What3words has partnered with on-demand grocery supplier Weezy to allow customers to order groceries wherever they may be.
Weezy works with local bakers and butchers, and sources fruit and veg from local markets, to stock a wide but carefully curated range of over 2,000 high-quality products at retail prices. The range also includes alcoholic drinks, dairy, snacks, party games like Twister, and pharmacy products for emergency needs.
Weezy customer delivery representatives stock, pack and deliver the groceries within minutes of customers placing an order, and only deliver on bicycles or electric mopeds, in as little as 15 minutes.
The service initially launched in London last year, in Bristol and Brighton last month and has expanded into Manchester this week.
Customers sign up by downloading the Weezy and what3words apps on the App Store and Google Play. They then add their what3words address at checkout and wait for their delivery even if out and about.
Chris Sheldrick, co-founder and CEO of what3words, which has divided the world into a grid of 3m squares and given each a unique what3words address made of three dictionary words, said consumer expectations for on-demand deliveries are rising. “They expect fast deliveries, without holdups, and without having to pick up the phone to give directions. Weezy’s relationship with what3words helps to exceed those expectations with quick and accurate deliveries to exactly where their customers want them.”
Kristof Van Beveren, co-founder and CEO of Weezy. said the service was particularly useful as the UK emerges from lockdown. “With lockdown easing in the UK, we know that friends and family want to get together safely outside and we wanted to make it simple for them to get quality products anywhere. Now they can meet for a picnic or even a BBQ on the beach without having to carry anything there. Weezy can deliver a full shop or just some beers.”
