Central England Co-op trials new grocery delivery service
Central England Co-op is piloting a new service where customers can have their groceries delivered to their door at a time of their choosing.
Working with Appy Shop, the retailer is running the trial in parts of Norfolk, Leicester, Stafford and Burton.
After shoppers order their Co-op shop via the Appy Shop app or website, items are picked and packed at a nearby Central England Co-op store before being delivered via a special electronic vehicle. In addition, all shopping is delivered without the use of plastic bags.
Donna Jones, Co-op 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 Appy Shop 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 using the service have access to hundreds of products including everyday groceries, alcohol and snacks. All prices are the same as in-store, although there is a £3 delivery charge and a minimum order value of £15.
