Same-day deliver with Dis-Chem

Dis-Chem Pharmacies has announced the launch of its same-day on-demand delivery service, offering delivery within 60 minutes, and giving customers access to a wide range of 7 000 items across health, nutrition, beauty, cosmetic and electrical products.

The launch of Dis-Chem’s DeliverD service will be trialled in selected stores across Johannesburg and other major metropolitan areas before being extended to other regions aligned to Dis-Chem’s footprint.

Initially, a limited range of front shop products – health, nutrition, beauty, cosmetics, electrical and baby ranges – will be available during the trial pilot phase.

“Dis-Chem DeliverD complements our existing online offering,” says Saul Saltzman, executive director at Dis-Chem. “This development taps directly into understanding what our customers want, central to which is convenience. We have seen significant on-line growth in the past 12 months and the on-going customer demand for quick, same-day on-line service was a key driver behind the introduction of this offering.”

Saltzman says delivery times will depend on customer needs, location and availability of slots.  The trial phase will give loyal Dis-Chem customers the opportunity to try the service and provide feedback which, in turn, will allow Dis-Chem to refine the offering.

“We foresee the trial phase being a partnership with our customers so that we can ultimately bring the best possible experience and we welcome feedback so that we can refine and improve this service,” Saltzman says.
