Tesco is primed to take on AmazonFresh

Tesco has announced its same day click-and-collect service in a bid to get ahead in the growing competition of food retailers speeding up delivery services.

This announcement follows strong figures from Tesco whose market share loss has slowed to 0.4 per cent after, along with most of the Big 4, losing swathes of their share to Lidl and Aldi.

AmazonFresh offers its Prime members same day deliveries on a range of grocery items, and in light of recent losses the major supermarkets are pushing to ensure they are prepared to compete with the online giant.

Tesco has announced today it would offer same day click-and-collect service in 300 of its largest stores across the country.

Customers who make an order before 1pm will be able to pick up their items after 4pm. The service will cost £2 to book a two-hour collection period on weekdays and £3 on weekends.

Sainsbury‘s also announced recently that it will be trialing a same day delivery service in three of its major stores, which could expand to up to 30 if successful.

A spokesperson for Tesco said: “We know time is valuable to our customers and they expect more convenience and choice than ever before in how, when and where they do their grocery shopping.

“Our same-day grocery click and collect service is available at nearly 300 stores across the UK and means our customers can get their shopping at a time and location that is convenient for them.”
