Co-op partners with Uber Eats

Co-op has announced it is partnering with Uber Eats as part of the retailer's plans to expand its on-demand online home delivery service.

Co-op customers will be able to order online home delivery via the Uber Eats app from about 1,000 Co-op food stores by the end of September.

"As a convenience retailer, we know the ability to pop into a local Co-op will always be important to customers, but we also know that fast and flexible options online are important to shoppers too - and so by using our stores located in the heart of communities to provide rapid home deliveries, we can meet customer needs and make shopping easier, however, wherever and whenever our Members and customers choose to shop with us," said Chris Conway, Co-op e-commerce director.

The move comes weeks after the company extended its delivery partnership with Deliveroo for a further three years.

As part of the extension, Deliveroo will operate its delivery service across a further 110 stores by the end of the year, bringing the total number to 1,400.
