SuperValu have launched the first in Ireland ‘Drive Through’ service in Carrigaline, Co. Cork, it’s at Collins SuperValu on the Main Street. The new service allows customers to place orders online and then pick up their shopping without having to enter the store by using the drive through facility at the store.
SuperValu customers who shop online currently have the option of getting their shopping delivered to their home or picking it up themselves. Now, in addition to collecting their goods instore, busy mums, time strapped dads and older shoppers can now enjoy added convenience and pick up their weekly shop without leaving the comfort of their car. Customers can also be confident in the knowledge that their shopping has been carefully picked and packed by SuperValu’s expertly trained online pickers – encouraging customers to simply pull up to the new drive through bay and have their shopping brought out and placed in their car.
Commenting on the launch Martin Kelleher, Managing Director of SuperValu, said “We are delighted to launch our first ever Drive Through service in Carrigaline. This is the first of its kind in Ireland and we hope to roll this out to a number of stores by the end of the year. We realise that many of our customers have a very busy lifestyle or may find it difficult to come instore, and this convenient service will save them time and effort when it comes to doing the necessary weekly shop”.
To avail of this service, all customers will need to do – after ordering online – is press the intercom button at the drive through and state their name and order pick up number to customer services.
