Get what you need, when you need!
Our life is organised online these days, from networking and travel, to banking and shopping, there really isn’t much we can’t do in the palm of our hands. So naturally, when we heard about honestbee, Asia’s leading online grocery concierge service, we were intrigued to find out more.
Grocery shopping in Hong Kong usually turns out to be quite expensive and a tad demoralising (we end up going to about four different stores to find all the ingredients for one meal!) so finding the solution in one easy-to-use website pretty much made our week. So much so, we just had to share the love to help you save those precious hours spent running between various supermarkets around town!
Who is honestbee?
Inspired by the desire to create convenience for the time-poor, honestbee has evolved into Asia’s leading online grocery concierge service for all your household and grocery needs. Offering over 10,000 products across a pool of stores, from big supermarkets such as Fusion and Great, to premium boutiques such as The Butchers Club, Craftissimo, Anything But Salads, Mr Simms Sweet Shop and The Fresh Grower. Users can shop from all stores in the same purchase, and can choose a personalised one-hour delivery window. After you’ve placed your order via the website or app, their ‘shopper bees’ handpick your groceries one-hour before your desired delivery time to ensure quality and freshness. Honestbee then hand-delivers your order to your designated address within your chosen timeframe. Simple and easy – the two words we love to hear!
Why choose honestbee?
Firstly, honestbee hand-picks the freshest ingredients and secondly, they do all the running around for us! We’re all about saving time, so anything that can guarantee the best groceries and save us from trawling around the city after a long day at work is a winner in our books. On average, honestbee estimates they can save all us hard-working Hong Kongers around 3 – 4 hours per week… think about what you could do with those extra 3 – 4 hours girls! Get that much needed mani, book in that yoga class you’ve meant to do for over a month, schedule that long overdue catch up with your bestie. We’re sold. It’s so hard to find everything we need in one shop here in HK, so having a website that has all of our fave shops on one platform makes life so much easier!
How much does it cost?
honestbee currently charges a $25 concierge fee and have a minimum order of $250 (or a $60 delivery fee is applied).
