Metro Manila commuters recently saw billboards about a certain ‘SALLY.’ They noticed this while stuck in traffic along EDSA, C5 and in Commonwealth.
‘SALLY, where are you?’ ‘I need you, SALLY’ …..
So who exactly is SALLY? For those wondering, their curiosity was answered just in time. It turns out SALLY is a shortened term for Shopping Ally. This is what the newly introduced PUREGOLD MOBILE stands for. It promises to take grocery shopping to the next level.
The app was designed by Puregold and Globe Telecom to adapt to consumer’s evolving
needs and to keep pace with the technology in offering a better way to shop. SALLY was launched recently with actor/TV host Luis Manzano in attendance.
With PUREGOLD MOBILE, cart-less grocery shopping is now possible. Simply scan the
barcode of the items that you want to purchase. When you’re done, await confirmation.
Using the app allows you to skip the long lines in the cashier checkout. The assigned pickers
and baggers will put together your basket, while you wait. Or you can come back to pick up at a later time. The app gives you the convenience to do other things instead of hauling around a
cart and falling in line.

Another feature of the app is that you can reorder products from the Order History. This is
ideal for all negosyantes or SMEs (Small-to-Medium Enterprise) who need to replenish stocks.
You can also get real-time responses about order status and other grocery-related inquiries
through the ASK SALLY in-app chat.
PUREGOLD MOBILE also offers flexible payment methods. You can choose to pay cash at
the store or use your credit/debit card. GCASH option is also available.
The quest to find a solution to make our lives easier continues on a daily basis. When it comes to grocery shopping, Puregold believes that there’s always a better way. With PUREGOLD
MOBILE app, everyone has now access to their very own shopping ally, their own ‘SALLY.’
PUREGOLD MOBILE is available for download from Google Play (for Android users) or the App
Store (for iOS users) starting January 31, 2020.
