SuperValu in Merchants Quay Shopping Centre in the city has launched a home delivery and store collection service.
With an increasing demand for online grocery shopping during the Covid-19 crisis, the new delivery and collection slots at SuperValu stores across Cork are being snapped up as soon as they are released.
SuperValu Merchants Quay was added to the new service on Friday and now has two vans on the road delivering essential shopping to the most vulnerable in the community and to those who are self-isolating.
The store is delivering to customers in areas including Dillons Cross, Montenotte, St. Luke’s, Sundays Well, Tivoli, Bishopstown, Douglas, Maryborough, Togher and Wilton.
SuperValu have introduced social distancing measures, sanitising guidelines and plastic liners for crates for the safety of customers and staff members and drivers will deliver the customers shopping outside their homes.
Those who require help with their shopping can add a note to their online order requesting assistance and drivers will bring the shopping indoors while observing social distancing guidelines.
To make an online order from Merchant’s Quay, log onto SuperValu.ie, register or log in, choose delivery or click and collect and order online, select SuperValu Merchants Quay, choose an available slot to add items to your trolley and check out.
A click and collect service is also available where customers can order their groceries online to be collected at a time that suits.
Store collection is contactless and customers can call the store from the dedicated park and pick up area at the riverside entrance of Merchants Quay Shopping Centre and a member of staff will bring the shopping to the car.
Store Manager at SuperValu Merchants Quay, Andrew Fallon, said: “We are delighted to announce these new services to help support our customers in this time of need.
“We are acutely aware of the number of people who are self-isolating or elderly and physically can’t come in store, and our new Home Delivery service will greatly benefit the people in our community.
“We hope that this offers some reassurance to people over the coming weeks that we are here for them and will support in any way we can,” he said.
