Tiggy Grocery-Delivery App Suspends Operations in Toronto, North Vancouver
Vancouver-based grocery-delivery app Tiggy has closed its North Vancouver store and suspended its Toronto operations, BIV Is reporting. The company operated six commercial sites in Vancouver and one in North Vancouver, according to CEO Eugene Bisovka.
Based on Tiggy’s app, the company was still accepting some orders from these areas. However, a Tiggy customer who ordered food for delivery to a North Vancouver address on July 2 received a message several hours later saying that “the store has closed permanently and your order has been refunded.”
Some other customers also saw messages on their apps saying that Tiggy was “temporarily closed” – the same message that appeared for customers in the downtown area this morning.
Tiggy launched in Vancouver in September with one grocery depot and quickly added more. North Vancouver and Toronto operations launched earlier this year.
The company’s grocery depot sites, which are not open to the public, also stocked items such as pastries from local bakeries and brewed coffee made on site.
