Marks and Spencer launches online “food boxes” for vulnerable customers amid Covid-19 outbreak
Marks & Spencer has launched new online “food boxes” to help vulnerable customers find kitchen essentials during the Coronavirus epidemic.
The highstreet retailer will give priority to customers over the age of 70, identified via its loyalty scheme Sparks, who may be finding it more challenging to buy essentials during the Coronavirus outbreak.
The boxes are filled with over 20 kitchen and household essentials, from pasta, rice, curries and cooking sauces to sweets, and is priced at £30.
Marks & Spencer is also offering contact-free delivery options to ensure maximum safety measures for its employees and customers.
The launch comes after the British government announced a full lockdown and advised people to stay home unless for essential shopping or exercise.
Recently, Marks & Spencer cancelled a £100m in clothing orders and is considering closing stores temporarily during the COVID-19 Coronavirus outbreak.
