The Lopue’s San Sebastian Online Ordering App
Covid-19 surely changed our ways. Many moms used to consider grocery shopping as very therapeutic–a chance to get away from the noise at home and just concentrate on picking the family’s supply.
When the lockdown happened, we were suddenly forced to stay at home. And even if we are allowed to go out now, we still would rather stay at home and avoid crowded places. That includes the supermarket.
However, we also need to replenish our stocks. That’s where the dilemma comes in. We need to buy things but we don’t want to go out. What to do? Thankfully, one of the oldest grocery stores in Bacolod City has decided to go digital. Introducing the Lopue’s San Sebastian Online Ordering app so that we can conveniently order grocery online in Bacolod. And yes, they offer delivery services, too.

Advantages of Shopping for Groceries Online
What can I say? There are just so many advantages of grocery shopping online using the Lopue’s San Sebastian Online Ordering App.
You don’t have to out of your home anymore when you need to buy groceries. No need to change clothes, drive and park the car, and contend with vehicle as well as people traffic. You can conveniently pick your choices, add some, delete some, and save your cart for later. Yes, you are open to second thoughts.
The best thing is, you can do this even at night because the app is available online 24/7. Your orders will just be processed the following day.
For working moms, you can do it while on break at the office. You no longer have to rush to the supermarket during your breaks or after-office hours just to pick up necessities for the family.
There is very minimal contact with other people when ordering groceries online. The only human interaction here perhaps is the bagger handing out your shopping bags or boxes and then your receipt and change. If you paid through the bank, then all you get is your receipt.
Just remember to wear your face mask and sanitize afterwards if you are concerned about infection. Or if you want to be really safe, you can have a Covilyzer UVC Sanitizer bag in the car. You can use this to sanitizer handheld items like credit cards, wallets, face masks, handkerchiefs, or even your cash and receipts. Read more about it: The Covilyzer UVC Sanitizer Bag for Your Home
The Lopue’s San Sebastian staff will process your orders during working hours. They will then confirm via a phone call if everything is available. If not, they will offer substitutes.
After you finalize everything with them, you can schedule your curb-side pickup or delivery. After two orders, they gave me exact change. I didn’t bother counting the money during pickup. But when I went home, I would open the envelope and check my change and it’s correct.
I cannot stress how efficient this service is. Lopue’s San Sebastian has just made our lives so much better and safer. We know that we need stuff for our daily needs but we also need to be safe. This new service just gives us the best of both worlds! And this is the first in Bacolod, too.

In my case, since I only have a small order, I chose the curb-side pickup option. I tell them how much my cash is so that they can already prepare the change. When we picked up my order, we met by the San Sebastian Street entrance where I handed my payment and also got my change. Pretty breezy, huh?
