Kettering shoppers will get groceries to their door after Co-op joins Just Eat
Shoppers in Kettering will soon be able to have their groceries delivered to their door from Central England Co-operative after it extended its partnership with the delivery app Just Eat to more of its stores.
The move comes after an explosion in demand following the initial rollout of the scheme across 10 stores in February. Occupation Road in Corby was among the initial trial stores.
This second stage will see a rollout of the partnership to 20 more stores across central England, including the Hallwood Road store in Kettering.
Co-operative Shoppers can choose from more than 2,000 items using the Just Eat app which are then picked and packed at the nearby store by local colleagues before being delivered to them via Just Eat’s network of delivery drivers. The partnership between the store chain and delivery app came about as demand for on-demand grocery deliveries rose in the UK.
Just Eat Takeaway.com’s also wants to expand and build its extensive existing delivery network, including convenience grocery operations.
Claire Koziol, Head of Stores at Central England Co-op, said: “We’re excited to be extending our partnership with Just Eat to give our customers and members in even more locations an easy way to get their groceries delivered to their door in quick time. We are committed to making it as easy as possible for our customers to shop with us and this partnership gives us the opportunity to not only provide another option for our communities but also work with a recognised and respected brand in home delivery.”
Andrew Kenny, Managing Director UK at Just Eat, said: “We’re excited to further expand Just Eat’s grocery offering.
“With over 60,000 restaurant and grocery partners on the Just Eat platform and an extensive delivery reach across 97% of all UK postcodes, this partnership with Central England Co-op marks the next stage in Just Eat’s commitment to delivering the best service and range of options for our customers.”
