E.Leclerc Begins Delivery Service In Slovenia
French retailer E.Leclerc has expanded its online platform in Slovenia through the creation of a delivery service.
This complements the click-and-collect service offered by the supermarket chain in the Eastern European country, which operates two collection points, in Rudnik and Moste.
For its food delivery channel, it has enlisted parcel distributer DPD Slovenia, part of the DPDgroup. The company delivers 3.6 million parcels in over 230 countries daily.
Igor Jakovljević, managing director of the Slovenian delivery firm, said, "This service presents a number of challenges to us, which are warmly welcomed in our company, and is considered as the next logical step and upgrade to our product portfolio.
“We are aware of how exhausting shopping can be at this time of the year. Home delivery of products will at first be limited to Ljubljana and surrounding area, but if necessary the delivery area will be expanded. We are happy to offer this service to our clients and save them some valuable time.”
The E.Leclerc Drive initiative was first launched in 2014.
The online store currently has 16,000 customers, who can select from more than 10,000 products.
