Shell stores join Uber Eats app for 24-hour delivery as shoppers turn to home delivery for everyday groceries

Groceries, everyday essentials and Jamie Oliver Deli items from Shell service stations will now be available for delivery exclusively on Uber Eats.

From today, customers can order items from 183 Shell locations nationwide, including London, Manchester and Glasgow, with a further 158 Shell stores set to join the app in the coming months.

Over 250 of the Shell stores joining the app are available for orders 24 hours a day as Uber Eats caters to a burgeoning audience for grocery delivery. In the last year, grocery on Uber Eats has grown by 400% despite the lifting of lockdown restrictions.

In the last three months alone, the app has seen nearly 90,000 orders for bananas, over 120,000 orders for loaves of bread and over a quarter of a million pints of milk.

Shell service stations are home to stores and popular brands including Little Waitrose at Shell, Budgens, Jamie Oliver deli by Shell as well as Shell’s own Select convenience stores – products from all these will be available to customers as part of the new offering. More than 750 items  from fresh fruit and veg to ready-made food and treats to household and cupboard essentials will be delivered safely to customers’ doors in as little as 30 minutes.

Sunjiv Shah, general nanager of Uber Eats in the UK, said: “As demand for grocery and essential items continues to soar on the Uber Eats app, we’re delighted to bring Shell to the app as an exclusive partner.”

Bernie Williamson, GM of retail in the UK at Shell said: “We’re thrilled to be launching our stores on the Uber Eats app. With Uber Eats, we’re able to reach even more customers and expand our delivery services across the UK. We offer our customers convenience on-the-go and with this new collaboration we can now also offer a wide selection of food and essentials, available for delivery to your door in less than 30 minutes.”

Uber Eats ensures that every courier can access the PPE they need for free to deliver to customers safely. As well as providing sanitising products, Uber Eats has also supplied couriers with over one million masks.
