Supermarket giant Morrisons has launched a new next-day delivery scheme for food and essentials in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.
The grocer said it aims to speed up people’s access to essentials after it emerged that customers are waiting up to four weeks for their deliveries to arrive at some rival stores.
The new next-day service will deliver groceries within 24 hours – however the catch is that you won’t be able to choose what you order.
Instead of choosing your items, the grocer will offer you a choice from one of two food box initiatives – either meat or vegetarian.
Each box costs £35, and if you order before 3pm it will come the next day.
The contents of the boxes are random but the supermarket has promised that they are full of the essentials.
Inside the meat eaters box you’ll find: “A selection of food including fresh meat, plus essential household items.
Inside the vegetarian box you’ll find: “A selection of food suitable for vegetarians, plus essential household items.”
If you want to order one of the boxes, you’ll need to create an account on the Morrisons website by entering your name, email address and a password.
Or, if you already have a Morrisons online account, you can use your existing details using the ‘log-in’ button.
You’ll then need to tell Morrisons which type of box you would like, either Meat or Vegetarian, you can order up to two boxes per order.
You can select a delivery date that suits you – Morrisons says it can deliver the next day If you order before 3pm, but at the moment be aware that delivery times could vary.
Your food box will be delivered by DPD who will send you a confirmation including a tracking number, so you can keep up to date with your delivery.
