Great deals from this local delivery app – Manila Bulletin


Because it’s the second anniversary of pick.a.roo

This August is a big milestone for pick.a.roo as it celebrates its second year, with lots of good news to share. Set up by co-founders Kevin L. Tan and Crystal Gonzalez in 2022 during the pandemic, it was a feat in itself to provide a solution to the many problems Filipinos were facing at that time. “In addition to providing a top-notch delivery service, we have made sure to make pick.a.roo an avenue that can support the local economy and help improve the lives of Filipinos by creating more jobs, particular thanks to our growing base of passengers and buyers,” explains Kévin.

The duo also agreed that their vision for the app was to become an all-in-one, on-demand, premium delivery app. And they’ve done it successfully, with over 700,000 users, but there are more reasons to download and keep the app. Here are a few.

  1. COOP and Central Market by Landers Superstore are the latest partners, with COOP promising 99% stock availability for those who book through the app.
  2. Look for their buy-1-get-1 and buy-2-get-a-freebie offers, free upgrades, cash back and discounts for credit card purchases and special sales
  3. P2 delivery costs on certain days and certain brands

With over 4,000 stores curated by the team, one can access different categories all at once, and even pay in one click! Their center-in-one delivery allows customers to order from different stores in the same mall (Uptown Mall, Power Plant Mall, The Podium, Glorietta, Greenhills, SM Megamall, Eastwood Mall, etc.). Other stores on the list include Landmark, Shopwise, SNR, The Marketplace, and Robinsons Supermarket, as well as restaurants such as Mary Grace, Scout’s Honor, Cibo, Single Origin, Tim Ho Wan, and Din Tai Fung, and even specialty stores like Ace Hardware, True. Value, Baby Company, Executive Optical, Ogalala, Pet Lovers Centre. It really is a one stop shop.

“One of our goals is to meet the needs of PICK.A.ROO users, whoever they are and wherever they are. That’s why we’re constantly updating our portfolio of brands to cover not only the purchase and delivery of food and groceries, but also brands for home improvement, pet care , the needs of moms and babies, and much more. With PICK.A.ROO, we want to give Filipinos even more options for convenient, app-based shopping and delivery, especially during the pandemic and beyond,” says Kevin.

Users abroad can also purchase. Imagine you are on a business trip and need to order groceries for the family or buy a present for someone’s birthday, now you can do it even if you are away from home.

“We’re constantly rolling out features unique to our app, all with the goal of making our customers’ shopping experience that much easier, more convenient, and maybe even something they can hope to do. We’re considering pick .a.roo as a Filipino unicorn startup that every Filipino can be proud of. To be able to do that, we are always working very hard to make pick.a.roo one of the best, if not the best, Filipino apps,” says Crystal.
