Dischem launches same-day delivery service
Dischem has launched a same-day on-demand delivery service for users of its app for certain regions around the country.
The service, named DeliverD, will be available through the existing Dischem app. However, during the trial phase, it will be limited to customers within 10km of certain stores in metropolitan areas.
The DeliverD service offers delivery within 60 minutes of Dischem products across its health, beauty, cosmetic, electrical, and nutrition categories.
But the company noted that they are not offering medication delivery during the trial phase.
For that, customers should use the Pack My Meds service.
“Dis-Chem DeliverD complements our existing online offering, and this development taps directly into understanding what our customers want, central to which is convenience,” Saul Saltzman, executive director at Dis-Chem, said in a statement.
“We have seen significant online growth in the past 12 months and the ongoing customer demand for quick, same-day online service was a key driver behind the introduction of this offering.”
