Major convenience symbol group operator, Costcutter has done a national deal with Uber Eats to enable its 1,500-plus member stores to tap into the delivery service on beneficial terms. The announcement follows a regional trial across London and the South East in which participating retailers saw sales boosted by £1,500 a-month through the delivery app.
Wide range of grocery products to be made available
Costcutter retailers signing up to work with Uber Eats will be able to offer a breadth of range through it, including essentials, such as bread and milk, as well as meal for tonight options and alcohol. Costcutter will be running a series of roadshows for retailers to build awareness and communicate best practice on how to maximise the opportunity of rapid delivery that Uber Eats provides.
Sean Russell, Marketing Director, Costcutter commented:
'We've responded to strong demand for real-time delivery and taken the lead in convenience to give our retailers another point of difference in a highly competitive sector. Our partnership with Uber Eats is a great way to reach new customers and demonstrates our continued commitment to helping our independent retailers thrive.'
