Our FREE local delivery service continues to grow in popularity. So much so that we are delivering to up to 20 customers a night Monday to Friday.
In order to be able to keep this service free we have to be able to do the deliveries ourselves. With our free delivery area covering Gloucester, Cheltenham and Painswick we have reached the limits to what we can achieve in one night. A couple of times now we have not finished the round until 10pm – too late for most customers.
So to keep the times sensible for our customers and to ensure we can complete the rounds we are introducing a delivery schedule for each area covered. By concentrating the deliveries in smaller areas and not having to drive from Hardwicke to the other side of Cheltenham in one round, we can ensure we get to all our customers and keep the service FREE by not having to employ an outside driver.
The new schedule comes into effect on Monday 14th of September and is as follows.
Monday – GL1, GL3, GL4 and Cheltenham postcodes
Tuesday – GL1, GL2, GL4 and Painswick (and Stroud – £5 charge)
Wednesday – GL1, GL3, GL4 and Cheltenham postcodes
Thursday – GL1, GL2, GL4 and Painswick (and Stroud – £5 charge)
Friday – GL1, GL2, GL3, GL4.
Saturday – No service
Sunday – No service
Bank holidays – No service
This schedule ensures our customers do not have to wait more than two working days for a delivery and is weighted to the areas where most deliveries are. We hope this does not inconvenience any of our customers but it really is a case of the service being a victim of its own success.
