Delivery services using the platform have gone live in a number of Spar stores across Dundee, Aberdeen, Glasgow, Inverness, Uddingston and Ayr.

Snappy Shopper already works with over 300 Spar stores across the UK, with AF Blakemore having extended its agreement in recent weeks. The platform is specifically designed for the convenience sector, offering 30-60 minute grocery delivery at instore pricing.

Colin McLean, ceo at Spar Scotland distributor CJ Lang, said: “Spar stores are playing a very important role in local communities around the country by helping the vulnerable and those who are self-isolating. With the addition of the Snappy Shopper app, it will make our Spar stores even more convenient by us being able to quickly deliver essential items to consumers without them ever leaving their homes.”

Mark Steven, ceo at Snappy Shopper, added: “No other platform has the functionality that our platform offers – this functionality drives incremental new sales for our top stores in excess of £10,000 per week under normal trading conditions, with our top-performing store achieving £39,800 in a single week during the Covid-19 crisis. We are absolutely delighted to be partnering with Spar Scotland, further enhancing our national Spar relationship”.
