The Woolworths delivery tactic set to change the way you shop

Shoppers keen to avoid long queues and an arduous trip to the supermarket for just a few items can now benefit from a new delivery service.

Woolworths’ Sydney and Melbourne customers in eligible areas can now select up to 30 items from their local store range and have it delivered to their front door in under two hours.

The express service, which is available between 9am and 7pm seven days a week, will set you back an extra $19. It adds to the existing online shopping delivery service which can be scheduled days in advance.

Thirty-five stores across the two cities now offer the service after it was first trialled in Sydney last year.

“We’ve seen strong customer interest in our ultra convenient, on-demand grocery delivery service in Sydney and we’re pleased to expand the pilot to 15 stores across Melbourne,” Woolworths General Manager for Digital Innovation Faye Ilhan said.

Ms Ilhan said the service is set to be especially popular with younger couplers and time-poor parents who struggle to find time for grocery shopping.

“Many orders centre around an emergency item or two, like nappies, cold and flu supplies, or even snacks to entertain at short notice, and end up filling out with top ups of milk, bread, fruit and vegetables.

While their immediate focus is on the Sydney and Melbourne stores, Woolworths are looking at expanding the service into other states.

Express Delivery is now available to customers within four kilometres of the following stores:
