You order online, we’ll deliver!

Online shopping service at Fleming’s SuperValu

An online shopping service which was launched some months ago at Fleming’s SuperValu in Roscommon town is proving extremely popular.

  The service could not be simpler to use. Simply click on the store’s website (www.supervalu.ie) and then click on the county town’s store and you can commence shopping straight away!

  Your products will then be delivered to your home for a cost of just €5; and there is no charge for orders in excess of €100. Alternatively, you can arrange to collect them from the store by selecting the ‘click and collect’ icon!

  While the novel service is popular with all age groups, it is particularly beneficial for older people in the community, some of whom can find it difficult to get to ‘town’ on a regular basis. There is much anecdotal evidence of family members ordering items for elderely relations.

  “Probably the first time doing it, is the most time-consuming,” said Shane Fleming, of Fleming’s SuperValu. “But, once you have done it once, the system will even remember your favourite products.”

  Shane said that, although some people might have concerns about allowing someone else to “do their shopping”, such reservations are unfounded.

  “The people who pick for us are operating as if picking for themselves,” he said. “They always pick the best dates and the best quality.”

  Deliveries take place throughout the day, on an hourly basis from 11 am to 7 pm, Monday to Saturday.

  Shane added that the ‘click and collect’ option was also popular. “Many of our customers arrange to collect their items on their way home from work on Friday evenings for example” he said.

  “It saves them having to spend half an hour in the store doing their shopping. They just go into the store, collect their items – they’re all ready for them – and bring them home!”
