The Country Range Group member launched the service from is Darlaston depot in the West Midlands on 15 April in an attempt to make up for some of the sales lost by restrictions placed on the nation’s catering outlets.
The available range includes more than 200 product lines that are perfect for families, with cupboard essentials, chilled and frozen food, as well as fresh meat and produce boxes.
As part of this, a website has been launched for product browsing and placing orders, with next-day delivery available six days a week.

“Our next-day click & collect service provides a quick and easy alternative to supermarket queues and waiting weeks for online deliveries.
