SHOPPERS in Oswestry will now have access to the click and collect service at one of the town’s supermarkets.

Morrisons has expanded its click and collect service to 447 stores across the UK, including its supermarkets in Oswestry, Welshpool and Shrewsbury.

At the start of March 2020, there were just 14 Morrisons stores offering click and collect, growing to 280 in the second lockdown in November.

Now, Morrisons has extended the service even further to help customers during the latest January lockdown.

Morrisons’ Click & Collect service allows customers to complete a order online and then collect from a store, without an additional delivery charge and contact-free, at a time that suits them best.

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 and collect is an excellent alternative and is proving really popular with customers.

“Since the first lockdown we have expanded our click and 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.”

Morrisons is also offering 10 per cent discounts on shopping to key workers, which include NHS staff, teachers and Blue Light Card holders.

There is also an NHS shopping hour which takes place between 6am and 7am, from Monday to Saturday to make it easier for the nation’s key workers to do their shopping.
