Tesco Introduces Free Drive-Through Supermarket Service to Wilton
October 2014: Tesco Ireland has launched a new drive-through supermarket service at its Wilton store in county Cork, it has been announced. The innovative ‘Click & Collect’ shopping service is free-of-charge and has been introduced to eight Tesco stores since last year.
Aimed at those who have limited time to shop or to wait for a home delivery, the service offers a stress-free method for customers to complete their weekly shop. Customers of the Wilton Tesco store who order their groceries online now have the option of collecting their shopping from the store without having to leave the comfort of their car.
The service now allows customers to order groceries online (http://www.tesco.ie/clickandcollect/) and choose a two hour collection window to pick up their shopping from the drive-through collection point at the Wilton store. Turnaround time for a collection is expected to be less than five minutes on average. All products are picked on the day of collection and safely stored until customers arrive.
Speaking about the announcement, store manager at Tesco Wilton, Conor Lynch said: “The Tesco Click & Collect service is now free of charge to all Wilton shoppers and offers customers a quick, easy and convenient shopping experience that fits with their busy lives. The Click & Collect service was introduced at Clare Hall in Dublin last year and the continued roll-out of this service underlines our commitment to multi-channel retailing. Tesco is focused on combining digital and physical services to make life easier for customers. We now offer this drive-through service in eight of our stores and are determined to continue to grow this offering to customers across the country.”
To use the service, customers within the Click & Collect catchment simply select the option on the Tesco website, place their grocery order online, and select a two hour time slot and pick-up from their local collection point. The Wilton Click & Collect point is located just inside the store entrance. Customers pull into the allocated car parking spaces and Tesco colleagues will deliver their order directly to their car.
