SuperValu has adjusted to new ways of shopping during COVID-19 by expanding the reach of its online shopping services to include two more Fingal stores.

With online grocery shopping at an all-time high, delivery and collection slots are in high demand in SuperValu stores across the country.

To cope with this growing demand and to ensure that customers can shop safely, SuperValu is now bringing its Click and Collect Service to six new stores in Dublin, including Supervalu stores at Rush and Donabate.

The service allows customers to select their groceries online in advance of their trip. Once they have finished shopping, their order will be hand-picked with care by SuperValu staff and safely packed away to be collected at a time that suits. This helps customers maintain social distancing and spend less time outside their home.

The SuperValu Click and Collect Service is contactless - customers simply park outside, call the store and their shopping is brought directly to their car.

In addition to Click and Collect, the SuperValu stores in Rush and Donabate are also offering a Home Delivery Service.

For the ongoing safety of customers and staff members, SuperValu continues to adhere to social distancing measures, sanitising guidelines and plastic liners for crates, so customers don't need to worry - their shopping will be dropped to their door with adherence to all safety protocols.

SuperValu drivers will deliver customers' shopping to outside their home but will not enter the premises. Elderly or disabled customers can add a note to their online order requesting assistance, in which case SuperValu drivers will bring their shopping indoors while observing social distancing guidelines.

Eavan Keane, Head of eCommerce at SuperValu said: 'We are delighted to announce that more collection and delivery services are now available to our valued customers during this incredibly difficult time.

'As online shopping demand continues to grow, our retailers have worked quickly and put structures in place to meet this demand and these additional six new stores will allow us to significantly increase our capacity.

'Our customers and their communities are the most important thing to us at SuperValu, and we are committed to ensuring that the most vulnerable in our society can shop safely and with their mind at ease.'
