Tesco rolls out online grocery delivery to Western Isles of Scotland

People living in the Western Isles of Scotland will be able to benefit from an online grocery delivery service as Tesco launches its dotcom service on the Isle of Lewis today.

The new service will be provided from the Tesco store in the island’s capital Stornoway, which is closer to Iceland than to London, and will create 29 new jobs for local people.

Simon Belsham, managing director of Tesco.com said: “We believe everyone should benefit from the best possible service wherever they live including the convenience of ordering their groceries online. At Tesco, we have been able to use unique assets of a nationwide stores and distribution network to create an online service for customers on Lewis.”

Kevin Poke, store manager at Tesco Stornoway added: “We’re really excited to be offering this new service. Lots of customers have told us that it’s going to make their weekly shop a lot more convenient, because they can have their groceries delivered at a time that suits them.”

The delivery service will run from Tuesday to Saturday between 9am and 11pm.

Tesco has also revealed that it is looking to develop a Click & Collect grocery service on the Isle of Skye later this year.
