After launching its services in Lahore, the e-grocery startup expanded its operations to Islamabad and Rawalpindi last year, followed by Faisalabad . GrocerApp plans on using this investment to boost its current operations and also penetrate the Karachi market.

"With the new funding round, we plan to quickly expand our offerings to strategic cities as well as expanding new business initiatives in the online grocery retail segment,” he said in a press release.
