Our Co-op has been absolutely fantastic, teaming up with Eastington Volunteers to deliver shopping to those who are self-isolating or otherwise unable to get out.
The regular deliveries are being wound down now, but you can still ask for a delivery if you cannot get to the shop. These will still be undertaken by Co-op colleagues or Eastington Volunteers – just ask
Additionally, the Co-op is now offering a ‘call and collect’ service to all customers. Just phone in with your order, pay over the phone, and collect when it is ready. Simples!
