Coop and Posten deliver groceries in Norway
Grocery chain Coop and postal company Posten Norge have launched grocery home deliveries in Norway. The two companies have partnered to deliver groceries to those who can’t go to stores during the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions.
In record time, Coop has set up an ordering solution on its website Coop.no. And thanks to a cooperation agreement with Posten Norge, online grocery shoppers can have their order delivered to their door step.
‘We have a responsibility to help others’
Coop is part of the national food security and says it has a special social responsibility to help anyone who is now barred from shopping groceries as they were used to. “In the same way, Norway Post and Bring have a socially critical role when it comes to supplying the whole country with parcels, mail and goods”, Posten Norge (Norway Post) explains.
“We’re all in the middle of an extraordinary situation and we want to help those who have to stay at home”, CEO Geir Inge Stokke of Coop Norway says. “That’s why we have worked very hard to launch a simple ordering solution for our customers as quickly as possible. In the future, it will be under continuous development when it comes to usability, product selection and payment and delivery solutions.”
In the future, it will be under continuous development.
First tested in Oslo, soon available across the country
The solution has been tested in the Oslo area and is now also available in Stavanger and parts of Western Norway. Eventually, it will be made available to Coop’s customers throughout the country.
