Who are you including among the ‘real heroes’ – only healthcare workers or also delivery personnel, grocery /pharmacy store managers and caregivers, among others?
Co-founders: Yes, we are offering this 20% discount to anybody who is risking infection on the front lines; basically, those who cannot afford to be confined. This includes healthcare workers in priority, but also anybody else who qualifies – for example, police.
Are you offering round-the-clock delivery to the frontline workers, since their schedule is erratic?
Co-founders: We are offering free next day delivery for everybody, with a very high rate of success. For exceptional cases we can bend our delivery policy.
Are you offering similar benefits to your own frontline employees, i.e., delivery & warehouse personnel?
Co-founders: Absolutely, our own frontline employees receive a special internal discount.
