Sainsbury’s has introduced a new way for Britons to get essential items delivered to their homes in just 30 minutes. This will help those who are struggling to get their weekly shop as a result of the coronavirus lockdown.
Posting on Twitter, Sainsbury’s wrote: “Starting today, we’re rolling out Chop Chop to 20 cities across the country.
“Over 3m households will be able to get Sainsbury’s groceries delivered directly to their door within an hour, offering customers another way to get what they need.”
Customers in London, Brighton and Bristol can use the service right now.
It will be rolled out to Manchester, Reading, Richmond, Morden, Charlton and Harringay next week.
By the middle of June, the service will be offered in over 50 stores across the UK.
How does it work?
The service will aim to help those who are self-isolating and who struggle to get to stores.
Using the Chop Chop app, customers can browse a range of 3,000 essential items and household products.
Chief digital officer at Sainsbury’s Clodagh Moriarty said: “We are doing everything we can to feed the nation and offer our customers quick, convenient and safe ways to get their groceries.
“Demand for home grocery deliveries has never been higher and we have been receiving great feedback for Chop Chop, with customers really valuing the speed and convenience it brings.
“By rolling Chop Chop out to 50 stores in 20 cities across the country, even more customers can get what they need delivered to their door.”
