Sainsbury's launches grocery click and collect service
Nearly 20 stores will go live with the service in the next two weeks as the supermarket looks to roll it out to 100 stores by the end of the year.
Customers choosing to use the service will pick up their online grocery orders from a refrigerated van which will be parked in a designated area in the stores' car parks and manned by Sainsbury’s staff.
Sainsbury’s online director Robbie Feather said: "This is yet another step for Sainsbury’s increasingly popular online service, and a demonstration of our commitment to giving our customers more convenient ways to shop with us, wherever and whenever they want.
"We’ll have 20 locations live by the end of March and will quickly roll out our service from there, incorporating feedback from our customers and colleagues as we go."
The free collection slots will be available at eligible stores from Monday to Saturday from 8am to 1pm and then 2pm until 8pm in the evening. The service will also be available during store opening times on a Sunday.
Collections are subject to a minimum £20 spend, with no collection charge. Customers can place orders up to 20 days in advance. The latest an order can be placed for next day collection is 11pm.
