@tonicurtis1967 worth checking with council... Many councils run a minibus service for disabled, elderly and those living in areas without adequate bus services (like in rural areas). Contact your local council and ask them. My council has such a service, collect me from door and take me where I want within 5 miles

I just don't get it. They're putting their minimum spend limit up because they're losing customers? That's one stupid policy decision that they'll probably regret.

I can't go online grocery shopping. Some stores substitute out of stock items for things I wouldn't dream of choosing. I also like to see that my vegetables and fruit aren't mouldy and everything else is in date!

We do online shop we use Sainsbury's I have to say they are spot on. Never had a issue with them.

Heard too many bad experiences with Asda, hope you get something sorted.

I’m sorry , I still feel that shopping the old way , you know buying just what I need when I need it , is easier than bulk buying , EVERYTHING.

@tonicurtis1967  you don't always need to be elderly or disabled. If you live in an area without bus routes, rural councils often supply minibus service. Each council has its own criteria though so you should call them and ask. Good luck.

It's interesting to read other people's experiences @trudy81.   When we started grocery shopping on line, two years ago, we tried several - Morrisons, Asda, Sainsbury's and Tesco, and we found Tesco by far the best, and Sainsbury's the worst.   Sainsburys would delivery fresh food on it's date, but not tell you, and when I complained, they gave me a voucher, which could only be used for the next on line shop.   Not a chance !   Tesco refund anything straight back to your account, and they will specify any dates that are a bit short.   Also their drivers are really friendly and helpful, in this area anyway.  There is a minimum charge of £40, but we usually meet that OK.  I pay £6.99 per month for any time/cost delivery which I think is good value.


Perhaps @tonicurtis1967, fornightly deliveries might be the answer, as others have suggested ?  Hope you get something sorted.
