Tesco extending same day online delivery across UK
Tesco is extending its same day online grocery delivery service across the entire UK. In a statement issued today (24 July), Tesco said that this makes it “the first retailer to offer nationwide same day grocery delivery”.
Tesco launched same day grocery delivery in London and the South East in 2014 and is now extending the service to over 300 stores across the UK, “covering over 99% of UK households”.
Customers can order by 1pm to have their shopping delivered from 7pm onwards and receive an unlimited number of items. The new service is priced between £3 and £8 but is free for a limited period to members of Tesco’s online delivery membership scheme, Delivery Saver.
Same day deliveries are proving increasingly popular with Tesco seeing an 18% growth in demand for the service so far this year.
Earlier this year Tesco also extended its Same Day Click+Collect service to 300 locations across the UK and – as previously reported by Post&Parcel, it has been rolling out its new Tesco Now service in London.
