Super-Pharm launched an online delivery service for its name brand drugstore earlier this year.

 

The company also partnered with Tel Aviv-based warehouse robotics startup CommonSense Robotics Ltd. to set up and operate an automated logistics center for future ecommerce operations.
Founded in 2017, Bring Bring operates a digital store where customers can order groceries and other supermarket staples and get free delivery in up to four hours.

 

In a statement, Super-Pharm CEO Nitzan Lavie said that one of the goals behind the investment is to increase usage of the chain’s credit-based membership card, LifeStyle. “Food is the most significant credit card expense,” he said. “We have been looking for a partner in food retail for years, so we can offer more to LifeStyle customers and increase use of the card.”
