A same-day grocery delivery provider has teamed up with Lidl Ireland to offer home grocery deliveries and full personal shopping services to over 86,000 Cork households.

Buymie has also announced the creation of 200 personal shopping roles across the country in response to demand for same-day grocery delivery, 50 of which are earmarked for Cork.

CEO and co-founder of Buymie, Devan Hughes, said that the expansion into Cork will mean that Buymie is available to around 2m people across 750,000 households in Ireland and the UK and that the remainder of the year and 2021 “will see rapid expansion in the same-day delivery channel as consumers confront a new reality for the foreseeable future”.

Regional director for Lidl in Munster, Conor Nagle, said: “Cork is a very important market for Lidl and we continue to invest heavily in the county with a new store being built in Kanturk and an application lodged for Blarney in recent weeks.”

The service will go live on Friday and will be available for six Lidl stores in Cork including Ballincollig, Wilton, Togher, Churchfield, Ballyvolane and Glanmire.
