Co-op has partnered with Uber Eats as it expands its on-demand online home delivery service and looks to meet growing demand for rapid delivery.
Customers of the convenience retailer will be able to order quick, online home delivery via the Uber Eats app from around 1,000 Co-op food stores by the end of the year, with groceries delivered in as little as 30 minutes.
Customers can choose from over 6,000 products stocked in local Co-op stores, with existing stores used to ensure deliveries are made quickly and conveniently within the local community.
Chris Conway, Co-op’s ecommerce director, said: “We are committed to offering quality and value with Co-op’s ease, speed and convenience.
“As a convenience retailer, we know the ability to pop into a local Co-op will always be important to customers, but we also know that fast and flexible options online are important to shoppers too – and so by using our stores located in the heart of communities to provide rapid home deliveries, we can meet customer needs and make shopping easier, however, wherever and whenever our members and customers choose to shop with us.”
Through a phased rollout, the service will enable shoppers to do both full grocery shops and on-demand top-ups or forgotten items. Groceries available via Uber Eats include Co-op’s own brand and Irresistible range, as well as fresh products, fruit and vegetables, popular brands, offers and promotions.
Alex Troughton, head of commerce at Uber Eats UK, added: “We are delighted to be partnering with Co-op, one of the most popular grocery retailers in the UK. Our mission is to be the platform of choice across the UK, and with this partnership, more customers will be able to order all their grocery needs at the touch of the button. So whether you are in need of some dinner inspiration or looking to do the weekly shop, Uber Eats and Co-op have got you covered.”
