Marks & Spencer is expanding its partnership with Deliveroo enabling customers stuck at home to order from over 140 stores.
In March the grocer announced that it was offering online delivery of its food for the first time in its history amid a new partnership with Deliveroo.
High demand for home deliveries during lockdown has encouraged the retailer to further expand this the number of stores offering grocery delivery from around 120 to 142.
M&S said it was also significantly expanding the product range available to order through Deliveroo’s app to 130 products, adding a range of prepared meals, fruit, vegetables, soft drinks, alcohol and toilet roll.
The expansion will now see customers in Belfast, Birmingham, Canterbury, Cardiff, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Newcastle and Solihull, among other new locations, order groceries for delivery in “as little as 30 minutes”.
“At Deliveroo, we want to do everything possible to help people get the food they want and need during this worrying period,” Deliveroo’s founder and chief executive Will Shu said when the partnership was launched in March.
“We hope we can play a role in supporting people who have to isolate to get the food they need, whether that’s household items or restaurant food.”
The delivery giant, which is currently in the midst of a troubled tie-up with Amazon, is also launching a new range called “Essentials by Deliveroo”.
This range will feature similar essential goods like pasta, rice, tinned goods and household products for families struggling to reach stores due to self-isolation.
