Muscat: Between the time spent at work during the day, iftar in the evenings, and movement restrictions at night, shopping for groceries to prepare the special meals associated with Ramadan can be a squeeze, particularly with businesses only allowed to operate at 50 percent capacity.
Online stores such as Rafeeq, however, provide a fast, efficient and convenient way for people to get the freshest produce, quality groceries, and favourite foods any time during the day. Oman’s largest online supermarket contains a wide range of items for people to shop for, placing your order through the app or the website from the convenience of your home or office takes only a few minutes.
Range of products
Customers can choose from an extensive range of products, including groceries, fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables, meat, poultry, dairy, ready to eat meals, savouries, sweets, household supplies, electronics, stationery, game cards, office supplies, baked goods, cereals, grains, sauces, jams, beverages, baby food, personal care products, and many more essentials.
“We understand that time is of the essence for people right now,” said Shakir Dadarkar, marketing manager for Rafeeq. “This is why we realise the need to provide quality products, on time, and at affordable prices. As part of these efforts, we have also put up more than 200 items on our Ramadan offers, not to mention free home delivery for offers above OMR5.”
Some 100+ items are available to customers under the Buy 2 Get 1 Free offer, while another 76 are listed under the Buy 1 Get 1 Free offer. More than 100+ items are also available under a special offer, while a further 20 products are currently being sold at discounts of up to 50 percent.
Rafeeq’s efforts to provide good products on time have received positive reviews from customers in Muscat and the surrounding areas. Efforts are underway to expand the online store’s delivery base, and new products are regularly added to its portfolio.
Jibin Jose, who recently made his first delivery from the store, was pleasantly surprised by its quality. “They delivered on time, provided decently packed fresh vegetables, meat, and other products,” he said. “Well done, team Rafeeq, keep it up.”
Sanarab Kazi called the online store a “must-use to buy fresh vegetables and fruits,” owing to the “excellent service and quality,” while Jason Noronha added that they had “quite an easy app from which to select items,” before going on to praise the smooth checkout experience.
Basam Al Kayyali was all praise for the “amazing collection, service, and quality of products,” and Zahra T liked the “excellent service, and wide range of items available.” She added: “The vegetables and fruits are always in perfect condition.”
Reiterating Rafeeq’s commitment to meeting the needs of customers, particularly when they might not have the time go to shopping, Samer Hakim, the online store’s operations manager, said, “We have received plenty of positive feedback from our customers, and we are glad they find convenience from the services we provide.
“Many are using us as an alternative to regular grocery stores during the pandemic, but we are sure online stores and the services they offer will continue to stay afterwards as well,” he added.
