Lookup, the hyperlocal messaging mobile application which lets you talk to local vendors and get things, has introduced delivery services in partnership with hyperlocal delivery startup Roadrunnr. With this association, both companies are aiming to empower small store owners to manage their businesses better.
Users in Bangalore, Mumbai and Delhi can order anything from their local stores ranging from food, groceries, medicines, electronics and much more. The link for tracking the delivery will also be sent in chat.
Lookup already has a similar partnership with Delhivery, for delivering items in Delhi and nearby areas.
And as was the case with its previous partnership, one can get medicines, groceries, food and other products delivered at their doorstep by just chatting with stores through Lookup, with deliveries being handled by Roadrunnr. Also, there is no minimum order requirement.
