The run up to Christmas can be one of the most toxic times ever, and the situation does not change year after year. This is one of the peak times, if you’re into business like me; not to mention the Christmas gift shopping we have to do, the crazy schedule to meet family and friends, juggling traffic. Of course, don’t forget the long lines at every sales counter.
Like most moms, preparing for Noche Buena is big deal for me and I feel the need to be in charge of the kitchen. Every year, I notice though that am cramming for last-minute stuff to buy in the supermarket because am missing this or that ingredient. And let me tell you, the scene in Manila grocery stores the whole day of December 24 (Christmas Eve) is not the nicest one. It can be likened to a two-hour standstill traffic in EDSA. No kidding.
This is Lucia and me during a normal day shopping in Shopwise Sucat. The Dec. 24 queue is a lot less pleasant and relaxing…ugh.
The situation is about to change because we heard that Shopwise has just teamed up with Honestbee for door-to-door delivery of much-needed grocery items. This is such great news and definitely a time-saver! It comes at a most perfect time since we need all the help we can get this Xmas.
“We’re living up to our promise of giving our customers more choices for their online
grocery shopping, especially if they are looking for more affordable options for their daily essentials” said Crystal Gonzalez, Managing Director of honestbee Philippines.
Shopwise is one of my favorite stores to shop in because of their spacious aisles, Buy One Take One deals and their wide range of selections suits every type of budget.Aside from groceries, clothes, toys and home essentials, Shopwise also has quality affordable wines from French Cellar, Wine Makers Reserve, and Red Peak Australia, to name just a few.
Here’s an example of a beautifully-wrapped gift basket from Shopwise that arrived in my doorstep. Yes, you can order Shopwise gift packs online too.
These are just some of the gourmet selections you can choose from and they’re sure to please any recipient.
