Supermarket company Organic Garage (OG) has announced an exciting partnership with Chile-based grocery delivery app Cornershop.

The agreement, which is set to go live on January 29th 2020, will combine the best of both companies. Customers will be able to use Cornershop’s digital app and website to order the delivery of groceries from Organic Garage’s retail locations.

This will be Cornershop’s second collaboration with a grocery partner in Canada, after their first dalliance with retail giant Walmart. A majority stake in Cornershop was also recently acquired by rideshare company Uber.

Under their data sharing agreement, prices on the Cornershop platform will reflect Organic Garage’s regularly priced merchandise. As a Cornershop partner, Organic Garage will offer its customers a significantly reduced service fee, in comparison to non-partner companies.

The data sharing agreement for retail pricing is only the first step. Cornershop plans to put product availability information on the app at a later date.

Organic Garage also has plans for the future, with an automatic replenishment system for retail stores on its way.

Matt Lurie, CEO of Organic Garage, spoke positively about the collaboration. “After extensively researching what other grocery retailers are doing for online sales, and the possibility of developing an in-house application, we feel that the best and most economical route is to utilise a third-party platform like Cornershop.”

Organic Garage’s share price remains unchanged, with shares trading at $0.12 apiece.
