We are glad to say that our offer is full of seasonal delights, and we have a bountiful and abundant range as normal. There are no limitations on purchases. Big thanks to customers for the support and appreciation we’ve been shown as we’ve navigated this challenging time. Take care.
We Are Open Mondays So You Can Shop With Us 7 Days a Week
We are now open on Mondays, to help spread out shopping trips and keep some space and peace on the shop floor. Mondays are still pretty quiet so it’s a great day to shop if you are in the area. We do want to have our Mondays back one day for all the behind the scenes work we usually use it for… it’s not a forever change! If you were using Timed Entry Booking on Mondays please note we have paused this service as demand has significantly reduced over time.
Monday Cargo Bike Deliveries
On Mondays, we have partnered up with Chorlton Bike Deliveries to offer FREE delivery to local shoppers (within 3 miles). While we don’t currently have capacity to fulfill orders remotely, we hope this service will encourage our customers to shop for others on their street, and to help our many regulars who do not have access to a car for heavier shops.
Once you know what time you are shopping with us, please call Glynis on 07561 737 986 to pre-arrange your car-free delivery. Glynis and her team of volunteers will be delivering within a 3 mile radius of the shop using their fleet of cargo bikes. HUGE thanks to Glynis and her team for making this service possible. The future is pedal-powered!
Opening Hours & Entry
The first 30 mins of each day (apart from Sunday) are reserved for high-risk shoppers. NHS staff and care workers can shop during our regular hours, just come to the front of the queue to avoid a wait.
What we’re asking of you
Please wear a face covering when you’re in the shop. Equally, we ask that compassion be shown to customers who are not able to wear one. The government’s list of exemptions can be found here.
Once you’re in the shop, please move through as quickly as you can and if at all possible, pay by card. We ask that you try and respect social distancing, both inside & outside the shop (2 metres = 2 shopping trollies). Please follow NHS advice on self-isolating, and do not come to the shop if you are unwell.
Looking after each other
If you know of elderly or vulnerable people in our community, please think about whether you can offer to help them out with shopping or other essential needs. If you have time to shop for a neighbour but don’t have transport – see above for Monday bike deliveries.
Lots of local support groups have sprung up to meet new needs. There’s a good list of Chorlton groups providing support on a street by street basis here. Plus The Co-op has collated lots of new and existing community organisations in the area on this page.
The city council has also set up a hub to support Manchester’s most vulnerable people, and help them cope with the impacts of the pandemic.
They can help you if you are:
- over the age of 70, are self isolating and have no support network,
- if you have received a letter from the NHS advising you are high risk, or
- you are medically vulnerable according to the government criteria.
Help is also available for other reasons, for example if you are a carer, care leaver or young carer. Call the council’s Community Response team on 0800 234 6123.
