Supermercato24, the first Italian same-day delivery service for online grocery, has announced an important partnership with LIDL, one of the leading grocery retailers in Italy. The partnership with Supermercato24 will allow Italian LIDL customers to shop their favourite grocery store straight from home and have it delivered at their doorstep on the very same day, even within one hour.
With this innovative partnership, LIDL is choosing Italy as one of the first markets where to leverage a marketplace approach, as the platform allows customers to choose their preferred store among the ones nearby and to pick products from the largest online catalogue in Italy: this will make available a variety of more than 4.000 products, with a wide range of private label ones (85% of the whole assortment).
The collaboration between Supermercato24 and LIDL, combining technology with the quality of a personal shopper in charge of the client’s grocery order, will allow both companies to empower their role as key facilitators of modern grocery needs in the Italian market.
“We are very proud to work with a relevant retailer such as Lidl,” said Federico Sargenti, CEO of Supermercato24. “It’s the first time that LIDL leverages the innovative grocery “marketplace” model that is now starting to catch on, and we’re sure this will be a winning factor for the both of us: I think the e-grocery industry is shifting more and more towards collaborations between traditional grocery retailers and tech facilitators like Supermercato24, and we’re glad to lead the way.”
”We’re proud to announce this important collaboration between Supermercato24 and Lidl Italy,” said Massimiliano Silvestri, president at Lidl Italy. “We’ve decided to leverage this new channel as it allows us to reach new customer targets, while being loyal to our own DNA. Through this platform, we’re offering the same quality, convenience and freshness that we always offer in our stores. This is a chance for us to further strengthen our positioning, as well as winning the loyalty of the clients who have been choosing and loving us for years.”
