Questions about home delivery / preparation and delivery / Foody

I cannot find your Hypermarket on Foody / It says it is closed
If a supermarket reaches the limit of the volume of deliveries it is capable of preparing, then it will be temporarily removed from Foody. The option will be available again as soon as possible.
Do you provide a service for the products to be prepared and picked up from the store?
We only offer a home delivery service through the Foody application.
