Sainsburys customers at three of its store scan now order takeaway pizzas in a new pilot scheme.
Customers at the three stores will be able to order a pizza of their choice and pick it up 30 minutes later from the store. They can also arrange a time to collect if later than that. Customers will be able to pay by credit or debit card at the counter they are being given the pizza as opposed to joining the checkout queue.
According to Sainsburys the trial is being run at the Redhill and Cambridge Eddington stores, with plans to extend this to a Bradford store next week. The pizza takeaway trial will last 12 weeks and then the results will be considered by the grocery chain with a view to possible national roll-out.
Nicola Goodall, Strategy Executive at Sainsburys commented: “We want to help all of our customers to live well for less and as part of this we’re continually looking at new ways to deliver high quality services that offer faster and more convenient options.
“By giving our customers the chance to pre-order personalised hot pizzas and pay at the counter we are saving them time and giving them a great value takeaway experience. As the UK’s first supermarket to test this service, this is an exciting trial for us to listen and understand how our customers respond.”
