Sainsbury's and Deliveroo are expanding their delivery partnership nationwide, following a successful trial in 10 stores.

100 stores to offer grocery delivery from Deliveroo app

Sainsbury’s and Deliveroo have signed a two year contract, which will provide shoppers the option to order grocery items via the Deliveroo app from 100 stores nationwide, including in Liverpool, Newcastle, Leeds, York, Aberdeen and Glasgow.

According to the two companies, 30% of people in Deliveroo zones could now access more than 1,000 products from Sainsbury’s and have them delivered in as little as 20 minutes.

“A super-fast service”

Sainsbury’s director of ecommerce Nigel Blunt commented: “Working with Deliveroo has helped us offer home grocery deliveries to even more customers, bringing them a super-fast service when they need something in a hurry.

We know how much Sainsbury’s customers value being able to shop for food as quickly and conveniently as possible and we’re delighted to be able to expand this service further.”

Eric French, chief marketplace officer at Deliveroo, added: “Deliveroo’s on-demand grocery partnerships have proven vital for so many people during the pandemic, allowing families to get the food and household items they need and want quickly.”
