CO-OP STORES – CORONAVIRUS SUPPORT.
You may or may not be aware that the CO-OP Stores are teaming up with local volunteering organizations to allow food shopping to be delivered to the most vulnerable people in their area.
We have received a lovely recommendation from Irena of Leonard Stanley Parish Council.
“I would like to acknowledge the fantastic help given by the Co-op in Stonehouse, where those residents can email/ring them and they will pick, pack and give me a call to collect their orders.”
Residents are able to phone their local store and the Co-op staff are able to take a click and collect style payment over the phone so that no money needs to change hands between residents and volunteers. The shopping will therefore already be paid for prior to collection.
The phone number for our local co-op is 01453 751585
Below is a link to the main Co-op website where you can find your local store contact details and get updates on the support they are providing at this time.
If you have a store near your area or within a few miles please do contact the store manager and find out how you can work together to support those most in need.
Please feel free to share this information or if you have any other tips and tricks that are working well for you please do let us know so that we can pass them on.
Thank you for all the hard work you are doing to support your local communities at this time. It is very much appreciated.
