In light of unprecedented times, artisan butchers, James Whelan Butchers is encouraging customers to use the group’s online shop ( www.jameswhelanbutchers.com) which delivers door to door, Tuesday to Saturday with free next day delivery for all orders over €100.
Meanwhile, supermarkets SuperValu and Tesco Ireland have both seen demand for their online shopping services rocket during the Covid-19 outbreak.
Tesco said it was “endeavouring to prioritise” home shopping customers aged 65-plus, while Supervalu said its online service “did not have visibility” of shoppers’ ages, other than that they needed to be 18 or older to use the service. However, the retailer pointed out that it had implemented “specific measures in-store to cater for elderly customers”.
Buymie, which provides third-party deliveries for Lidl and Tesco in the greater Dublin area, reported a 300% rise in demand for its services, according to The Irish Times.
