Money Saver India
Late-night home delivery services

Late-night home delivery services

They’re new to India, but already performing a big service to partygoers and midnight-snackers in the big cities. They may not be money-savers, but they’re life-savers for sure.

We’ve all been there – it’s two in the morning, you’re hosting a party and out of supplies. You don’t have mixers, you need snacks now, and perhaps dessert later. Your only option has been to beg a friend to hunt for street food or the chemist that happens to also stock ‘general’ 2am necessities. Well, not anymore. Here’s a list of services, currently only in a few cities, that will home deliver all you need at very reasonable prices through the night.
