The future of ordering groceries from the comfort of home is here. Sobeys has officially launched Voilà by Sobeys, their new online grocery home delivery platform that brings your favourite fresh, quality foods from their cutting-edge automated warehouse straight to your doorstep.
Catering to all residents in Toronto and surrounding areas, including Mississauga, Vaughan, Brampton, North York, Caledon, Oakville, Scarborough and Etobicoke, Voilà will be expanding to other boroughs in the GTA later this summer.
Voilà will improve your grocery-shopping routine. Customers will be able to shop the same in-store grocery essentials that you’ve come to know and love from Sobeys stores as well as thousands of different food items from beloved brands like Farm Boy. Voilà even has health and wellness products from Well.ca — after all, treating yourself is still on the table!
Because Voilà delivers from a warehouse, it has increased control over freshness and quality, plus better visibility to available products, leading to more reliable deliveries (aka fewer missing items and substitutions).
When you order your groceries through Voilà, you can expect the guaranteed freshness that you find at your own local Sobeys store with the same affordable prices and absolutely no hidden fees. Simply add whatever you’re craving or needing to stock up on to your cart, check out, and choose a one-hour delivery window during a time that’s convenient for you. The best part? They’re offering the most competitive delivery fee in the game at just $7.99 when your order comes to $50 or more.
While online grocery ordering has peaked in popularity in recent times, Sobeys’ delivery system is setting itself apart with its automated Customer Fulfillment Centre (CFC); robots carefully and quickly assemble your order before delivering it to your home by trusted Voilà teammates, resulting in a safe delivery with less handling.
If you’re hesitant about robots picking out your food, think of it this way: It takes the average shopper 50 minutes to do their groceries whereas one of the CFC Robots can do it in under five minutes (all while adhering to ongoing, meticulous sanitation precautions). Talk about safe and efficient!
No need to worry about quality either. To ensure that customers get fresh meat and produce, Voilà by Sobeys works closely with suppliers and rigorously monitors the shelf life of all its products. In other words, if it’s not fresh, it’s free!
