Singapore Online Groceries Guide: Allforyou (Sheng Siong), Amazon Fresh, Cold Storage, (NTUC) Fairprice, Giant, Redmart, and Shopee Supermarket

Here is a guide to the online groceries platforms so you do not need to panic and “chiong” to NTUC for Phase 2 (Heightened Alert).


It has been more than a year since Singapore went into Circuit Breaker on 7th April 2020. During Circuit Breaker, the supermarkets were filled with people as we all rushed to get essentials for our stay-home period.

This year, we are back in our homes again for Phase 2 (Heightened Measures). Compared to last year, we are allowed more mobility and access to retail options. Regardless, using online groceries delivery can help to save us some hassle as well as reduce our risk of exposure to COVID-19.

As most of us have started to get used to food delivery, we can do the same for groceries shopping by ordering online. For a reasonable delivery fee, groceries will be delivered to our doorstep. We no longer need to carry heavy groceries bags, squeeze with the crowd, stand in the queue nor walk all over to find a single item.
