users, if they enter the code “bunvenit1” in the Bringo app, for orders over 99 lei.
The 30-minute fast delivery offers access to over 90% of the assortment of the nearby store, and all the products are available at the same price as the one in the physical stores, in the context in which Bringo does not practice commercial surcharge.
“Bringo is a success story, developed in Romania and exported to other countries. Whether they are on the run or want to focus on activities that matter to them, customers know they can turn to Bringo and its personal shoppers, who shop for them, just as they would themselves. Through the strong partnership with Carrefour, we are developing delivery services, including more and more convenience stores and more and more cities on the fast delivery map “, added Ioana Ilie Dobre, General Manager, Bringo.
Through the Bringo app, available for free in the App Store and Google Play, shoppers can choose Carrefour products without a commercial surcharge. Carrefour Romania is Bringo’s largest partner, offering customers a range of over 50,000 products and being active in the app with all hypermarket and supermarket or express stores. The purchases are made by a personal shopper who communicates in real time with the customer, the long-distance shopping experience being significantly improved.
