Asda and Deliveroo partnership Manchester 2022: which stores will be involved in new on-demand grocery service

The partnership is to launch later this month

Asda Supermarket has taken a step forward into the world of on-demand groceries, and customers around Eccles Asda in Manchester could be some of the first to benefit.

Asda and Deliveroo have joined forces to deliver on-demand groceries to households across the UK, as the partnership launches in 15 Asda stores, including here in Manchester.

The roll-out begins this month, with households in Wakefield, Leeds and Manchester amongst the first to choose from over 2400 products from the Asda range - from plasters to birthday cakes - and have them delivered to their door in minutes by Deliveroo’s network of riders.

Here’s what has been announced about the new partnership, and how customers can get involved.

Ambitious plans to launch 300 Asda stores on the Deliveroo platform by the end of the year will further increase the number of delivery options the supermarket has available.

Customers shopping via the Deliveroo app will also be able to select from a range of everyday products that have been price matched to offer the best possible value across household essentials such as tea bags, breakfast cereal and frozen peas.

Teatime is the most popular time for Deliveroo customers to place their grocery orders, with a top-up shop and meal building products amongst the items ordered most often.
