Pinga expands into Islington

We’re pleased to say we’ve expanded out of our Hackney launch site and you can now get anything you need as far west as Barnsbury and into Clerkenwell.

Islington residents have been quick to take advantage of the Pinga app! We’ve added around 1,000 supermarket items that you can get to your door in less than 30 minutes, and around 500 users have already downloaded and started ordering. 

New Pinga partners are signing up everyday in Islington and Hackney

Although supermarket browsing is popular, we’ll always be on hand for ‘everyday emergencies’ – yesterday Zara urgently needed eye drops from Boots  and nearby Pinga Partner Ollie was able to drop them off in 20 minutes. Good work Ollie!

Our next move is south into the City, where we’ve already been picking up tasks, notably an urgent toaster delivery three days ago to We Work Moorgate!
