Written by Skywave Radio News on June 17, 2020
High-end Lancashire supermarket chain Booths has launched a new on-demand delivery service for its shoppers.
Booths, which has its headquarters in Preston, has teamed up with Deliveroo, allowing customers to order more than 300 essential household items from its stores.
The service went live yesterday (June 16) at the Booths store at MediaCity in Salford.
Lancashire shoppers wont be too far behind, with plans to launch at a further six stores in July.
Four of these are in Lancashire at Fulwood and Penwortham as well as St Annes and Lytham on the Fylde Coast.
The Altrincham and Hale stores in Greater Manchester will also have the service from July.
All deliveries will be contact-free to ensure safety, with Deliveroo riders leaving the deliveries at customers’ doors to collect, minimising person-to-person contact.
The aim is to make deliveries as quick as under 30 minutes.
Some of the items available include:
- Sourdough seeded rolls
- Lemon drizzle loaf cake
- Peroni, Nastro Azzurro 5.1%
- Cadbury Dairy Milk
- Ben & Jerry’s Cookie Dough ice cream
- Penne pasta
- Pork and apple sausage
- Booths mature cheddar
- Morphetts milk semi-skimmed
- Colgate toothpaste
- Heinz ketchup
- Booths bathroom tissue
- Kelloggs’ Crunchy Nut Cornflakes
Abby Talbot, Head of Business to Business at Boothsy, said: “Booths are very excited about our link up with Deliveroo, which will bring a wider delivery reach for over 300 products for customers.
“Delivery with Deliveroo will start at our Media City stores, with Fulwood, Penwortham, St Anne’s, Hale Barns and Lytham starting deliveries in early July.
“This service will offer quick and convenient delivery with Deliveroo and will help our customers unable to shop at Booths to access our great range of groceries.”
Ajay Lakhwani, Vice President of New Business at Deliveroo, said: “At Deliveroo, we want to do everything possible to help people get the food they need and want during COVID-19.
“Booth’s selection is unique and our partnership will help us service not only Booth’s loyal customers, but a much wider set of people across Greater Manchester.”
