The app will be made available to stores which are part of the UWS network, including its chain of 500 Day-Today and USave shops, and around 1,000 independent stores.
Chris Gallacher, managing director of UWS said: “Scotland’s convenience stores are at the heart of their local communities, and throughout the coronavirus pandemic we have continued supplying them to ensure they can provide groceries for their customers.”
“With the addition of the DrinkSorted app, it will make our retailers even more convenient for customers with quick delivery of essential items without them ever leaving their homes,” he added.
