Galeries Lafayette partnering with Irish restaurant and takeaway ordering system Flipdish
What: Galeries Lafayette are eyeing to a same-day delivery service for their Gourmet offer.
Why it is important: So far, none of the large Paris department store is offering such a service, which also paved the way for a strong competition from smaller operators and newcomers. This move will probably trigger a general move to a same-day-delivery service as a stapple also from the other department stores in the city.
Irish tech unicorn Flipdish made an agreement with Galeries Lafayette to develop a bespoke product-ordering solution for Lafayette Gourmet. This new solution will allow the group to manage stock and deal with complex business issues such as order capacity and minimum preparation times. This will also allow Galeries Lafayette to offer a same day delivery service in Paris and its region.
