Buymie has announced the launch of a major new partnership with Dunnes Stores. Buymie, Ireland’s leading same day grocery delivery platform, and Dunnes Stores will launch a personal grocery shopping service to over 680,000 households in both Dublin and Cork.

The service, available in 24 Dunnes Stores across Dublin and Cork, will allow Dunnes Stores customers to select groceries and book a same day delivery slot. The Buymie app, calculates the available customer delivery slots as soon as the customer gets to the checkout. Slots are available on the same day, and often in as little as 1-hour. Customers can also choose their preferred delivery slot up to 7 days in advance.

The partnership gives Dunnes Stores customers access to their own personal shopper. Buymie shoppers will by default call the customer from the store and let them know if items are out of stock, and offer alternatives. Even if a customer can’t find something they’re looking for on the app, they can add a special request at checkout for their shopper, who will look for and add the items where possible.

Devan Hughes (pictured), CEO and co-founder of Buymie, said: “I am thrilled to be announcing this partnership with Dunnes Stores, and to be bringing such an iconic Irish brand online in grocery for the first time. In fact, back in 1976 at the age of 16, my father James Hughes, got his very first job working for Ben Dunne Snr in North Earl Street. So for me, this is an exciting extension of that family history.”

“Dunnes Stores is a tremendous innovator in Irish retail and we are delighted to be working with them to bring same-day delivery to their customers across Dublin & Cork,” Devan Hughes added.

Earlier this year, Buymie announced the creation of 200 additional personal shopping roles for Ireland in response to demand for same-day grocery delivery.

The partnership brings immediate scale to the Dunnes Stores online offering with the service now available, from today, to over 592,000 households in Dublin and large commuter towns such as Maynooth and Howth. The service is also available to over 88,000 households in Cork city.

To access the service, users can download the Buymie app from the Apple iOS app store, or from the Google Play store onto a mobile device. Once registered, customers can select to shop for groceries within the Dunnes online grocery store. Buymie customers have no limitation on basket size and access to the very best of Dunnes Stores product range. A personal shopper is then appointed, allowing for seamless communication during the shopping process, and ensuring the best substitutions and highest quality fresh produce are selected.

Co-Founder and CEO, Devan Hughes, is a finalist of the 2020 EY Entrepreneur Of The Year, nominated in the Emerging Category of the awards. The results will be announced in November 2020.
