Just Eat Takeaway.com said on Wednesday that orders in Canada — where it operates as Skip The Dishes — rose by 98% to 23.5 million in the third quarter compared with the same period last year.

Canadians have been used to picking up food from restaurants rather than having it delivered to their homes. But that appears to be changing, encouraged by restrictions imposed during the pandemic and lockdowns that kept people at home.

“We are now transforming that pick-up culture into a delivery culture, that’s why it’s growing so quickly,” Just Eat Takeaway.com’s investor relations manager Joris Wilton told CNN Business, adding that the second quarter had seen similar levels of growth.

A big increase in the selection of meals offered by restaurants also helped, making consumers more likely to order food more often, he said.

Just Eat Takeaway.com, which was formed through a high-stakes merger last year, is

  • Apple has around 300 retail stores in the United States and Canada
  • Apple’s operations team will decide where the order will be shipped from
  • The company is expected to announce new products Tuesday

Apple expects to deliver its products a day after receiving orders by shipping them directly from its network of about 300 retail stores across the United States and Canada, finding new ways to utilize its stores amid restrictions imposed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Apple informed its staff that customers who live within 100 miles of an Apple store will benefit from this strategy, Bloomberg reported.

The tech giant usually ships iPhones, iPads, Macs and other products from its warehouses or directly from China. Apple will use the United Parcel Service in Canada and FedEx in the United States to ship products faster.

Woolworths has deployed its first micro-automation technology in the e-commerce facility located at the back of its existing Melbourne-based Carrum Downs supermarket, in a bid to speed up the delivery of online grocery orders.

The supermarket giant claims to be the first in Australia to deploy the Takeoff technology, which has been designed to sort and move up to 10,000 grocery products from automated storage units to team members that are handpicking customer orders. Fresh fruit, vegetables, and meat will continue to be handpicked from the shop floor, Woolworth said.

According to Woolworths Group CEO Brad Banducci, automating the picking of products will help dispatch five times the online order volume of a standard Woolworths store.

“As customer expectations continue to rise, we’re investing in new technology to keep pace with the growth and focusing on building an ever more convenient online offer,” he said.

“The micro-fulfilment

Public records show the North Carolina Department of Commerce made dozens of work orders to fix the problems.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A WCNC Charlotte Defenders investigation is revealing a long list of technical problems with North Carolina’s unemployment system — everything from computer glitches to incorrect payments. 

Public records show the North Carolina Department of Commerce made dozens of work orders to fix the problems. It comes as people say they’ve struggled to access their own accounts.

Sophie Shamsiddeen and Verna Huntley-Alexander said they faced delays accessing their accounts because of computer issues with the unemployment system.

“The website went down,” Huntley-Alexander said. “I cannot access my account.”

“There was a system glitch,” Shamsiddeen said.

The Defenders team also waited a long time for the North Carolina Department of Commerce to release public records that shed light on the problem.
