Moscow Online Shopping Favorites

We have always appreciated the online shopping in Moscow for its convenience. Even more so now, when staying home under a very strict lock-down in Moscow we are encouraged to explore digital options as our main source. And we have been once again positively surprised by the broad selection, quality and impeccable service of many online stores which we have used during the last month. We will start sharing our first favorites with you now and also continue to share our tests of more online options to find great products and services which can make our quarantine life more bearable.
Omoloko Moscowliving
Flower shop "Dostavka tsvetov"
Fresh flowers at home is a great source of positive emotions which we all need now. Furthermore, delivering a flower bouquet is a kind gesture for a friend who needs to be cheered up or a small gift to somebody who celebrates a birthday in social isolation.
This shop offers attractive bouquets designs, freshness and selection of flowers, nice packaging and clear communication. This flower shop has very reasonable prices and as a regular customer we even got a 10% discount already from the second order. Besides, we could complete our orders with balloons and greeting cards with printed personal messages.
Meat and poultry shop "Prime meat"
We have tried their beef and lamb, minced meet, farm chicken and turkey, freshly made sausages and farm eggs. Along with nice quality and big selection, this online store has next day delivery time and no minimum order.
Milk products and ice cream "Omoloko"
In this online store we could find natural and very fresh milk products such as milk, smetana (Russian sour cream), tvorog (Russian cottage cheese) and yogurt. And ice cream of course which not only tastes good but it is even delivered with style: we got our deliveries by a car with a huge ice cream on top. It is next day delivery, no delivery fee on orders from 1000 rub and very reasonable prices.
Super quick grocery and necessities delivery "Samokat"
We have already written about Lavka by Yandex . Samokat is another fast delivery option for groceries by scooter or bicycle within 30 minutes and no service fee. The minimum order is only 200 rub! And we even received our orders in 15-25 minutes. Samokat has become our new life savior when we urgently need one or another critical ingredient for cooking.
Upload Delivery Club App and look for Самокат delivery.
Nuts and dried fruit shop "Nutsbox"
Nutsbox is a great option if you are looking for healthier snacks at home or to send a small gift to a friend of yours. The quality is good and packaging is very nice too. They sell teas and honey as well.
