Buymie, Ireland’s leading 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.
Earlier this year, Buymie announced the creation of 200 additional personal shopping roles for Ireland in response to demand for same-day grocery delivery. Fifty of these jobs have been earmarked for Cork (if you’re interested in applying for a Buymie personal shopper role, click here).
CEO and co-founder of Buymie Devan Hughes said, “We’re absolutely thrilled to be announcing our official launch into Cork with our retail partner Lidl Ireland. This expansion will mean Buymie is available to around two million people across 750,000 households in Ireland and the UK. 2020/21 will see rapid expansion of the same day-delivery channel as consumers confront a new reality for the foreseeable future.”
Conor Nagle, Regional Director for Lidl in Munster, added, “Over the past few months, our teams across the country have kept the shelves filled and served millions of customers every week. Given that not everyone is in a position to visit their local Lidl at present, we are delighted to extend the Buymie service to six stores in Cork city, ensuring thousands of shoppers have access to the incredible value that Lidl offers in a more accessible way.”
The service will go live citywide this Friday 28th August, and will be available through six participating Lidl stores: Ballincollig, Wilton, Togher, Churchfield, Ballyvolane and Glanmire.
Buymie’s same-day grocery delivery is currently available to all households in Dublin and large commuter towns such as Greystones, Maynooth and Howth. The service has seen huge success over the past 18 months as it brings an entirely new approach to online grocery shopping and delivery for consumers.
Buymie provides a premium personal shopper service, with shoppers trained in selecting only the freshest and highest-quality produce available. Customers are able to note specific preferences on their orders, and can opt-in for a personalised call from their shopper in-store, if items are out of stock. Unlike traditional eCommerce solutions, Buymie is able to deliver on the same day and can fulfil orders in as little as one hour.
Users of Buymie’s app can select a grocery store, the products they wish to purchase, and a convenient delivery slot. Buymie customers have no limitation on basket size and access to full assortments of food products. A personal shopper is then appointed, allowing for seamless communication during the shopping process.
