Lovers of Woolies’ quality and service will be delighted to hear that the retailer has decided to launch its own same-day delivery service. It made this announcement via social media on Monday, 23 November 2020.
Called “Woolies Dash”, the retailer promises the service will deliver groceries within the hour. It did not, however, provide details on when the service will launch or which areas it will service.
Recently, competitors Pick n Pay and Checkers also launched similar delivery services.
Pick n Pay partnered with online grocery service Bottles to bring customers what they need. However, as Bottles was not permitted to sell alcohol during the strict lockdown earlier this year, the app had to be re-purposed for on-demand groceries instead of liquor.
Checkers has its Sixty60 app, which was launched in 2019. The service allows customers to accept a delivery within 60 minutes, or alternatively at a time that best suits them. Users can pay using a credit or chip-enabled debit card and shoppers can track their order throughout delivery with real-time GPS tracking.
