Title: Grocery deliveries
Post by: Gasman on March 23, 2020, 02:30:56 PM
Many of us are self-isolating for reasons of age and underlying health problems. We therefore do really depend on the delivery service from supermarkets or elsewhere for our essential groceries. Lyn and I are lucky in having booked a slot with Tesco (for two weeks hence!) and can hold out that long but it seems impossble to book further slots.

Irene has already posted the difficulty of getting through to Sainsbury who have allegedly given priority to people like us. Has anyone any advice on how to get messages through to the relevant supermarkets that we are unable to visit them for shopping?

I think they are all snowed under. The government said they were working with the supermarkets but that has all gone quite. The government had to change some rules so that the supermarkets could work together but I have not seen any sign of that. I have had to go to Sainsbury between 8 and 9 am to get groceries.
If you can exist on frozen ready meals then Oakhouse were taking order yesterday.
