Spar UK has signed a new partnership deal with Deliveroo which will cover 2,160 stores in England, Scotland and Wales.
The partnership will provide shoppers with more choice and access to essential items from Spar stores nationwide, which will be delivered to doors by Deliveroo in around 20 minutes.
The move would allow Spar to meet the rising consumer demand for on-demand delivery, offering Deliveroo customers access to 2000 food and drink products from participating stores.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Deliveroo. This deal will enable SPAR stores to continue their rapid expansion into on-demand delivery. Local communities are at the heart of SPAR and our mission is to provide shoppers with choice and access to essential items,” Spar UK strategy and operations director Lee Johnson said.
“During the years of the pandemic, SPAR stores around the UK extended their service to communities by providing a variety of e-commerce delivery and call & collect solutions to local consumers. We are looking to accelerate this trend and cater to even more customers in the vicinity of SPAR stores by partnering with Deliveroo.”
Johnson added: “Our partnership with Deliveroo will enable us to reach more customers, meet their ever-changing shopping habits and drive significant revenue uplift for stores. As our visibility on the Deliveroo platform grows, so will the opportunity for us to differentiate from our competitors.”
Currently, Spar’s southwest regional wholesaler has rolled out Deliveroo services across 50 of their stores including Spar Cobden Bridge Southampton, Bethal, St Austell, Bemerton Heath, Salisbury, Mina Road, Bristol and Falmouth.
Deliveroo chief business officer UK and Ireland Carlo Mocci: “SPAR is a familiar and welcome sight in many local neighbourhoods and this partnership brings even more choice and convenience to people’s doorsteps.”
“Deliveroo customers can choose from a huge range of groceries, food, little luxuries and daily essentials and SPAR is a welcome addition for households across the UK. ”
