Voilà by Sobeys is a first-of-its-kind grocery delivery system that was expedited during the pandemic. Sarah Joyce, Sobeys Inc. Senior Vice President, Ecommerce mobilized multiple stakeholders on a national scale to accelerate the launch of Voilà by Sobeys grocery delivery service to more quickly meet the unexpected and heightened demand for grocery delivery. The new ecommerce platform has a freshness guarantee, products are offered at affordable prices with no hidden fees, and groceries are delivered straight to customers’ doors in convenient one-hour delivery windows. Voilà delivers from an automated warehouse where robots assemble orders and Voilà teammates safely deliver them direct to the customer’s home with minimal handling.
