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.
