ASDA Halbeath has been chosen as one of 96 stores to offer a one-hour express delivery service.

The store will launch the service after a successful trial in four English stores.

Customers living within a three-mile radius of the Dunfermline supermarket will now have access to the retailer’s full online range of more than 30,000 grocery products for delivery within the hour.

Shoppers are able to order up to 70 items, however, the cost for each delivery will be £8.50 regardless of how many goods are ordered.

The supermarket also extended its partnership with Uber Eats recently to more than 300 stores, although the number of products available is far smaller.

If the latest stage of the rollout is successful, bosses hope to expand it further.

Simon Gregg, Asda’s vice-president of online grocery, said: “We are rolling out our express delivery service to almost 100 stores after a trial showed there was a clear gap in the market for a speedy delivery service offering our full online product range for delivery within one hour.

“As the only grocer to offer this service, we have seen a significant number of customers access this option, with slots regularly selling out at our pilot stores.

"We anticipate more demand for this flexible service now that many of our customers have returned to their place of work and children are back at school.”
