To facilitate the delivery of essentials at consumers' doorstep in the fastest and safest manner possible, Flipkart today announced its partnership with modern retail store chain, Vishal Mega Mart.

Under this partnership, consumers across 365 Vishal Mega Mart stores will be able to order products and get them delivered at their doorstep by Flipkart.

On the tie-up, Kalyan Krishnamurthy, CEO, Flipkart Group, said, "Flipkart is constantly innovating to help fulfil consumers' needs in these unprecedented times. Our teams are working relentlessly to understand the requirements of each region and forging strategic tie-ups to meet the same.
