Retailers are considering stepping up their delivery services following the adoption of similar services this year by multiple food and drink chains.
Discounter Aldi announced last month it was launching an online alcohol delivery service for more than 20 spirits. Meanwhile, Marks & Spencer has been trialling a delivery service for its food and drink this year.
Harj Gill, who runs Select & Save The Windmill in the West Midlands, is near to an Aldi, alongside other competition.
“We already run a free delivery service for orders over £10. It’s mainly used by the elderly. It’s something I’d consider increasing, but it’s difficult for convenience in terms of cost and manpower. However, it’s the way retail is going,” he said.
