Iceland makes major change at over 200 stores – and shoppers will be happy | The Sun

ICELAND is making a major change in over 200 stores that will please plenty of shoppers.

The frozen food supermarket has announced a partnership with Just Eat meaning some customers will get their groceries to their door.

By the end of April, 5,000 Iceland products will be available on Just Eat for shoppers living in London, Manchester, Belfast and Leeds.

Across Iceland and The Food Warehouse the chain has over 1,000 UK stores, but Just Eat delivery will be available to around 200 of those.

You'll be able to order items including Iceland's own brand range, everyday essentials and fresh and frozen produce.

The Sun has asked Iceland whether prices will remain the same as in stores, and we'll update when we know more.

Which Iceland stores are closing down?

Some other shops do charge more for food delivery than in store, so do keep that in mind.

The store has confirmed plans to expand delivery locations as the year goes on.

Deliveries are expected to arrive in 30 minutes or under once you've paid, but that will depend on how far away you live from your nearest store.

To check, you can find your closest branch using Iceland's store locator on its website.

Amy Heather, director of strategic accounts at Just Eat, said: “Our partnership with Iceland is a big step in our grocery delivery journey in the UK, bringing even more convenient grocery options to our customers. 

"Iceland is a brand that champions local communities with stores on high streets across the whole UK and we’re excited to partner with them to deliver groceries to meet the demands of even more households looking for fast, convenient grocery options.”

You'll need to use the Just Eat app if you're after Iceland delivery.

It's free to download and you'll just need to enter a few quick details to get set up.

And remember added fees on top – delivery costs on Just Eat range from 50p to £1.99 depending on how much you buy, and there may be a minimum charge when you order from Iceland.

You can already order from over 2,500 UK grocery and convenience stores using Just Eat including Asda, Sainsbury's and Co op.

However, these will be subject to where you live depending on what branches are close by.

Elsewhere in Iceland, the supermarket announced it was shutting some stores this month.

There are three yet to shut – South Street in the Isle of Wight, St Catherine’s Place in Bristol and Deiniol Centre in Bangor.

These are all closing within the next few days.

But it's not all doom and gloom – Iceland usually opens more than 20 new stores each year.

Last year, there were a total of 24 new store openings.
