Southern Co-op expands same-day delivery to Isle of Wright

The Southern Co-op is set to expand its same-day delivery service to the Isle of Wright, creating eight new jobs in the process.  

The retailer has expanded the initiative and added several new locations to its service following a successful trial run in the western postal areas.  

It hopes to make the scheme available to the entire island by September 13.  

The store currently has over 3000 products available for delivery, with the most popular items including Isle of Wright milk and free-range eggs.

“So far the trial of our home delivery service has gone well after initially starting in Chichester and Portsmouth,” Southern Co-op retail buying and services manager Matt Elliot said. 

“We know our convenience store colleagues offer their communities a great personal service so we’re aiming to replicate this with quick deliveries and a phone call to talk through any changes to their order. 

“So far this has gone down well as we’ve seen a number of repeat customers.” 

Snappy Shopper head of group development Andy Batt added: “We are thrilled to extend our service on the island and give shoppers on-demands access to thousands of products in their local Southern Co-op store. 

“Post lockdown the demand for home delivery is greater than ever and via our app islanders can receive home deliveries seven days a week.”
