Co-op launches online delivery in Central England

Central England Co-op has signed a partnership with Snappy Shopper to deliver online groceries from 141 local stores in the Midlands and East Anglia.

Customers in the region could have groceries delivered to their homes in 30 minutes.

The number of stores operating with Snappy Shopper will rise to 200 by the end of 2021.

Trials began in September 2020 with 15 stores in Derby and Birmingham.

Consumers ordering via the Snappy Shopper app have access to more than 5,000 products including everyday groceries, alcohol and snacks and are able to request delivery seven days a week via an electric vehicle.

All prices will be the same as in store with a flat delivery charge of £3 on all orders.

“Our work with Snappy Shopper has always been about putting the values of our communities first and this is why we are delighted to have extended our offer together to over 140 stores across several counties,” said Andy Peake, chief commercial officer at Central England Co-op. “Recent times have really showed us all the benefits of being able to shop local with a trusted, community focused retailer and our ongoing link-up with Snappy Shopper is a great example of how we are improving the shopping experience for our customers and members by the click of a button.”
