Tesco launches Shetland home delivery service

Tesco has launched a home delivery service for customers in Shetland for the first time. It is operated out of Tesco’s store in Lerwick which has been extended and it has taken on three specially adapted Mercedes vans.

The remoteness of the islands mean that a trip to the Lerwick supermarket can take and hour in each direction.

The retailer is also launching a Click Collect service. It said a total of 30 full and part-time positions had been created as part of the scheme.

Slots for delivery in Lerwick, Scalloway, Burra and the South Mainland are available seven days a week, North Mainland and Muckle Roe 4 days a week, and the West and Central Mainland four days a week.

The vans will travel from the store in Lerwick as far as Sandvoe and Isbister in the north, to Virkie and Sumburgh in the south, and to Walls and Sandness in the west. The service is expected to be extended later this year to include deliveries to the outer isles.
