Robinsons Retail’s Group-Wide
E-Commerce Site

GoRobinsons.ph was launched in June 2020 as an e-commerce site envisioned to serve as a virtual marketplace for all the group’s formats. The website offers a convenient platform for everyone to shop for their daily needs from trusted brands – anytime. It has a wide assortment of products sold at the same price as the store and allows advanced booking for up to 3 days.

Going online was an inevitable step Robinsons Retail had to take, and we see gorobinsons.ph as a one-stop online shop and lifestyle partner for our shoppers. The new dynamic of social distancing and quarantine made the role of e-commerce all the more crucial to keep serving customers.

GoRobinsons.ph currently serves as an online store for supermarket banners Robinsons Supermarket, The Marketplace and Shopwise, offering fresh produce and grocery items as well as imported gourmet selections. Toys ‘R’ Us is also in gorobinsons.ph, housing a diverse portfolio of popular children’s toys and educational products. Most recently, Handyman and No Brand were added to the platform. With the inclusion of Handyman Do it Best, customers may now shop online for a wide range of hardware and home improvement products. No Brand, on the other hand, offers private label grocery and frozen food items from Korea.

GoRobinsons.ph has a mobile app which can be downloaded in IOS and Playstore. The service currently covers select areas in Metro Manila and Rizal, and is set to expand its scope further in the coming months.

Our aim is to bring our customers closer to products and services that they need at various touchpoints, and we are banking on technological synergies to make this all possible. The strategic onboarding of Robinsons Retail banners in gorobinsons.ph and targeted digital campaigns are all part of deepening our digital footprint. The platform is also integrated with the Robinsons Rewards Program, whose 3.1 million members can earn rewards points if they purchase products through GoRobinsons.ph.

The GAP Certification process is a meticulous audit of multiple aspects of farming, from the history of the farm site, the quality of the soil, farming practices, health and hygiene of farmers, and other factors. Our drugstores guarantee safety at all times.

For our drugstores, we follow a similarly strict monitoring process of expiration dates and product condition, as well as correct product dispensing. At Toys ‘R’ Us, we guarantee that not a single toy marketed will put a child or a family member at risk. 

All our toys comply with the Philippine National Standards (PNS) for Safety of Toys and carry a Certificate of Conformity (COC). Also, all our distributors and manufacturers must have a valid License to Operate (LTO) from the Department of Health (DOH) at all times. All toys are tested for physical and mechanical safety, flammability, electrical safety, and proper age warning labeling.
