Deliveroo announces M&S partnership

Deliveroo has announced it will begin delivering a range of Marks and Spencer groceries to those who are self-isolating at home amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The takeaway delivery service signed a deal with Marks and Spencers that will now enable them to deliver essential items to families from participating stores across the UK.

The newly-launched service will be available from 120 franchise stores found at BP service stations, and no delivery fee will be charged on any orders.

Deliveroo also announced it will begin to roll out a new service, entitled ‘Essentials by Deliveroo’, which will enable the delivery of tinned goods, pasta and household items. 

It went live in Cambridge on Wednesday and will be introduced in Reading, Brighton, Nottingham, Manchester, Leeds and London over the course of the next two weeks.

The new services closely follow Deliveroo’s recent deal with the Co-op Group, introducing almost 400 of its stores on the app. Families can now order groceries from the supermarket chain from all participating sites.

Deliveroo chief executive, Will Shu, said: “At Deliveroo, we want to do everything possible to help people get the food they want and need during this worrying period.

“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.”
