Octopus Online Stores

OctopusOs is the first company in the Netherlands that bridges the gap between customers and their preferred mini-markets (TOKO’s). We deliver the culturally-specific groceries and lifestyle products that are available at those shops ONLY. We have no inventory. We are NOT Getir, Gorillas or Flink. We target the social inclusion and sustianbility.
