The Co-op makes online food delivery service move

Better late than never. The Co-op Group is launching a grocery delivery service, kicking off with a trial in London.

This will be offered via shop.coop.co.uk, and follows a trial of autonomous robot deliveries in Milton Keynes and a taxi service at eight other UK stores.

The new offering will initially be available to shoppers within a four kilometre radius of a store on the Kings Road in Chelsea, before being rolled out to eight more London outlets. Orders will be fulfilled by e-cargobikes.com.

There is a standard £5 delivery charge and a £15 minimum spend. Customers can receive their orders within two orders of placing them and a free Click and Collect offering will also be available. “This is an exciting time for the Co-op, with trials underway on a number of new online initiatives,” says Chris Conway, Head of Food Digital. 

“As the leaders in convenience shopping, we want to look at different ways of bringing our award-winning products closer to shoppers, and this new service does exactly that.”
