Australian Supermarket chain Woolworths Group has expanded its Delivery Now service to offer grocery deliveries to more than 300,000 customers across Brisbane, Queensland.
The service is currently available from six local supermarkets, including Ascot, Ashgrove, Bulimba, Camp Hill, Paddington and Spring Hill.
Customers can now place orders for up to 30 items from a portfolio of more than 12,000 products. They can also track orders on a live map using GPS technology via their mobiles.
Woolworths’ personal shoppers will hand pick all the products in store, with the delivery made through a dedicated last-mile delivery partner. The company is offering the service for a flat delivery fee of $19.
The Delivery Now service is currently available from 38 supermarkets across the Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane areas.
Woolworths ecommerce general manager Annette Karantoni said: “Customers tell us they want more convenient shopping options and we’re working to meet these needs.
“Delivery Now offers customers fast, reliable and effortless grocery delivery in under two hours. It’s ideal for top up shops of everyday essentials when customers are pressed for time.
“Customers also find it useful for emergency items like nappies, cold and flu medicine, or snacks for entertaining at short notice. Whatever the need, we’re pleased to help our Brisbane customers save time with another ultra-convenient way to shop with us.”
The supermarket chain also plans to expand the service further to more Queensland stores and currently offers same day delivery for orders placed before 11am, as well as a free same day pick up service at all stores.
Last week, the Australian supermarket chain announced plans to close 30 underperforming Big W stores over the next three years following a strategic review.
