Channel Islands Co-op launches online shopping

Customers at the Channel Islands Co-operative can now order groceries online.

The company will be using Guernsey and Jersey Post for its internet food delivery service in Jersey and Guernsey after a successful trial during lockdown. Both are aiming to deliver orders within 24 hours.

At the height of lockdown, the Co-op was the first Channel Island's retailer to distribute essential food items and household products directly to homes.

5,000 products will be on offer online and anyone looking to purchase age-restricted products will need to verify their age with the age verification app, Yoti.

The company says Co-op members will still receive their dividend through the new initiative and the service "will develop over time."

Jersey Post will run the new food delivery service, independently from its postal operations, saying it will 'utilise a dedicated fleet of vans'.

IsleDeliver in Guernsey say they will operate independently from Guernsey Post and also have their own dedicated fleet of specialist, refrigerated vans.
