Co-op rolls out app allowing eco-friendly home deliveries in less than 1 hour

Over 100 Central England Co-op stores are now offering eco-friendly home deliveries in under one hour. The retailer’s ongoing link with Snappy Shopper allows customers to order their co-op shop via a dedicated app and have it delivered to their door within the hour.

Shoppers choose items using the app which are then picked and packed at a nearby Central England Co-op store by local colleagues before being delivered to them via a special electronic vehicle.

The service is now available from selected stores in the following areas: Birmingham, Sutton Coldfield, Derby and parts of wider Derbyshire, Lichfield, Fradley, Alrewas, Nottingham, Kettering, Stafford, Burton and wider East Staffordshire, Leicester and Leicestershire and parts of Suffolk.

The app also allows for people to click and collect their shopping from nearly 50 stores.

Delivery driver Faye Baseggio said, “We are delighted to be able to help make shopping as easy and convenient as possible for customers so they can get what they want, when they want it direct to their door or at the click of a button.”

Customers ordering via the Snappy Shopper app have access to over 5,000 products including everyday groceries, alcohol and snacks and are able to request delivery within the hour seven days a week.
