A drive-thru grocery service is being rolled out at 135 SuperValu stores around the country.

Supermarket group Musgrave is planning to build special drive-thru booths, in the style of the model used by fast-food chains.

According to the SuperValu website:

“Customers can also be confident in the knowledge that their shopping has been carefully picked and packed by SuperValu’s expertly trained online pickers – encouraging customers to simply pull up to the new drive through bay and have their shopping brought out and placed in their car.”

The Business Post reports that the service will aim to give customers a contactless option to pick up groceries.

Musgraves say the demand for online shopping increased by 400 per cent during the peak of the pandemic.
