Waitrose Food Box

1 reply 274 views
Waitrose has launched its own £25 food box (via the John Lewis website):

Apparently it's designed to feed one person for a week.  You can order two at once, which gets you free delivery.  They are obviously quite late to the party on this, but it looks much more nutritious than some of the other supermarkets' offerings.

I know many people on MSE consider Waitrose overpriced, but I've checked and the individual items come to £24.86, so at least you're not being overcharged for the box itself.

I hope this might help people still struggling to get delivery slots, or those with vulnerable relatives living some distance away.

    For those who shop at Waitrose and able to leave the house or know someone who can get to a store I have found it easy getting click and collect slots. Minimum £40 order. They release slots for a few days ahead at midnight.  I picked up a click and collect order this morning, 45 items ordered and everything I ordered in stock. Got there for 9 am, waited outside the designated area and was loading up my car 5 minutes later.
