Sainsbury’s has partnered with both Uber Eats and Deliveroo to offer rapid delivery from a combined 20 stores in coming weeks.
The supermarket’s Camden superstore is the first to offer the Uber Eats service, giving customers the choice of around 1,000 own-label and brand SKUs. The range on the platform includes Taste the Difference ready meals, fresh fruit and vegetables, free-from products and store cupboard essentials. A further nine stores will be added to the platform in coming weeks. If successful, the partnership “may be extended” Sainsbury’s said, pointing to the 120 town and city coverage of Uber Eats.
For Sainsbury’s Deliveroo trial, 10 stores will join the platform, beginning with its North End Crescent Local store in Hammersmith which went live on Thursday. The same selection and number of SKUs are being offered.
“Complementing our Chop Chop fast delivery service, which delivers groceries to customers within 60 minutes, working with Uber Eats will offer another way for customers to get Sainsbury’s groceries delivered to their door quickly, conveniently and safely,” said Nigel Blunt, Sainsbury’s director of ecommerce.
“We’re always on the lookout for how we can make our customers lives easier and we know how much they value being able to get groceries delivered to their doors quickly, conveniently, and safely. Since March we’ve more than doubled our grocery online capacity and by working with Deliveroo we can serve even more shoppers this way,” he added.
