Online grocery delivery provider Buymie will begin to offer grocery deliveries and full personal shopping services to over 190,000 Galway and Limerick residents from Monday, May 31.

Customers in Galway and Limerick will be able to use the Buymie app to shop online for a range of over 35,000 groceries from Dunnes Stores, Lidl and Tesco.

They can expect to receive the grocery delivery in as little as an hour or choose a selected date and time.

The company is also in the process of creating 60 personal shopping roles to service Galway and Limerick in response to demand for same-day grocery delivery.

Buymie's same-day grocery delivery is currently available to all households in Dublin and large commuter towns such as Greystones, Maynooth and Howth.

The service is also available across Cork's City and suburbs.

In May 2020, Buymie partnered with the UK's Co-op supermaket group and launched the same-day delivery service to over 250,000 households across Bristol and its surrounding suburban area.

The company has grown over 500% from January 2020 to January of this year.

Last June, it closed a Series A funding round of €5.8m in new investments into its business, to take its total capital raised to €10.5m.

Devan Hughes, CEO and co-founder of Buymie, said the company was excited to be announcing its official launch into Galway and Limerick.

"We have seen incredible demand for the Buymie same-day grocery delivery in Ireland and the UK and today's announcement brings the service to thousands more Irish households," he said.

"As we see the light at the end of the tunnel, we are all going to be making up for lost time and using a service like Buymie can give customers the option of taking back those two hours spent in the car, aisles and queues," he added.
