This comprehensive list of online shops offering grocery delivery in Hong Kong is for those who have an empty fridge and the closest supermarkets are too far (two blocks away) or are cooped up at home because of COVID-19.
Our list includes everything from the almightly online supermarkets, awesome markets (selling local organic vegetables), an online grandmom-and-pop shop, and a tried-and-tested online shop that lets you choose groceries just for the dishes you want to make and nothing more.
Note: These online grocery shops may have a slightly different delivery policy for different areas in Hong Kong. Most charge an additional fee for delivering to remote areas. Please check before making your purchases.
yuu to me
- Delivery fee: HK$50.00
- Free delivery: for orders over HK$500.00
- Delivery time: 1 hour to 2 days
If you’re living in Hong Kong, you probably would have had the misfortune to hear the mind-numbing “yuu” theme song — or the Cantonese version of “Uptown Girl” — while grocery shopping in a supermarket.
yuu, dubbed the biggest rewards club in town, has over 4 million members. (That’s more than half of the city’s population).
The app-based rewards club lets you earn points and rewards when shopping at any of the brands under DFI Retail Group, including Wellcome, Market Place, 7-Eleven and IKEA.
Now, there is a way to shop at one of the yuu shops without hearing the overly catchy tune — enter yuu to me delivery platform.
The new yuu to me platform, a new function in the app, allows users to order from its supermarkets (Wellcome, Market Place), health and beauty shops (Mannings) and convenience stores (7-Eleven) on the built-in platform.
From our experience, the earliest delivery time is within 24 hours if you place an order before 2 p.m.. Customers in certain areas will have a rapid one-hour delivery option. We tried the rapid delivery option and the ordered items, including a tub of still-frozen ice cream, arrived within 15 minutes.
Its interface still needs some improvement but with plenty of coupons — automatically applied at checkout — it helps you to overlook any shortcomings.
Plus, the products come from your closest online-to-offline shop. That means shortening the travelling distance of your goods and reducing your carbon footprint. There is also less packaging compared to some other delivery sites where every item is individually boxed and wrapped.
The yuu to me platform doesn’t include other brands under the group for now. So if you’d like to order a cake from Maxim’s Cakes or a coffee table from IKEA, it will direct you to those brands’ individual e-commerce platforms.
- Delivery fee: HK$80.00
- Free delivery: for orders over HK$350.00 for VIP members and HK$500.00 for regular members
- Delivery time: Around 3 to 5 days
Working with over 500 vendors from Hong Kong and overseas, HKTVmall might be the best one-stop e-shop for groceries and beyond. That means you can order groceries and a fridge all in one go!
With HKTVmall, some fresh vegetables and fruits are available, but meat and seafood are frozen. It’s especially great for newer items like vegetarian meat and craft beers.
While most supermarkets work with a limited number of brands and small individual stores, which may not offer a whole range of products, HKTVmall’s selection can save you from visiting multiple stores to get what you need.
Prices are competitive and options are plenty. You can compare prices, delivery time and vendor info before making your purchase.
You can also choose to pick up from your closest HKTVmall O2O Shops.
