Grocery delivery service

Booker has teamed up with rapid-delivery service Just Eat to offer customers home delivery in 25 minutes. 

The partnership, across Londis, Premier, Budgens and Family Shopper, will now mean retailers can offer shoppers a range of fresh food, everyday essentials, drinks and tobacco with Just Eats as its preferred partner. 

Just Eat’s strategic accounts director, Amy Heather, said: “Consumers are increasingly looking to have anything and every­thing delivered to the door – not just their favourite takeaway. That’s why con­venience stores are among the fastest-growing sec­tors for delivery.” 

Just Eat began offering an on-demand grocery service in 2021 when it launched a partnership with Asda. It now offers more than 1,500 lines of grocery products through One Stop and Central Eng­land Co-operative

The announcement of the move by Booker follows the expansion of a similar partnership between Co-op and Uber Eats. Under plans that will be rolled out by the end of this month, customers will be able to order from a range of 6,000 products from around 1,000 Co-op stores. “Fast and flexible op­tions online are important to shoppers, too, so we can meet customers’ needs by using our stores located in the heart of communi­ties to provide rapid home deliveries,” said Chris Conway, Co-op’s ecom­merce director.
