Dunnes Stores appears to be making its first, tentative steps into grocery delivery having developed an app to do just that from one of its flagship Dublin outlets.
The grocery retailer has launched an food delivery app – Dunnes Stores Cornelscourt – to allow customers order food to be delivered from the company’s store in Cabinteely, Dublin 18.
The app is powered by Flipdish, a food-ordering start-up that has positioned itself as an alternative to online fast-food delivery aggregators such as Just Eat and Deliveroo.
Flipdish co-founder and chief commercial officer James McCarthy said the company has also developed a website for the project, fooddelivery.dunnesstores.com.
This departure for the retailer means customers can order a minimum of €20 worth of goods to be delivered to their home for a €3 delivery fee. It is understood that fee is waived for more expensive orders.
There are about 231 products on offer through the service and Dunnes Stores, rather than Flipdish, will make the delivery.

The service is available Monday to Saturday 8am-8pm
