Deliveroo: offering home grocery deliveries to even more customers
This means around 30% of the total UK population in Deliveroo zones can now access more than 1,000 products from Sainsbury’s and have them delivered in as little as 20 minutes.
The expansion includes 22 new stores in London with the remaining stores spread nationally. The trial was initially launched in 10 stores last November.
New locations include Glasgow, Liverpool, Newcastle, Leeds, Aberdeen and York.
Nigel Blunt, Director of eCommerce, Sainsbury’s said: “Working with Deliveroo has helped us offer home grocery deliveries to even more customers, bringing them a super-fast service when they need something in a hurry. We know how much Sainsbury’s customers value being able to shop for food as quickly and conveniently as possible and we’re delighted to be able to expand this service further.”
Eric French, Chief Marketplace Officer, Deliveroo said: “We are delighted to announce this expansion of our new partnership with Sainsbury’s, which has proved so popular with customers. Deliveroo’s on-demand grocery partnerships have proven vital for so many people during the pandemic, allowing families to get the food and household items they need and want quickly. We are excited to continue expanding this partnership in the weeks ahead and offer Sainsbury’s amazing products to even more customers across the UK.”
This announcement follows the news that Deliveroo expects to expand into around 100 new towns and cities across all four nations of the UK in 2021 and expects to reach around 4 million more customers.
