Local retailer Tuskys looks out for shoppers announcing new delivery service

Tuskys is looking out for its customers in the wake of COVID-19.

The local retailer has shared a circular announcing a new partnership with courier service Sendy to provide shoppers with door to door delivery service to decrease floor traffic in their various outlets.The announcement reads, “we are pleased to announce to you the partnership between the company and leading logistics partner Sendy to help curb the spread of coronavirus in line with government directive. The move will see Tuskys customers make purchases of groceries from the comfort of their homes, and have them delivered to their doorsteps.”

The leading retailer also previously made it clear that panic buying is not encouraged during the encouraged self-quarantine period.

In a post on their official Instagram account Group CEO Dan Githua noted ” As a responsible corporate citizen, we wish to assure the public that the panic is unnecessary. We have engaged with our suppliers and received firm commitments that we will continue to receive the necessary supplies at the standard prices.” He went on to reassure shoppers, ” We therefore wish to dispel any fears that commodity prices soon or worse still, we can run out of essential commodities.”

According to Capital News, Minister of Health banned all public gatherings. Giving a public address after the confirmation of Kenya’s first coronavirus case, Mr Kagwe said “We have suspended all public gatherings, meetings, religious crusades, games and all events that are of a huge public nature. Normal church services can go on, provided they provide hand sanitizers as people go into the worship areas… inter-school events and conferences have been cancelled.”

In a public address on Sunday March 15th, President Uhuru Kenyatta urged the public to avoid public places recommending that non-essential workforce should work from home, also encouraging the citizenry to use cashless modes of payment to stop the spread of the disease.

Kenya has 3 confirmed cases of Coronavirus so far, with the government enforcing precautionary measures to keep the nation health and safe.
