As a result of coronavirus Asda has seen the number of online orders double. The supermarket is aiming to have one million online delivery slots next year.

The supermarket will add more than 300,000 delivery slots to its UK offering.

There will be 40,000 added this year and more than 200,000 the next.

Currently customers can order from 10 stores using Uber Eats.

Now this will be rolled out across another 25.

Additionally, the click and collect service is being reinstated in 300 stores.

Internet Retailing reported Roger Burnley, Asda’s chief executive and said: “The pandemic has created a structural shift in customer behaviours towards grocery shopping.

“We have accelerated our online capacity expansion to meet levels we had anticipated reaching in eight years within a matter of weeks and we will continue to expand this offer.”

A number of supermarkets have been overhauling their delivery offering in the wake of coronavirus.

Morrisons groceries are being sold on Amazon for same day delivery in a new move from both companies. 

The full range of Morrisons products is now on the Amazon website.

To qualify for the same-day delivery service, you still need to place an order of over £40.

The service will run alongside Morrisons’ own grocery deliveries from its website, which is fulfilled in a partnership with Ocado.

Tesco delivery has been changed too, with cheaper fares ditched. 

Now all slots cost £4.50, except for some unlucky addresses, where they will cost £5.50. Deliveries under £40 will be hit with a £4 surcharge.

Martin Lewis’ website advises it if you shop at least twice a month with Tesco.

It offers free delivery and free click & collect for either £7.99 a month or £47.94 for six months.
