Tesco expands speedy delivery to Manchester

Tesco has announced it is extending its on-demand grocery partnership with Gorillas to Manchester, UK.

According to The Grocer, customers living near the Big 4 grocer‘s Stretford Extra branch will now be able to order supermarket products via the Gorillas app and receive their order “within minutes”.

The delivery app already has a presence in Manchester, with a dark store serving the Piccadilly and New Islington area.

“Through our partnership with Gorillas, we can be even more convenient to our customers, helping them with last-minute Tesco products delivered in minutes,” Tesco innovation director Tom Hebbert said.

“Customers have responded really well to the first two sites in Thornton Heath and Lewisham and we look forward to bringing this service to our customers in Manchester.”

The move is the first regional launch of the “co-located partnership”, which was first launched in October last year in Thornton Heath and Lewisham in London.

Gorillas UK general manager Christopher Chaaya added: “This pioneering move will provide Mancunians with well-loved Tesco favourites at their fingertips, from the Gorillas app to the doorstep in minutes.”
