Tesco – same day delivery for 99% of UK

Tesco customers across the UK will soon be able to use the grocery company’s same day grocery delivery service.

The grocery giant released a statement that said this makes them “the first retailer to offer nationwide same day grocery delivery”.

The same day delivery service offered by Tesco was first offered in London and the South East in 2014. Tesco, the largest UK based supermarket chain is being offered to more than 300 stores, “covering over 99% of UK households”.

Tesco customers can order by 1300 to have their shopping delivered from 1900 onwards and can receive an unlimited number of items per delivery. It cost between £3 and £8 per delivery, but is free to members of the Delivery Saver online membership scheme.

One of the key trends in online shopping is same day deliveries. Tesco has seen this too, with the same day delivery service seeing an 18% growth in demand so far this year in the region in which it operates.

Earlier this year Tesco also extended its Same Day Click+Collect service to 300 locations across the UK and – as previously reported by Post&Parcel, it has been rolling out its new Tesco Now service in London.
