With the coronavirus lockdown, UAE residents are more likely to turn to grocery apps
As the government has given a stay-home order to slow the pandemic in the UAE and that all non-essential stores will shortly close, here is a list that will be very useful for UAE residents.
Food shopping is still allowed but TRA (Telecommunications Regulatory Authority) has listed names of apps for online groceries in the UAE to facilitate the confinement as much as possible.
The list includes 51 shops (initially 22 listed) providing home deliveries for vegetables, fruits, fresh food, butchery, grocery. This is a great initiative taken by the TRA as cooking at home is very much back in vogue (worldwide) ever since the confinement started.
The list of apps is non-exhaustive, more apps might be added over time, stay tuned by checking http://wam.ae/
For now the listed businesses are below:

In detail, the number of mobile applications of e-stores rose to 55 as of 6th April, compared to 22 in the preliminary list published two weeks ago. The TRA noted that the number of e-stores on the list is expected to continue growing in the coming days to meet the consumer demand. The beginning of the current year witnessed an increase in consumer demand for e-shopping around the country, leading to an increase in online sales and a decrease in overcrowding in traditional stores. #wamnews
