Planet Organic aims to deliver

Organic and speciality food chain Planet Organic has partnered with on-demand courier firm Street Stream to offer its customers same-day delivery across London.

Customers in the city can now order their groceries and home products to be delivered on the same day or a chosen day in precise one-hour time slots, as late as 6.30pm for delivery before 10pm during the week or by 4.30pm for delivery before 8pm on weekends.

Each order is hand-picked by in-store staff at Planet Organic Westbourne Grove and customers will be charged a fixed rate for delivery based on their postcodes proximity to the store. A fixed delivery fee of £9.50 or £15 will be charged depending upon location.

Alternatively, customers can order online and collect their prepared orders from their nearest Planet Organic store free of charge.

“Since the first Planet Organic store opened in 1995 we’ve worked hard to offer the best and widest range of organic foods available – but this commitment also extends to ensuring we offer the very best service to our customers both in-store and online,” says Peter Marsh, CEO of Planet Organic, commenting on the new service.

“More than half of all our online orders come from within London postcodes and so being able to offer convenient delivery of delicious and healthy organic food is something we are delighted to bring to our customers through our partnership with Street Stream.”

Planet Organic automatically gives preference to bicycle couriers in order to keep the environmental impact of deliveries to a minimum.
