McColl’s, the UK convenience retailer, has today announced a new partnership with Deliveroo to offer home delivery of convenience goods.
A range of daily essentials from over 120 McColl’s stores will be available on-demand for the first time on the Deliveroo app. This will expand to cover 300 McColl’s stores right across the country.
This partnership is a significant move to make sure customers can still access the food and toiletries they need from the safety of their home, especially the elderly and vulnerable.
Customers will be able to purchase everyday items from the Deliveroo app and have items delivered safely to their doorstep on-demand, in as little as under 30 minutes. Deliveries will be ordered through the Deliveroo app and fulfilled by the Deliveroo rider network within 30 minutes, as normal. All deliveries will be a contact-free service ensuring the safety of customers.
The partnership will allow customers to order a wide range of different convenience products on Deliveroo, including groceries, soft drinks, confectionery, snacks, beer, wine, toiletries, and household goods.
At this challenging time, McColl’s and Deliveroo want to support neighbourhood communities all over the country, providing a range of essential household items straight to people’s doorstep. This partnership will help customers, particularly the elderly and vulnerable in isolation and unable to leave their homes, to access the food and toiletries they need.
Jonathan Miller, chief executive of McColl’s, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Deliveroo at this important time. We want to make it as easy as possible for our customers to get their daily essentials as they stay at home. The partnership allows us to further our support of the neighbourhood communities we serve, providing the option of home delivery for a wide range of quality goods from our stores across the country.”
Ajay Lakhwani, vice president of new business, Delivero, said: “Deliveroo is proud to partner with McColl’s and deliver household items straight to people’s homes in as little as under 30 minutes. McColl’s has an excellent operational track record and together we can achieve national scale at pace. This is particularly important during COVID-19 when people are isolating and at home, especially the elderly and vulnerable. This partnership will help reach people right across the country.”
