Co-op expands online home delivery in Scotland
Co-op is expanding the roll-out of its online shop in Scotland and increasing the number of slots available for shoppers.
The retailer has teamed up with same-day delivery specialist Gophr to offer a new service that will initially go live with six Co-op stores this month in Glasgow. This will be followed by a roll-out to more than 50 shops across Scotland in the coming weeks.
Co-op said the service will result in thousands more delivery slots being made available across Scotland in areas such as Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Inverness and Perth.
Deliveries can be made up to four kilometres from a store and in as little as two hours through Co-op’s own online shop. Customers can choose from around 4,500 products and can track their deliveries in real time.
Matt Arrigonie, Co-op’s online operations manager, said: “We continue to look for new ways to innovate and expand access to our products and services to deliver a truly compelling offer for consumers, conveniently. By collaborating with partners we can offer further flexibility and choice to meet community needs for shopping locally with ease, speed and safety. Delivering what our Members and customers want, when and where they need it.”
