Planet Organic launches same-day delivery for Londoners

Planet Organic has partnered with courier firm, Street Stream, to offer same-day delivery across London.

Peter Marsh, CEO at Planet Organic, says: “Since the first Planet Organic store opened in 1995, we’ve worked hard to offer the best and widest range of organic foods available. But this commitment also extends to ensuring we offer the very best service to our customers both in-store and online. More than half of our online orders come from within London postcodes and so being able to offer convenient delivery of delicious and healthy organic food is something we are delighted to bring to our customers.”

Customers can place orders (one hour time slots are on offer) until 6.30pm on weekdays for delivery before 10pm that evening. On weekends, orders arranged by 4.30pm are eligible for delivery before 8pm. This will cost either £9.50 or £15 depending on location. Alternatively, customers can order online and collect from their nearest Planet Organic store for free. All packaging will be made from 100% recycled materials and preference given to bicycle couriers for added green points.

James Middleton, Founder of Street Stream, says: “Precise time slots and flexible delivery options have become an expectation as customers require more timely delivery options that fit around their lifestyles. This expectation has been fuelled by same-day delivery becoming the new industry standard set by big retailers like Amazon and Argos, but there’s no reason why independent retailers can’t compete which is why we started Street Stream. Through our service Planet Organic can vet, rate and pick its own team of couriers trusted to deliver its customers’ orders - and we can’t wait to get started.”
