Waitrose extends 2-hour delivery trial

,

Waitrose is to extend its rapid delivery trial to Bath and Hove plus 58 additional London postcode areas.

Deliveries are carried out by On the dot within two hours of ordering. Customers can order up to 25 grocery items from a choice of 2,000 products. There is a £10 minimum spend and a £5 charge applies for using either service.

The service was launched in September last year and now covers 98 postcodes.

Customers can choose to receive their shopping within two hours or to specify a one-hour time slot.

The Bath service will start on 8th July, while Hove will launch on 15th July. The service will also be made available in Battersea, High Street Kensington, Bayswater, Victoria and Kingston.

Head of business development Nicola Waller said: “There is a growing number of customers who want to get their shopping as and when they want it which gives us a great opportunity to continue testing the appetite for the service in new locations both inside and outside of London.”
