SPAR signs GB partnership with Deliveroo

SPAR UK has signed a new partnership deal with Deliveroo covering all 2,160 SPAR stores in England, Scotland and Wales.

The arrangement gives SPAR stores the opportunity to meet rising consumer demand for on-demand delivery, with Deliveroo customers having access to around 2,000 food and drink products from participating SPAR stores, delivered to their door in as little as 20 minutes.

From today (22 June), 66 SPAR stores are offering a Deliveroo service, with the ambition to recruit as many independent and company-owned stores as possible.

SPAR’s southwest wholesaler Appleby Westward already has 50 stores involved and is rolling it out to other SPAR customers.

SPAR UK strategy & operations director Lee Johnson said: “This deal will enable SPAR stores to continue their rapid expansion into on-demand delivery. Local communities are at the heart of SPAR and our mission is to provide shoppers with choice and access to essential items.

“During the years of the pandemic, SPAR stores around the UK extended their service to communities by providing a variety of e-commerce delivery and call & collect solutions to local consumers. We are looking to accelerate this trend and cater to even more customers in the vicinity of SPAR stores by partnering with Deliveroo.

“Our partnership with Deliveroo will enable us to meet ever-changing shopping habits and drive significant revenue uplift for stores. As our visibility on the Deliveroo platform grows, so will the opportunity for us to differentiate from our competitors,” he added.
