Deliveroo now offers a ‘grocery’ store tab to help us with those Covid-19 related social distancing goals.
Service providers under that category include NRTC Fresh, who offer a nutritious selection of fruit and vegetables; Petzone – cause you don’t want your little fluffy buddy to go hungry do you; and The Dessert Shop, because self-isolation is better with ice cream. But the biggest bit of news is a new venture called Essentials by Deliveroo, operating out of their Business Bay and JLT Editions kitchens.
The Essentials store ships items like toiletries, milk, cereal, pasta, rice, canned goods, cooking oil, drinks and snacks, from the depot straight to your door. Average order times are only 24 to 50 minutes. They’ve hoarding-proofed it too. Online shoppers can select only a limited number of each item (usually two).
For the time being Essentials by Deliveroo is only available in the Business Bay and JLT catchment areas, although some of the other grocery stores like NRTC Fresh are available over a wider area.
Both delivery options are open daily until midnight.
