As it ramps up its online focus, Belgian retailer Delhaize is to use its independent affiliates to test same-day fulfilment on eGrocery orders. The pilot, which involves five outlets under the AD Delhaize and Proxy Delhaize fascias, will see the satellite stores added to the existing collection point network. Shoppers can choose same-day pickup or schedule a collection time within a seven-day window. Orders will be collated within the stores themselves. One advantage of the scheme is that it allows for collections to be made on Sundays, depending on the opening hours of the relevant outlets.
