These 10 Grocery Shopping Sites In M'sia Ensure You Never Have To Leave Your Couch

Online grocery shopping and delivery services have brought a lot of convenience to people living in Malaysia. Many local grocery stores have even expanded their services to allow for online purchasing and delivery. Thanks to them, we can now simply wait for our groceries in the comforts of our home, instead of being stuck in the traffic or lining up for checkout.

Here are some of the online grocery shopping sites that you might want to try out:

1. Tesco
