The one hour delivery Chop Chop service run by Sainsburys has been extended to five more boroughs in London.
Sainsburys did a pilot of the Chop Chop service in Pimlico and Wandsworth, but has now announced it is to be rolled out to customers anywhere in Zones 1 and 2.
In a statement, the company said: “Sainsbury’s was the first UK supermarket to trial an on-demand, one hour, grocery delivery service last year; giving customers a new way to shop. Now the retailer will extend its trial to add over 70,000 more postcodes to the service catchment area. This takes its total reach to over 1.7 million customers, giving Sainsbury’s the largest reach of UK retailers offering a one-hour delivery service.”
Under the Chop Chop scheme, customers can order up to 25 items via an iOS or Android app. They will have the goods delivered to them by moped or bicycle within an hour for a flat fee of £4.99.
Clodagh Moriarty, Director of Online at Sainsbury’s, commented: “We’re delighted the trial of our Chop Chop delivery service in Wandsworth and Pimlico has proven to be such a success. Our ambition is to help our customers live well for less and saving them time by offering one-hour delivery is one way we’re doing just that.
“We were the first UK supermarket to introduce one-hour delivery last year and this roll-out will give us the largest reach to shoppers across London. It’s an exciting time for our customers and we hope to see continued success of Chop Chop within these new boroughs.”
