Non-food items include washing powders and soaps, health and beauty products, toiletries, travel goods, kitchenware, stationery and polishers.
Lifestyle Holdings chief executive officer Tawanda Nyambirai told NewsDay Business yesterday that the development had been inspired by the demand of services by TN Mart customers.
He said to date 33 000 applications had been received with 7 000 coming from the Warren Park area.
“We are getting orders and we are ready to deliver,” Nyambirai said.
He said the TN Virtual Mart applications were being grouped according to their geographical locations, thereby spreading the costs of delivery.
“We expect to fully service the 33 000 customers’ accounts and continue to build our customer base,” Nyambirai said.
In a statement TN Mart said the Virtual Mart was an exciting and convenient way of purchasing groceries.
“We will deliver your order right to your doorstep as quickly as possible.
“Payment is done on delivery. It’s that easy! Call us now and order your groceries. No order is too small or too big,” reads part of the statement.
The group recently expanded its product offering by launching a retail brand, TN Mart, and a fast-food chain, TN Grill.
The group entered into a 12-year lease agreement with Rufaro Marketing for its former beerhalls which it intends to use to further expand its retail offering.
