FairPrice On Wheels Now At 8 Locations Including Toa Payoh, Bukit Purmei & Ang Mo Kio

In April, we wrote about FairPrice’s new initiative, FairPrice On Wheels, making groceries more accessible to seniors during the ‘Circuit Breaker’ period.

After operating for just over a month, the vans will now be serving 3 more locations — Toa Payoh, Bukit Purmei and Ang Mo Kio.

From 28 May, you can catch the vans at a total of 8 locations, on alternate days of the week.

Now, they accept cash, credit, and NETS, so you can shop more conveniently.

New offerings updated weekly

FairPrice shared on their website that they would be heeding customers’ feedback and updating the offerings.

Every Thursday, they will feature 2 different weekly picks, bringing a wider range of products to their customers.

They updated their range of products offered as well, and will continue to bring in essentials like rice, noodles, canned food, and fresh produce.

Purchase limits & safe distancing still apply

Customers must still abide by safe distancing measures like queuing 1 metre apart from each other while shopping.

Additionally, purchase limits on essential items like paper products, rice, eggs and canned products still apply. You can refer to FairPrice’s website here for details on purchase limits.

All customers and staff must wear masks at all times too.

FairPrice On Wheels offers convenient shopping to seniors

It’s great that this helpful programme was expanded to more areas so more seniors can benefit from them.

Hopefully, it continues expanding, and perhaps even operates on a daily basis at all locations.
