And in this age of lockdowns, local e-commerce has been a godsend, reducing social contacts to a minimum. The only problem? A limited selection of mostly mass-produced items. Enter gurkerl.at – a new Austrian online supermarket set to revolutionize conscious shopping.
Sustainability Comes in Threes
Online supermarket gurkerl.at‘s impressive product selection (currently 8,500 items with more being added regularly) consists of three sections:
- Produce from nearby farmers
- Specialty items
- Supermarket products
Online since early December last year, gurkerl.at stocks everything you’d find in an upscale supermarket, with special attention paid to organic produce – unlike many competitors.
Do you have dietary restrictions? Handy filters make it easy to single out vegan, kosher, halal and gluten-free products. To reduce food waste, their “Rette Lebensmittel” (save groceries) section only displays items that are near their expiration date. All these thoughtful features make gurkerl.at the ideal supermarket for the environmentally conscious, uniting sustainability with convenience.
Exclusivity Is Their Specialty
Tea time just got a whole lot better! Thanks to an exclusive deal with the beloved British retailer, gurkerl.at is Austria’s sole supplier of Marks & Spencer’s line of food and beverages, ranging from snacks, jams and sauces to coffee, tea and wine – all at affordable supermarket prices.
Whether you’re British yourself and miss the taste of home or have an Anglophile yearning for (proper) marmalade and shortbread, gurkerl.at’s Marks & Spencer section has everything your heart desires.
Patience Is a Virtue – But Not a Requirement
While it’s certainly smart to plan ahead, gurkerl.at allows you to be perfectly spontaneous with same day delivery from Monday through Saturday, 07:00-21:00. Simply pick a suitable time window at checkout (beginning three hours after you place your order) and get timely updates from their friendly delivery staff via text.
During lockdowns, they deliver for free and throw in a complimentary FFP2 mask on top.
Good to know: Their innovative logistics department strives to keep supply chains as short as possible to avoid food surpluses. To further counterbalance unnecessary waste, they work with food sharing organizations to redistribute what can’t be sold in time.
While their website is only available in German for now (an English version is already in the works), their staff is at your service and will gladly assist if you need any help.
