Nigeria’s online food ordering website, Jumia Food has launched the Jumia Party, a new category on Jumia Food website/app which allows customers to order their favourite alcoholic beverages and get them delivered within barely 60 minutes. The service, which offers free delivery on orders above N10,000, is currently available only in Lekki, Ikoyi and Victoria Island, Lagos, South West Nigeria.
Managing Director of Jumia Food Nigeria, Olamide Bada who made this know in Lagos described the new category as a faster, cheaper and easier channel of buying alcoholic beverages and getting them delivered in an hour’s time.
According to her, Jumia Food has gone into partnership with Pernod Ricard to retail all its product lines such as Absolut Vodka, Martell Blue Swift, Jameson, Chivas Regal, The Glenlivet, Seagram and many more adding that Pernod Ricard is a French producer of distilled beverages that also owns a wide variety of international beverage brands.
“We are absolutely excited about our partnership with Pernod Ricard. This provides us an opportunity to cater to our customers’ needs, especially those who wouldn’t have the time to buy directly from offline retail shops.
Jumia Party is a faster and cheaper alternative for them to order and get their favourite drinks delivered in no time. This partnership has been successfully operational in other African countries, such as Kenya; there’s no doubt that the Nigerian market will be excited about this new category on Jumia Food,” said Bada.
She that to place an order on Jumia Party, you are simply required to login and confirm the legal drinking age of 18 years; select preferred products; add the purchases to the cart; and confirm delivery location on checkout and that users have the option of paying cash or via mobile money payment service.
Bada said Jumia Party is also giving customers offers on selected brands and surprise gifts during the festive season.
While commenting on the new concept, Joy Uzuegbu, Head of Marketing for Jumia Food Nigeria, said “The last thing you want is to run out of drinks while you are at a party – whether planning or attending. Nigerians can now worry less about this because of Jumia party. The best part being that you can have drinks delivered to your doorstep within the hour! True convenience.”
Bada said lovers of alcoholic beverages should get ready for amazing and exclusive deals and merchandise on select products purchased on the Jumia Food website during the Jumia Black Friday festival – slated for November 13 through December 13, 2017.
