As the so-called 'Big Four' supermarkets come under increasing pressure from online giant Amazon's forays into the UK grocery market, Sainsbury's has responded by trialling its own one hour home delivery service.
The 'Chop Chop' delivery service is currently available to customers living within a three kilometre radius of the Sainsbury's store in Wandsworth, south London.
For a delivery fee of £4.99, shoppers can use an app that they download to their iPhones or iPads to order up to 20 items for home delivery within an hour.
The service is similar to Amazon's Prime Now service, which was launched a year ago and is now available to 30 percent of people in the UK. Available only to Amazon Prime members, the service offers one hour delivery on over 15,000 items for £6.99.
