This is not the first time that Coles decided to experiment with their services and the latest is online delivery service through their partnership with Deliveroo, a service that utilizes bicycle. The team up between the two companies provides consumers with an option to have their groceries delivered at home within 30 minutes. This is another example that the online services is expanding as evidence by the number of Melbourne courier companies that are venturing into the industry.
Deliveroois known to mainly deliver food orders from restaurants to their customers. At the beginning of this year, the company started to offer a delivery service of food packs that contain a variety of option for entertainment snacks or barbecue items. They are delivering the food packs to the customers locate in the inner eastern part of Melbourne.
The partnership decided to add another offering to their service last month. Now, customers can purchase basic groceries they need at home such as vegetables, milk, cheese, breads, spread, fruits and meal packs which will be delivered directly to their homes. The meal packs option may include risotto or a pork noodle soup.
Coles decided to use the existing network of Deliveroo in marketing their latest service to the customers. They advertise their new service of home delivery within 30 minutes on the listed products. The network by Deliveroo is composed mostly of contractors that employ scooters or bicycle for their delivery.
This is not the first time that Coles decided to partner with a share economy service. The company is trying to offer a wide variety of their online service as well as home delivery. This is to rival their retail giant competitor, Amazon, which is planning to launch in Australia in the following year.
In the previous month, the supermarket decided to test the service provided by Uber, a company from Silicon Valley, by providing the same day delivery but it was only available at the store in Richmond South. As the online industry continues to flourish, it is expected that more and more Melbourne courier companies will be vying to be the lead in the industry.
The theme of this year’s The Philadelphia Flower Show is “Celebrate the Movies” and will be a tribute to all films produced by Disney.
All Disney props and characters will be interpreted by garden and floral designers rather than replicate them. This means there will be no decorations made of life size images of Disney characters.
The exhibits will be an interpretation of the films. Take for example the exhibit inspired by Mulan which is called Stoney Bank Nurseries made by Glen Mills. In that certain exhibit, audience will see resemblance to the movie Mulan such as the Chinese gardens with more character, reflecting pool which contains ceramic koi, water lilies and iris and sculptured rocks that was made to look like real natural limestone because of the added effects such as etched cavities, smoothed edges and the weathered holes.
According to one of the head of the family business, the Mulan-inspired garden was made to give the audience a feeling of tranquility and to trigger reflections. This is the 36th time that the business has appeared on the Flower Show.
Another exhibit was inspired by the film, Pirates of the Caribbean but with a more modern approach. The exhibit was made by Mark Cook, owns a landscaping business in Doylestown, and it features a treasure-chest bigger than life with overflowing cannons and gigantic palm trees. Cook’s business has been joining the Flower show since 2009.
The Philadelphia Flower Show may be checked out at the Convention Center from March 1 to 8, 2015.
Gene London will also be gracing the Flower Show with his presence and is expected to bring around 50 costumes to the Show which will all be displayed at Room 203. The admission fee to view all the outfits is $5.00. London is known for his passion in collecting movie memorabilia since he was in the early 20s. He is now 83 years old and residing at Hallandale Beach, Fla. London’s collection includes 60,000 dresses, gowns and accessories which are prized at $3 million.
