Online grocery delivery in Malaysia


With the Movement Control Order recently implemented in Malaysia over the spike of COVID-19 cases, Malaysians have been in a flurry at supermarkets trying their best to prepare for what’s to come while we go into hibernation mode for 2 weeks.  

Food suppliers are to remain open during this period so there’s no reason to stockpile – but if you want to skip the queues, consider getting groceries from these grocery stores in Malaysia that have online grocery delivery services. That way you’ll be getting your fill of food while practising social distancing from the comfort of your couch. 


1. Shojikiya – online Japanese grocery delivery
