What Items Can You Get With GrabExpress Pabili?
Since its launch in 2020, GrabExpress Pabili has become a trusted and reliable solution for many consumers.

You can get your favorite snack from the nearest convenience store, a pot of succulents from the plant store or a lightbulb from the hardware store.
Here are some of the items consumers buy through the GrabExpress Pabili feature:
Health is wealth during these trying times, and it comes as no surprise that many Filipinos are re-stocking vitamins to better protect themselves and their families. Some commonly requested items are multivitamins such as Conzace and Calciumade, and over-the-counter relief for minor ailments.
Almost no Filipino breakfast is complete without the inviting aroma of soft, warm, freshly-baked pandesal. Whether eaten by itself, dipped into coffee, or finished off with your spread and filling of choice, pandesal is a classic snack to munch on and best enjoyed at the start of each day. If you find yourself missing the familiar taste of pandesal, there’s no need to wait – a delivery-partner can buy a bag and bring it to you in no time!
Filipinos are, by nature, very social people. We enjoy throwing parties (safely, of course!) and pakain, especially when it means being able to share memories and laughter with loved ones over our favorite food. Paper plates for gatherings have therefore become a popular item on GrabExpress Pabili when people have forgotten to pick them up at the grocery, or ran into a shortage during time spent with friends and family.
GrabExpress Pabili is no stranger to the Korean wave! With many Filipinos missing the experience of traveling to Korea, going to Korean barbecue joints with their friends, or just simply craving Korean barbecue from watching mukbang vlogs, cooking kits for the crowd favorite samgyeopsal, with its rich and delectable flavors, also lands in the top five most popular Pabili items!
