A CHAIN of local stores with four outlets in York has partnered with Deliveroo to make home deliveries.
McColl’s, which has stores at Hamilton Drive in Holgate, Gale Lane in Acomb, Crichton Avenue in Clifton and Moorcroft Road, Woodthorpe, hopes the service could prove particularly useful for seniors and those isolated due to COVID- 19.
A range of daily essentials from over 120 McColl stores will be available on request for the first time on the Deliveroo app. The expansion will extend to 300 McColl stores across the country.
Deliveries will be ordered via the Deliveroo app and made by the Deliveroo network of runners within 30 minutes, as usual. All deliveries will be contactless.
Jonathan Miller, CEO of McColl’s, said, “We are delighted to partner with Deliveroo at this important time. We want our customers to get their daily essentials as easily as possible while they are at home. The partnership allows us to strengthen our support for the neighborhood communities we serve, by offering the possibility of home delivery for a wide range of quality products in our stores across the country. “
Ajay Lakhwani, Vice President of New Business, Deliveroo said, “Deliveroo is proud to partner with McColl and deliver household items directly to people’s homes in less than 30 minutes. McColl’s has an excellent operational track record and, together, we can achieve national scale at the pace. This is especially important during COVID-19 when people are isolated and at home, especially the elderly and vulnerable. This partnership will help reach people across the country. “
