Carrefour Polska has announced the expansion of its partnership with Glovo, a quick-commerce delivery service, to offer delivery in under an hour to additional cities. This quick-commerce service, which was initially available in major cities like Warsaw, Gdańsk, Poznań, and Kraków, is now extended to approximately 69 locations, including Tomaszów Mazowiecki, Zgorzelec, Tczew, Puławy, and Pszczyna.
Through this partnership, Carrefour Polska provides a wide range of products to customers via the Glovo app. Shoppers can choose from a selection of approximately 20,000 SKUs, including food, home accessories, textiles, DIY tools, school stationery, pet supplies, and sports accessories.
Marek Garus, Director of E-commerce Operations and Development at Carrefour Polska, commented on the collaboration: “Q-commerce has been conquering the Polish market since the pandemic. We are aware that consumers buying in our online store and those using delivery applications are often completely different target groups. By entering into cooperation with Glovo, we can provide new customers with the best-quality products every day, in a very short time.”
Carrefour operates nearly 900 stores in various formats throughout Poland, including supermarkets, hypermarkets, local stores, and an online store.
According to Carrefour, around 79% of Internet users in Poland choose online stores, with 44% of them purchasing food products through online channels. This aligns with the growing trend of online grocery shopping in the country.
In 2020, Carrefour teamed up with Glovo to offer both food and non-food products, catering to the needs of online shoppers. This service is now available in 168 supermarkets and hypermarkets across 113 cities in Poland.
Carrefour has reported positive sales figures, with an 11.2% increase in like-for-like sales during the first half of the year. The company also saw a 10.3% rise in like-for-like sales in the second quarter alone.
The expansion of the Glovo partnership aligns with Carrefour Polska’s strategy to meet the evolving needs of its customers in an increasingly digital and convenience-focused retail landscape.
