Central England Co-op trials eco-friendly within the hour delivery service
Central England Co-op has linked up with Snappy Shopper to trial a new eco-friendly service where customers can get their shopping delivered in less than an hour.
Currently being piloted in Derby and Birmingham, the scheme enables shoppers to make their selection through the Snappy Shopper app then have their shopping picked and packed at a nearby Central England Co-op store. It is then delivered to them without the use of plastic bags by a special electronic vehicle.
Tony Watt, Central England Co-op’s Littleover food store manager, said: “We are proud to be one of the main hubs hosting this exciting trial that will allow local shoppers quick and convenient access to get food and vital essentials from their local Central England Co-op store.
“Recent times have really showed us all the benefits of being able to shop local with a trusted, community focused retailer and this trial with Snappy Shopper is another great extension of that way of thinking and how we, as a Society, are always trying to come up with more ways to improve the shopping experience for our customers and members.”
Customers ordering via the app will have access to over 1,500 products including everyday groceries, alcohol and snacks. They will be able to request delivery within the hour seven days a week during a 10-hour time window.
All prices will be the same as in Central England Co-op stores, although there will be a £3 delivery charge and a minimum order value of £15. However, free delivery is being offered for first-time orders.
