GROCERY: Shopping for family back home now made easier
WITH THE pound dropping against other currencies, Christmas approaching, Donald Trump elected the President of the United States and the UK exiting the EU there’s a lot to be anxious about. If ever there was a time for us to be in control of our finances it is now.
Introducing yard2yardjamaica, which is a low-cost delivery service allowing Jamaica-bound travellers and Jamaicans overseas to shop for groceries for their loved ones and have them delivered anywhere on the island. It is an alternative to sending money to Jamaica and offers a convenient way for overseas-based Jamaicans who support relatives or children on the island.
The idea was born as CEO Stacia Levy was sending money to family in Jamaica for specific purposes, it was however used for something else and so she had to send more money again.
She said: “We are Jamaicans who understand only too well how difficult it can be to get the right things to family at the right time. We also know that sending the money to Jamaica to do the shopping does not always work and this is where we come in - providing a service that does exactly what you want, how you want it”.
She concludes: “Our goal is to provide the best service on the island, helping each other as we were brought up to do.”
Yard2yard Jamaica offers those living abroad the flexibility to support loved ones and still be in control of how much money is spent. It is also much cheaper than sending a barrel and going through the hassle of packing, shipping and going to Kingston or Montego Bay to clear it through customs.
Yard2yard product offerings range from traditional Jamaican fare broken into categories such as groceries, fruit, food and vegitable, household items, meat and special occasions where Jamaicans living abroad can purchase anything from cornmeal to gift baskets.
