Staff at Peterhead’s Asda store are preparing to launch the new Click and Collect service which aims to make shopping easier for customers.
The service acts as a ‘drive-thru’ for customers who have ordered their shopping online - all they have to do is go to the collection point situated in the car park and a member of staff will bring out their shopping.
Store manager, Grant Mchardy, said: “A lot of our customers commute to Aberdeen and they might get home late or need to pick up the kids and shopping is the last thing they want to do.
“With Click and Collect, they can order their shopping online at home or at work and pick it up whenever it suits them.”
The pick-up service is free and scheduled to begin on Wednesday, September 18, but shopping orders can be taken via asda.com from this Saturday (September 14).
The first customer to use the service will be given a hamper.
Asda also has a new in-store Click and Collect terminal, where customers can order anything from Asda Direct with free next day delivery to the store or for a small charge to their homes.
Community collegue, Jordanne Gallagher, said: “It will be ideal for Christmas shopping and getting items that aren’t in-store here.”
Jordanne recently took on the in-store community role to help Asda play its part in supporting the local area.
Grant added: “We supported a number of charity events over the summer by providing free water and rolls for barbecues and groups can come here to collect money via bag packing and can collections.
“Last year we raised £40,000 for local charities.
“Community groups can use our training room and canteen as a meeting point for free. If anyone would like to use our facilities, please get in touch by phone or drop in a letter to Jordanne.”
The store would also like to congratulate staff members, Aileen Turriff and Glynis Mortimer, on 30 years service.
Grant said: “You don’t hear of people working in the same place for so long, but 30 years is fantastic.”
