With coronavirus cases rising, Morrisons is ensuring no customer is left behind by launching a new ‘doorstep delivery’ service that offers all customers who are self-isolating a next-day food delivery.

Customers simply have to ring the doorstep delivery service where they can choose the items for their emergency delivery. The service was previously only available for the elderly and clinically vulnerable people.

Now locals who are self-isolating can order their essentials by calling 0345 611 6111 and selecting option number five. You can choose a list of items across the supermarket, guided by the telesales operator.

The groceries will be delivered safely with social distancing measures maintained

Once the order is complete, the delivery will be made the following day by a store colleague from their local store - often the store’s Community Champion - who is tasked with helping members of the neighbourhood.

Customers can also pay for delivery on their doorstep via a mobile chip and pin device. The standard delivery charge is £4.50 and £2 for students. Additionally, there is no delivery charge for elderly and vulnerable people.

Any students who are looking to contact Morrisons with any further enquiries regarding their food delivery, can do so by emailing: [email protected]

Anna Lane, Morrisons Local Director, said: "This doorstep service will ensure that more people who can’t leave their homes to go shopping will be able to get a delivery of affordable food.

Groceries will be delivered by your store’s local Community Champion.
