  • Morrisons – call 0345 611 6111 and select option 5
  • Sainsbury’s – call 0800 328 1700 from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday. You’ll need to register over the phone before your first order.

Safety measures for shoppers

Retailers are legally required to put measures in place to protect staff and shoppers from coronavirus. It’s also a legal requirement for shoppers to wear a face covering whilst shopping, unless they have a valid legal exemption. Staff must also wear a face covering while in a public facing area, unless they have an exemption. These measures should help to lower the risk of the virus spreading.
