As lockdown eases, many businesses are now reopening and advice by HM Government is changing. Food shops and pharmacies are maintaining social distancing alongside many newly reopened “non-essential” shops. We have maintained the listing for food shops and pharmacies who had adapted and continued to offer essential services throughout the pandemic.

Delivery slots
Tesco know that it’s difficult right now to get a delivery slot for online shopping. They’re at full capacity for the next few weeks, so if you are able to shop in-store safely instead of booking a delivery, it would be a great help. This will allow them to start freeing up more slots for the more vulnerable. As they increase their capacity, they’ll also set aside more of these slots for the most vulnerable customers.

Morrisons have introduced an NHS hour – 7am-8am Monday-Saturday. All colleagues with an NHS badge will be able to get into the store to stock up on the products they need. On Sundays we will open at 9am for NHS workers to shop. We will open at 9.30am for all other customers to shop normally. The Sunday browsing hour is suspended, so you can shop normally from 9.30am each Sunday.
