Delivery services are closely connected to the foodvenience trend. That’s why Valora is introducing shopping solutions in the area of e-commerce and delivery in addition to the autonomous store initiative. The delivery service avec now, already available in Zurich, will now also operate in Basel from Wednesday, 9 March 2022.
While avec now in Zurich delivers from the Hardplatz avec store, Valora in Basel is testing its own storage facilities as the order departure point. Valora is confident this will add efficiency to the warehouse logistics. In addition, the staff can focus fully on processing orders.
Households and offices in the city of Basel and Binningen will receive their orders, which can be placed Monday to Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., in basically just 15 minutes by e-bike. There is no minimum order, and delivery costs are CHF 2.90 per purchase. To celebrate the start, the first 200 orders will receive a mystery bag.
Orders in Zurich and Basel can now also be placed via the avec now app, available for download from the Apple and Google Play app stores.
The avec now convenience range comprises about 1,700 products and includes smaller purchases, such as items that people suddenly find they are missing (top-ups) or impulse buys (cravings) that must be delivered quickly.
