PriyoShop, the ecommerce marketplace, launched a grocery delivery service. Evaly launched Evaly Express offering on-demand grocery deliveries across Dhaka city. Others with limited online grocery operations have expanded their coverage and service. And there are location specific grocery delivery services being launched and operated.
