Spar has launched a new partnership with Deliveroo

The latest in Deliveroo’s tie-ups will allow customers to purchase a range of more than 2,000 Spar food and drink products to be delivered in as little as 20 minutes.

The partnership will begin operating from 66 Spar stores with plans to roll out the service to the rest in due course.

It will cover both independent and company-owned Spar stores across England, Scotland and Wales.

Spar said that the tie-up will help them expand their customer base and rely less on footfall traffic alone.

Spar UK strategy and operations director Lee Johnson said: “We are thrilled to be partnering with Deliveroo. 

“This deal will enable Spar 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, Spar stores around the UK extended their service to communities by providing a variety of ecommerce 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 Spar stores by partnering with Deliveroo.

“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.”

Deliveroo chief business officer for UK and Ireland Carlo Mocci added: “Spar is a familiar and welcome sight in many local neighbourhoods and this partnership brings even more choice and convenience to people’s doorsteps.

“Deliveroo 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.”
