MORRISONS and Deliveroo are teaming up to enable customers to order from a selection of 70 household items which can be delivered on demand.

From April 8, the two companies' new service will allow customers to have items dropped off on their doorstep within 30 minutes of placing the order.

The service will remain in place for the duration of the Covid-19 crisis

In an effort to ensure that customers can access essential items at affordable prices throughout the coronavirus pandemic, items will be priced the same as Morrisons stores and there will be a flat £4.99 delivery fee (unless customers have the Deliveroo Plus service).

Ajay Lakhwani, Vice President of Deliveroo, said: “With families and vulnerable people in isolation, it is more important than ever that we make sure they have access to the essential household items they need.

“During this worrying period we want to play our role in making sure people have access to a range of items, in particular the vulnerable who cannot leave their homes.”
