SPAR UK launches quick commerce partnership with Deliveroo

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

Customers will be able to get items delivered to their door by Deliveroo in as little as 20 minutes.

From today, 66 SPAR stores are available from Deliveroo, with the ambition to onboard as many independent and company owned stores as possible. 

SPAR’s southwest regional wholesaler, Appleby Westward, has the roll-out underway and currently has 50 stores available on the service.

SPAR UK Strategy and Operations Director, Lee Johnson, says: “This deal will enable our 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, our stores around the UK extended their service to communities by providing a variety of e-commerce delivery and call and collect solutions to local consumers.”

“We are looking to accelerate this trend and cater to even more customers in the vicinity of our stores by partnering with Deliveroo.”

He adds: “Our partnership with Deliveroo will enable us to reach more customers, meet their 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.”

Carlo Mocci, Chief Business Officer UK&I, Deliveroo, comments: “SPAR is a familiar and welcome sight in many local neighbourhoods and this partnership brings even more choice and convenience to people’s doorsteps.”

“Our customers can choose from a huge range of groceries, food, little luxuries and daily essentials and SPAR is a welcome addition for households across the UK.”
