German retailer Tegut has expanded its grocery delivery service via Amazon Prime to greater Mainz and Wiesbaden.
It is the seventh region after Darmstadt, Frankfurt, Kassel, Würzburg, Marburg and Gießen, where the two companies have collaborated for the service.
Thomas Wingenfeld, Amazon project manager at Tegut said, “We are very pleased that the cooperation with Amazon works so well and is accepted by the customers. As an innovative company, we know that the living and working habits of our customers have changed in recent years and that we have to meet their needs in this constantly changing environment.
“We are therefore responding accordingly by focusing very successfully on an omnichannel strategy and giving our customers the opportunity to buy their daily groceries online in addition to their stationary, traditional shopping in the supermarket."
The retailer reported a turnover of €1.25 billion in its financial year 2021, marginally down (0.46%) on the turnover recorded the preceding year.
The service allows shoppers to purchase products via amazon.de/tegut or with the Amazon app and avail of same-day deliveries, within a two-hour window, from Monday to Saturday between 10:00 and 20:00.
The minimum order value for the service is €20 and shoppers are required to pay €3.99 for orders under €50.00.
The retailer is also offering all first-time customers a gift bag until 9 February.
In August of 2020, Tegut teamed up with Amazon Prime Now to launch the service in greater Darmstadt and Frankfurt South.
