Costcutter has struck a deal with takeaway delivery app Uber Eats, marking the tech company’s first foray into grocery delivery.

The convenience store chain, which has 1,700 shops across the UK, will partner with Uber Eats to deliver everyday grocery staples such as milk, butter and bread, following an extensive trial in London and the South East.

According to the retailer, stores participating in the trial saw an average of £1,500 added to monthly retail sales.

Costcutter managing director Sean Russell said: “With 28% of food and groceries now purchased online in the UK, our partnership with Uber Eats is a great way to reach new customers and demonstrates our continued commitment to helping our independent retailers thrive.”
