With many people unable to go out shopping because of illness or lockdown restrictions and supermarket delivery slots rapidly filling up, four French supermarket brands have begun offering one-hour deliveries of a limited number of items.
Carrefour and Casino supermarkets have teamed up with UberEats, while the chains Franprix and Monoprix are partnering with Deliveroo to offer delivery of smaller orders to the home within one hour – although at present the service is generally only on offer in cities.
More usually concerned with delivering takeaways, Deliveroo and UberEats have branched out to offer the new service via their websites.
There are some limitations to the new service though.
Firstly it's not available everywhere.
