SPAR UK launches rapid delivery partnership with Deliveroo
SPAR UK has signed a partnership deal with Deliveroo for all 2,160 SPAR stores in England, Scotland and Wales.
This means that shoppers can order groceries from their local SPAR store and have them delivered in as little as 20 minutes.
Spar said the move will enable its shops to extend their customer base and to compete in the home delivery market.
Deliveroo customers will have access to around 2,000 food and drink products from participating SPAR stores, which initially totals 66, as the retailer looks ahead to onboarding as many independent and company owned stores as possible.
SPAR UK strategy and operations director Lee Johnson said: “This deal will enable SPAR stores to continue their rapid expansion into on-demand delivery.
“During the years of the pandemic, SPAR stores around the UK extended their service to communities by providing a variety of ecommerce delivery and call & collect solutions to local consumers. We are looking to accelerate this trend and cater to even more customers in the vicinity of SPAR stores by partnering with Deliveroo.”
