Deliveroo Expands Its Services In Ireland To Include Grocery Deliveries
Deliveroo has announced that it is expanding its services in Ireland to include grocery deliveries to help people get the supplies they need during the COVID-19 crisis.
The food delivery firm has signed deals to deliver groceries from a number of Spar, Londis, Mace, Fallon & Byrne outlets in Dublin. Deliveroo has also partnered with Higgins Off Licence in Dublin, O'Neills Wines in Limerick, and ARC Wines and Vineyard in Belfast.
Deliveroo Ireland general manager Michael Healy stated, "Alongside our work with restaurants, we have been working hard with off-licence partners such as Spar, Londis and Mace to make it easier for customers to get access to day-to-day food and household items quickly as they limit trips outdoors."
The new service will allow people to order items from the grocery stores that have partnered with Deliveroo via the food delivery firm's app.
Deliveroo recently launched a smilar service in the UK.
Contact Free Deliveries
Deliveroo employees will leave orders outside customers' front doors for collection to keep deliveries contact free.
The company said, "Deliveroo has made efforts throughout the COVID-19 crisis to ensure that food and convenience delivery can be conducted safely. All deliveries will be contact-free, so riders do not hand deliveries over to customers, but leave them outside their door for collection."
