Another opportunity for an online shop - worth looking at?

Marks & Spencer has launched its first home delivery service, four months ahead of its partnership with Ocado.
Customers can now order from a range of about 130 M&S food and household items through Deliveroo.
M&S has kept its Simply Food stores and food halls open during the coronavirus pandemic, but the delivery service will make its products available to those confined to their homes.
It says deliveries will take 30 minutes and there is a £4.99 charge.
The service is available from 142 M&S outlets across the country.
The launch comes after rival Sainsbury's introduced a one-hour delivery service called Chop Chop, which allows customers to order a top-up shop of up to 20 items. It too charges a £4.99 delivery fee.

Will definitely have a look as we miss M&S for our treats/top up shops. Thanks MawB!

I was going to give this a go Maw but today when passing M&S there was no queue so in I went!

I'll leave it until next week now as not in need of anything.

I want to pre-book Ocado for next week but that's proving impossible - could have a delivery for tomorrow but that's too soon!

Bumping this up as it may have been missed

I didn’t know this maw. Interesting. I love M&S food but can’t buy their set delivery boxes as they contain stuff DH can’t eat. I will take a closer look at this.

Just looked. Shame, no where near us but very useful for a lot of people I would think.
