Walter Rose & Son launch contactless website to deliver essentials as UK remains in lockdown

Covid-19 News | Food & Drink | South West

The Cook family at Walter Rose and Son have announced that they have launched a brand-new, purpose-built website to enable customers to order essentials online with contactless payment and delivery to their door.

The current Covid-19 situation means that the Devizes-based butchers needed to focus on contactless delivery to residential addresses across the south of the UK and into London.

Walter Rose is in a period of change, but this new focus is proving a real success and a very welcome service to customers who cannot leave the house, or are in self-isolation.

The new website has been developed exclusively to manage the surge of orders during the Covid-19 pandemic to cope with unprecedented demand for efficient contactless delivery now the country is in lockdown.

Director, Steve Cook said: “Our valued customers must know that our supply chains are fully-stocked, and we can feed people across Wiltshire and beyond with top quality meat, veg and essential items and quickly deliver them to their door with our fleet of refrigerated vans. We have plentiful stock in the fields all around us, so no problems with sourcing it, unlike supermarkets, whose produce is largely-sourced from overseas countries like Poland & Romania.

“Our dedicated staff are carefully fulfilling and despatching orders as they come in.  We cover all areas across the south of the UK, including London and will deliver free of charge across Wiltshire and surrounds.  We are more than happy to assist the public who have now been told to stay at home by the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson.”

The butchers shop in Devizes is taking their locally sourced, top quality meat, fish, vegetable boxes, eggs, milk and delicatessen items in Swindon, as well as to addresses up and down the country as concerns grow about Covid-19 infection.

Steve continued: “The supermarkets are making people wait, often weeks, for the next available delivery slot – This can add to already heightened levels of anxiety. Our customers can rest assured that they will receive beautiful local produce, within a day of placing the order. It is this impeccable, well-organised service and optimum product quality that has built our reputation over the last forty-four years. We are proud to be able to help at this difficult time.”
