Morrisons have announced an express delivery service for vulnerable people isolating during the lockdown. The new scheme will allow those most in need to get urgent household goods within 24 hours. The new scheme – which is aimed at the elderly and those with underlying health conditions – will allow people to receive deliveries from a list of 47 essential items.
Customers in need will be able to place an order over the phone for popular items like milk, butter, eggs, potatoes, pasta, bananas, cornflakes and flour. Morrisons have set up a dedicated phone line for the service and customers will be able to pay on delivery via a mobile chip and device. This new telephone service will ensure that more people who can’t leave their home to go shopping will be able to get a delivery.
To help support this new service, Morrisons has invested in a van for every one of its 494 stores so that colleagues can drop the shopping off on a customer’s doorstep.
Customers who wish to place an order should phone 0345 611 6111 and select option five.
