Sainsbury’s has updated its delivery service so shoppers can get groceries delivered in no time. The retailer has teamed up with Uber Eats for the speedy service.

With the demand for home delivery increasing this year, supermarkets have been forced to update their services.

Sainsbury’s recently announced it would increase the number of delivery slots to 700,000 by the end of this month.

Customers can now place orders for delivery between 6.30am and 11.30pm.

This included home delivery options and click and collect.

As well as more weekly slots going on offer, shoppers can now get items delivered on the same day.

Sainsbury’s has partnered up with Uber Eats to deliver food straight to shoppers’ doorsteps.

Customers can choose from around 1,000 items that will be available on the Uber Eats app.

These will include ready meals, fruits and vegetables and cupboard staples.

Both Sainsbury’s own and leading brand products will be available.

The food items will be delivered contactless and the transaction is cash-free.

Those who order from the app will get deliveries in an average of 25 minutes.

The trial will launch this week in the Sainsbury’s Camden, London store and will offer delivery to those around the area.

The scheme is set to roll out to nine more stores in the next few weeks.

If successful, it could be available in more branches across the UK.

Sainsbury’s director of eCommerce Nigel Blunt stated: “We are doing everything we can to find new ways to serve even more of our customers with online grocery deliveries.

“Complementing our Chop Chop fast delivery service, which delivers groceries to customers within 60 minutes, working with Uber Eats will offer another way for customers to get Sainsbury’s groceries delivered to their door quickly, conveniently and safely.”

Uber Eats General Manager Toussaint Wattinne added: “I am delighted to be partnering with Sainsbury’s in the UK.

“This will enable customers to quickly and conveniently order over 1,000 items including fruit and veg, store essentials, and even flowers.

“This partnership will offer even more choices for customers using the Uber Eats app.”

Uber Eat already offers food delivery services in 120 towns and cities in the UK.
