Tesco outline their latest shopping measures ahead of lockdown

Parts of England including London and the South East are entering the strictest coronavirus tier to help stop the spread of coronavirus. While supermarkets have been open throughout the whole pandemic and continue to do so, many may turn their shopping habits online. 

With demand for online delivery soaring this year, supermarkets still do have some Christmas delivery slots available.

However with the news that parts of the UK will face stricter rules from tonight, which supermarkets still have grocery delivery available in time for Christmas day?

A statement on Sainsbury’s website states: “Our Christmas week slots are filling up fast.

“If you can’t see a delivery slot available for the date you’d like, why not try Click & Collect? We’ve expanded our contactless Click & Collect service to over 300 locations.”

For those wishing to choose Click & Collect, locations are available to view on their online store locator. 

For customers whose plans have also changed, Sainsbury’s also allows you to amend your shopping basket.

A statement on their website reads: “Add, remove, browse… You can update your basket and then re-checkout at any time using our website or app, right up until 11pm the day before your delivery or collection is due.”

Tesco shoppers hoping to get a grocery delivery before Christmas might be in luck.

A statement on their website says: “We now have very few Christmas slots available.”

Customers can check whether they can book one online.

The supermarket giant also allows shoppers to add and remove items from their basket.

Tesco said: “Forgot to add something to your order? That’s OK, you’ve got right up until 11.45pm on the day before your delivery or collection to make order amends and check out. 

“The only exceptions are with Festive Food to Order items, as the last date for those amends was 14 December. To make sure you get your order, please avoid changing your slot date.”

However there are other ways customers can shop with Tesco this year.

For deliveries, the price is £4.50 and for Click & Collect, it’s just £1.50.

Supermarkets will still be open in Tier 4, and Tesco recently announced that certain stores will be open 24 hours in the run-up to Christmas.

Unfortunately Asda has faced high demand for their Christmas delivery slots this year.

A statement on their website reads: “Unfortunately the majority of our Christmas slots are full between the 21st and 23rd December.

“Please check other dates or find your local store.”

Some Asda stores are also open 24 hours to help customers shop when the store is quieter. 

The supermarket giant also has a Click & Collect service where shoppers can pick up their groceries from their local store the same day or next day.
