New customers

Mayrand and Yaksa respond to the unprecedented and unpredictable demand due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Between March and April 2020, online grocery shopping habits changed dramatically. For Mayrand, it created a whole new online clientele of B2C shoppers.



- site traffic
- online orders
- new memberships


Buying habits changed, making pickup as important as delivery 

With online grocery becoming an essential service to millions of Canadians, and thanks to the flexibility of Mayrand's new Episerver CMS and eCommerce website, we were able to rapidly deploy a new online service, Mayrand Express.

  • New product selection, merchandising, categories etc. to offer 500 guaranteed in-stock products and 24-hour delivery
  • New shopping cart specific to this service
  • New pick-up and delivery scheduling module
  • From brainstorming to deployment in just 4 weeks!
