Co-op expands ‘deliver quick’ convenience option with Uber Eats
Co-op has teamed up with Uber Eats as part of plans to expand its on-demand online home delivery service in local communities.
The move will enable shoppers to order groceries for home delivery via the Uber Eats app from around 1,000 Co-op food stores by the end of the year.
Through a phased roll-out out the scheme, the convenience retailer is using the physical footprint of its existing store estate for deliveries to be made in as little as 30 minutes.
The service is available for a full grocery shop as well as on-demand top-ups.
Chris Conway, Co-op’s ecommerce director, said: “As a convenience retailer, we know the ability to pop into a local Co-op will always be important to customers, but we also know that fast and flexible options online are important to shoppers too – and so by using our stores located in the heart of communities to provide rapid home deliveries, we can meet customer needs and make shopping easier, however, wherever and whenever our members and customers choose to shop with us.”
Co-op’s online offer has grown at pace through both its own online shop and with partners. After seeing over 40 consecutive months of growth, the retailer is looking to increase its online business to £300 million this year.
