Smarter Name and Logo

First we wanted to change our name to something a little bit more catchy and that sums up the user experience a little bit better and voila we came up with Smart City Foods.  We came up with this name because really it is the “Smarter” way to go grocery shopping!

The New Flashier Website

 

We wanted to create a new more modern storefront which is easier and faster to navigate to ensure that you can get that shopping done in record breaking time!

First we have cut down our main store sections into 7 main categories as you would find them in a stereotypical grocery store (bakery, nonperishable items, fridge/freezer, meat market, health & beauty,  produce, and specialty).  These new sections, a more organized aisle arrangement, plus the handy search bar up in the top right make searching for your groceries a breeze.

To help with navigation we have also added 2 different views for products.  The default is the grid view, so you can see more in less space.  We also have a list view which is what we used on Sky Rise Foods.  To switch views just click Capture at the top of the product page.



Meal Planner

The Meal Planner:  We have published a Meal Planner which will BLOW YOUR MIND and help you:

  1. schedule your week including targeted calorie and other nutritional goals
  2. create a meal plan including recipes for your day
  3. create a shopping list for you to have delivered with the push of 1 button


High-School-Fundraising

Local Groups Fundraising Options:

Local groups or schools who are fundraising for events, such as sports teams, choirs, social groups, special interest groups, local charities, schools, grad committees, etc can raise money by setting up an account for their purpose with Smart City Foods.  Smart City Foods will donate up to 10% of the order values to the group, just by having people in support, purchase their groceries using Smart City Foods, by emailing fundraisers@smartcityfoods.com.  No strings attached!

The Wishlist

 

The wishlist makes it easy for you to share what groceries you are dreaming of with friends and family.   A perfect situation where this would come in handy is if a parent is in Ontario wanting to surprise their son who is a student at UBC, now there is no more guess work, they just simply see what their son has in their wishlist and adds it to the cart!  Wishlists can be added on the product page beside add to cart and can be shared by going into the “wishlist” section in “my account” and sharing via facebook, twitter, pinterest, or google+.

Nutritional Information

 

A huge factor of what we eat is the nutritional information of what we eat and that is why we are introducing a new tab onto products to view nutritional information.  You will see this tab on the product details page right beside description.  We will be uploading this nutritional data onto products every day.  So keep your eye out.

New Same day Delivery

Just when you think we were done, we added same day delivery. If you are up and make an order before 6am we can do the order same day in any of our time slots, including the 9am one.
