ShopRite & MyWebGrocer Launch the First Retail Grocery Weekly Specials Android App

September 02, 2010

Building off the success of ShopRite’s iPhone App, MyWebGrocer and ShopRite supermarkets have teamed up again to launch a new Android Application, ShopRite Weekly Specials™. The new App, which is free and available now through Android’s Market, is the first App dedicated to weekly grocery specials on Android’s Operating System.

ShopRite’s customers are spending more time on their mobile devices and this App is yet another way to make ShopRite’s customers’ lives easier. The App is a portable circular and pre-store planning tool that invites consumers to “start saving” by browsing hundreds of items instantly. Among its many groundbreaking features, ShopRite Weekly Specials enables consumers to see what’s on sale in real time at their neighborhood ShopRite store. Once they select an item, it is added to their shopping list, which is neatly organized by category with pictures, descriptions and real time prices. Shoppers can also use the voice command to add items to their list by speaking into the App. The App syncs and downloads store specials directly to any Android mobile device and can even sync with customers’ shopping list at ShopRite.com.

“Our customers are on-the-go more then ever, and by teaming up with MyWebGrocer we continue to make their busy lives easier,” explains ShopRite VP of Marketing Cheryl Williams. “Our Android mobile app is the perfect extension of our mobile strategy, providing our customers the opportunity to interact with our weekly savings circular wherever they are. Given the increase we’ve experienced in visits to ShopRite.com from Android phones, it was the natural next step.”

MyWebGrocer CEO Rich Tarrant said, “Our goal is to help our clients engage with their customers where ever they are in the digital space. We are very pleased to deliver an Android mobile solution for ShopRite. Ever since the early success of their iPhone savings App, we knew that a mobile strategy for multiple platforms made sense.”

The new ShopRite Weekly Specials App is available now as a free download on the Android Market by search “ShopRite” on your web enabled Android phone.
