Deliveroo has partnered with a number of with well-known Irish convenience stores to deliver groceries, so customers can shop locally without the need to leave the home, to reduce the risk of COVID-19.
Essential food and household items such as bread, milk, butter, dry and tinned goods, along with alcohol, are available to order via its app from over 21 convenience stores, which will be delivered in as little as under 30 minutes, the company said.
“Alongside our work with restaurants, we have been working hard with off-license partners such as Spar, Londis and Mace to make it easier for customers to get access to day-to-day food and household items quickly as they limit trips outdoors," said Michael Healy, general manager, Deliveroo Ireland.
All deliveries, will be contact-free, so its 1,000 riders do not hand deliveries over to customers, but leave them outside their door for collection, the food delivery firm said.
Deliveroo said last month that it has partnered with retail outlets in the UK such as BP petrol stations to enable customers to order approximately 60 products from 120 M&S franchised stores on forecourts for delivery.
