Morrisons was one of the first supermarkets back in the first national lockdown to launch food delivery boxes to ensure customers could get hold of food they needed. With Christmas just around the corner, the supermarket giant is launching a new festive box that shoppers can get delivered straight to their front door.

The new festive Christmas Dinner for Two Box is to help ensure that self-isolating customers or those who cannot get to a supermarket get everything they need for a Christmas dinner.

Costing just £18.36, the box contains a British Turkey Breast joint, peeled potatoes, and all the Christmas trimmings including pigs in blankets, vegetables, stuffing, gravy and cranberry sauce.

The box even includes a starter and dessert as well as two freshly-baked mince pies, two Christmas crackers and a selection of wine.

For those who need guidance on how to make the best festive dinner, Morrisons has included a recipe card with step-by-step instructions and timings to make it as easy as possible.

Customers can order the box from today via Morrisons’ dedicated Doorstep Deliveries phone line.

The service will be available until December 13 and orders will be delivered on a day between December 21 and December 23.

Shoppers are able to place orders over the phone by calling 0345 611 6111 and selecting option five.

Standard delivery charges apply of £4.50, with student delivery costing £2 and an optional delivery contribution of £1.50 for elderly and vulnerable customers.

For customers who can travel to stores, the supermarket giant has many rules in place to help ensure everyone stays as safe as possible.

Shoppers should maintain social distancing when in-store and when queuing outside of the retailer.

If there is a queue outside, those shopping with a basket can skip the queue to help them complete their shop quicker.

Morrisons is currently experiencing high demand for delivery slots and recommends customers booking as far in advance as possible.

In other supermarket news, Sainsbury’s recently announced it would be rolling out a virtual queuing system to help customers.

This will be helpful for customers who find themselves in a long queue as the weather gets colder.

Customers without a smartphone can ask a member of staff to be added to the virtual queue, and will be alerted when they can enter the store.

Supermarket giant Asda also has implemented a vritual queue to help customers shop easier for festive goods.
