Marks and Spencer: Coronavirus news – are shops open is there delivery?


Marks and Spencer’s 31 clothing and home only outlets will be closed. However, food halls and Simply Food stores will still be open, to serve the public.

However, it has teamed up with food the delivery service to do so in this time of need.

A range of around 60 products can be delivered to homes in 30 minutes, the store claims.

This includes M&S 100 percent Orange Juice Smooth 1L, M&S 12″ Stone Baked Cheese & Tomato Pizza, M&S 4 Pint Semi Skimmed Milk, M&S Super Seed Loaf 800g, and the M&S Chilli & Rice Meal.

Will Shu, founder and CEO of Deliveroo, said: “At Deliveroo, we want to do everything possible to help people get the food they want and need during this worrying period.

“We hope we can play a role in supporting people who have to isolate to get the food they need whether that’s household items or restaurant food.”

Last night in his statement Prime Minister Boris Johnson urged Britons to use online delivery services. However, suppliers are struggling to cope.

One Twitter user said: “Well if anyone can get a food delivery slot you are a better person than me.

“I’ve been trying with Tesco’s for the past two weeks on and off and Sainsbury’s just crashes.”

“I can’t get any slots from tesco, Sainsbury’s or Waitrose and I’ve used them all before. Waitrose cancelled my last delivery. I’m especially annoyed with ocado because all the others at least have a working site. Ocado have no High Street presence. They are solely an online,” one wrote.
