Customers are required to place an order for a minimum of £15

Heart of England Co-op has struck a deal with rapid delivery provider Snappy Shopper.

The online grocery service went live this week from the society’s 35 stores and aims to deliver orders within 30 minutes to an hour.

Shoppers across Coventry, Warwickshire, south Leicestershire and Northamptonshire can chose from a range of 1,000 products. These include frozen, chilled, bakery, fruit and vegetables, meat and dairy, baby, confectionery, alcohol, cigarettes and lunchtime meal deals.

Some stores including its Allesley, Hinckley and Southam sites are also offering a click & collect service to shoppers within a five-mile radius.

“The pandemic has changed the way many customers are shopping and ordering from the comfort of their homes,” said Heart of England Co-op food division GM Steve Browne.

“With the change in consumer behaviour, we wanted to be able to provide a service to new and existing customers during this time.

“The new convenience delivery service has been very well received by residents in Wellesbourne and in the Allesley area of Coventry where we have been trialling.”

The service is available Monday to Saturday from 8am to 9pm and on Sundays from 10am to 3.30pm.

Customers are required to place an order for a minimum of £15 and the delivery charge is £3.

“Moving into delivery seemed like the next natural step for our society, but to move straight into same-day delivery through our partnership with Snappy Shopper will be of huge benefit to our customers,” Browne added.
