The retail giant announced the increase on 8 July.
To meet demand during the third wave in Gauteng especially, Pick n Pay increased delivery slots on its online platform in the province by 65%.
“We have moved quickly to add delivery slots – particularly in Gauteng – to make sure that we respond to increased demand for online shopping during this time,” Retail Executive of Omnichannel, John Bradshaw, said in a statement.
In addition, Pick n Pay rolled out additional capacity in certain areas in Cape Town.
