This additional category was a profitable move, as this adds to our overall order size. As a matter of fact, grocery in spite of being a low margin business, has been unit economics profitable for us from day one due to its strategic launch after Fresh. Furthermore, unlike other players in the industry, we have introduced a 'Wholesale' category that allows our customers to order their daily use items in bulk and increases ticket size for us."
