Just Eat to begin deliveries to Londis, Premier, Budgens and Family Shopper customers
Booker Wholesale has teamed up with Just Eat to enable thousands of symbol group convenience stores to offer their customers grocery deliveries direct to their door within 25 minutes.
The move will apply to operators of Londis, Premier, Budgens and Family Shopper stores.
In a statement, Just Eat said its customer base of over 18 million and delivery reach of 97% of the UK will enable symbol group stores to reach thousands more customers in their local areas.
Amy Heather, strategic accounts director at Just Eat, said: “Consumers are increasingly looking to have anything and everything delivered to the door – not just their favourite takeaway. That’s why convenience stores are among the fastest growing sectors
“Just Eat’s position as the UK’s leading food delivery app coupled with Booker Wholesale’s scale means we’re well positioned to help Londis, Premier, Budgens and Family Shopper retailers capitalise on this surge in demand. It’s an exciting next step in the expansion of
our grocery offering.”
Just Eat first began offering on-demand grocery delivery late last year by launching a partnership with Asda. Since then, convenience operators One Stop and Co-Op Central England have also partnered with the platform.
