Thank you @Patel

So, they won’t stock any inventory? they just connect us with the local offline shops? So, their business model is somewhat close to zomato?

if a wrong product is delivered do they still give 50 percent extra on returning it

I don’t think people know who to tag. I nominated you for the SME badge in order to properly highlight your expertise with Grofers. http://www.desidime.com/forums/dost-and-dimes/t...

The admins have done grave injustice and wasted our time by asking for nominations for custom badges and then failing to give those badges despite multiple reminders.

Yes. Presently, they are just a logistics company. They source the products from local shops and deliver them to the customers within 1-2 hours. But they will move to the warehouse model used by BigBasket in the future.

They have moved to the warehouse model by forming the 90 mins retail private limited company. Right now they source the product from their central warehouse, have reduced their delivery staff, resulting in non fulfillment of their 90 mins policy most of the times. They still have the grocery stores. They source rhe products from the store the customer buys them from. Value store and freshbury are under the invoice of their warehouse 90 min retail. Also this warehouse have resulted into discounts and Bogo offers from them lately. Past 2 months they have been having sales on the last 3 days of the month. Their partnership with reliance retail has been strengthend as they also participate in the grofers sales. swot a bit later. I wish I stayed in gurgaon would have loved to work at grofers if given an opportunity.

Strengths
- Faster Deliveries than some of the other competitors
- Central Warehouse /Nodes structure resulting in economies of sale
- Highty Integrated Technology for their delivery chain .Delivery boys have app
- Central Call Centre based in Gurgaon and major operations Centralized Operations from Gurgaon ( though operations manager are posted in cities as well)
- Frequent 10 % to 15% discounts combined with payment gateway cashbacks leading to dependenc/habit of their service ( I have been one of the oldest users on DD since I first discovered Grofers through Desidime through their Unvalentine Offer which was on 14th Feb 2015 )
-No Expenditure for owning vans , trucks and refrigrated motor vehicles since deliveries are through delivery boy who are given bike allowance
-Catering to the working class , professionals and youth which form a majority of the
- Operating only on app reducing the cross platform development costs and on the go ordering and accessable to masses in urban India
-Wide range of products apart from grocery improving their margins and making lot of local produce/stores available to customers . Inshort improving customer choice
- No questions asked return policy and replacement of products

Weaknesses
- Frequent Discounts and offers denting their profit margins and operating margins
- Dependance on Mom and Pop stores for grocery is still not removed completely. This again dents their margin
- Creating multiple smaller substations/node/warehouse rather than only a single huge warehouse reduces in increased costs

Yes, some stuff going wrong totally from past few months but

Its upto them and like salman khan says in Bigboss "Do whatever you wants to do, man! "

One thing i learned from here is " if you have problem with system, then don’t participate. It’s upto your wish & nobody forcing you to be participant https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_smile.gif "

Just chill chill , just chill https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_biggrin.gif

hey Hi bhai..
.
oh so you merely waiting for the joining dates now ehh..
then there is nothing much to mull over.
.
I didn’t already check, but would try to speak with Bhabhi.
.
just remembered, his real name is Parth.
Like i said, i only met him once, that too when my cousin and bhabhi introduced us over in a family get together.
.
but if he is in India, then I’d surely try to get an update of how things are.
i remember he hadn’t joined Grofers back then, but was about to.
i think the Grofers promoter guy is an alumni and fellow hockey player from his IIT days http://www.google.com/search?q=parth+maheshwari...
.
I myself never used all these app based stuff so i have peripheral idea only, sorry.
just realised https://cdn0.desidime.com/attachments/photos/296861/medium/3188317facepalm.gif?1480981253 i only had his Kota and Seawoods (New Bombay) number/s; which i never bothered to check/update later.

.
as for .ca email , nope I am very much in India itself.
i tend to use pastebin.ca , mail.yahoo.com/?.intl=ca etcetera ever since..
Canada kahani some other time. its an old story.
