Also tried Tesco - no deliver slots - it went up to 17 April.  Click and collect was 38 miles away  :-\

Yikes. Thank goodness for neighbours, No shortage of those. "Angels"

Frightening isn't it. 

My neighbours are all older than me though one offered to shop on the market for me when they went this week but they are in a very vulnerable family and really should not be out. 

I am hoping that my shop is delivered next week as promised and that I can continue to access a slot each week then I can keep my neighbour and myself supplied with the necessities.

Hopefully you will get all you ask for Rosie, that seems to be an other problem at the moment.

Fingers crossed for you.

Well my first ever on line shop was ooooh! not very good.
No toilet soap ,just the “Simple” sort £1-75 for three bars ,got one bar iof super sensitive stuff3-00 for one bar.
Only seventeen items from quite a few more .
No long life milk etc.
Asked for an iceberg lettuce, wow, a huge white football has arrived.
Lots of very basic things missing ,will try again but when the stuff will be delivered—————.
Hope everyone is well and in good cheer.

Thanks Sandra,

I am more concerned for my neighbour at the moment but I am sure we will cope between us  ;D.
 
The delivery I have had was not bad though I will be asking for alternatives on everything in future.
I have been using S'sburys online weekly for a few years now and I normally don't ask for alternatives on anything but we can't afford to be choosy at the moment can we.  ::)

And don't even try looking at Ocado!

If I remember correctly, the queue ahead was 155,559, - (or something like that)

Rather frustratingly, our neighbors, who always have their groceries delivered, - are getting regular deliveries. But as new customers, we can't even get on there:-(
