Supermarket Morrisons has further expanded its click and collect slots as it seeks to continue to reach as many customers as possible during the pandemic.
The grocer has now made the service available from 447 stores across the country, offering up to 37,000 slots per day.
This marks a huge scaling up since March 2020, when just 14 stores offered the service, and November, when it was offered from 280.
The click and collect offering sits alongside other new services introduced by Morrisons during the pandemic, including same-day delivery through Amazon and Deliveroo and a “food box” delivered by DPD offering a range of fridge and pantry staples.
Miles Foster, Morrisons online operations director, said: “We are doing everything we can to increase the amount of home delivery slots available but we recognise that the slots get snapped up quickly in lockdown. Click & Collect is an excellent alternative and is proving really popular with customers.
“Since the first lockdown we have expanded our Click & Collect service significantly and it is now available from 447 of our stores across the country. We have slots available now nationwide so our customers can get the groceries they need in a contact-free and convenient way.”
