The service is in its trial stage to enable everyone to book appointments to shop at coops in their area. The shopping will be done at specific dates and times. The web page allows shopping from slaughterhouses, fish markets, cooperative societies, catering branches, and central markets.

Kuwait Full Curfew
Is there any chance in Kuwait of full curfew? Yes, there is a chance of full curfew but Govt of Kuwait is not going for full curfew so far just to save people from difficulties. However, Govt is taking many steps to stop the spread of corona in Kuwait and trying its best to avoid Kuwait full curfew. But if the number of daily new corona Kuwait cases keeps on increasing then Govt has to think seriously about full curfew. What are your opinion, would you like to share your views?
Please note down the reference number immediately after booking an appointment, because you will not be able to go shopping without a valid reference number. It is better to take a screenshot of the final screen.
Moreover, there is no cancellation or amendment without a reference number. Hence, without the reference number you will waste your time.
