*REMINDER* Now that we’re nearing 500 customers, we’re starting to outgrow our warehouse space, and have come to the conclusion that splitting our deliveries over two days is our best option going forward. To keep this as simple as possible, we’re using the Clyde as a boundary, so we’ll be doing deliveries to the South on a Wednesday, and deliveries to the North on a Friday. If your delivery day has changed, you should have received an email from us earlier this week, and here’s a reminder of changes to deadlines:
- If you want to make a change or pause your delivery, you must let us know no later than Sunday 11pm.
- Open Food Network orders must be placed no later than Monday 11pm – if you place an order after this, it will be delivered to you the following week.
Friday delivery – no changes
- If you want to make a change or pause your delivery, you must let us know no later than Tuesday 11pm.
- The Open Food Network closes Wednesday 11pm.
Deliveries to Edinburgh and the Stirling area will continue to be delivered on a Thursday, and the Friday deadlines apply.
It’s cupboard staples week, so we’re also delivering selections of pasta, pulses and grains. There are three sizes to choose from; small £10, standard £15, large £20. If you’d like to add one to your order, drop us an email.
