Bay Shop was started in the midst of the lockdown crisis of 2020, where most people have been in isolation within their homes and national delivery services increased online sales within the Bay. We are now evolving to become the online food store of choice, as Bay Shop was started in PE and will remain in PE.
We believe the supply-chain within Nelson Mandela Bay should be protected at all cost, otherwise the cities in Gauteng and the Western Cape will grow their economies to the detriment of the Eastern Cape. Bay Shop only uses good local providers within Nelson Mandela Bay, then manages the deliveries to ensure cost remain from a low, instead of the R60+ that national online shops charge the people in the Bay. At the same time we manage various suppliers, which becomes a cost saving for our customers, as they don’t need to drive around town to get their supplies from each of the shops.
Bay Shop will continue to drive expansion in products and departments to provide real convenience in finding fresh produce and other products, while having all delivered in one go. We are available during non-business hours for deliveries, as we understand the difficulties of availability of working parents, while always striving to deliver same day if order is placed and paid before 09:00, otherwise we deliver the next business day. Soon we will be adding a bakery, spices, custom brand clothing and other exciting suppliers in the Nelson Mandela Bay area.
In the next few weeks we will add suggestions for meal planning, school and work lunchbox planning and various seasonal recipes with videos, ingredients and descriptions. This will ensure our customers receive the ultimate in convenience, as we will only load quick and easy recipes.
We only service the Nelson Mandela Bay Metro for deliveries. However, if you feel you want to purchase through us anyways, you are welcome to contact us to assist with using our courier services at your own cost.
Bay Shop is open to any entrepreneur or small business owner to list products on Bay Shop. A custom made page will be made for your products.
Bay Shop will also negotiate bulk deals for better pricing. Retirement homes, frail care, children homes, animal welfare institutions or any business that requires quality fresh produce in bulk, may contact us for a free sample hamper to check quality.
