Co-op now has 400 stores offering Deliveroo delivery

Co-op grocery and convenience store customers can now have Deliveroo deliveries from 400 stores around the UK. This is a milestone between the grocery chain and on-demand delivery company in a relationship that began in 2019.

According to Co-op the 400 stores serve towns and cities with a combined population of 27 million, making the supermarket chain the most widely available supermarket on the Deliveroo app.

The Deliveroo app offers more than 600 lines of grocery and household items from Co-op. These are packed by colleagues at local stores and delivered to customers in as little as 30 minutes.

The partnership with Co-op began in 2019 and now covers 128 towns and cities across the UK. The top four cities for on-demand deliveries with Co-op are London, Manchester, Leeds and Brighton.

Chris Conway, Head of Ecommerce, Co-op, commented: “We are offering speed, flexibility and choice with on demand, online convenience meeting consumer needs in our communities. We have accelerated our plans to roll-out online delivery through our own online store and with partners. Products are selected locally by Co-op stores which act as micro-distribution hubs and so also benefit from the significant increase seen in demand as consumer shopping trends change in the wake of Covid-19 and more people shop for food online.”

Ajay Lakhani, Vice President of New Business, Deliveroo, added: “We are delighted that the Co-op and Deliveroo partnership has been such a success and reached the milestone of 400 stores across the UK. At Deliveroo we want to play our role to help people get the food and household items they need and want in as little as under 30 minutes.”
