Christmas Ordering Online

Christmas orderignThis is such an exciting time of year for us here at the Natural Grocery Store and both the Store and the Home Delivery office have been just zinging along, helping our customers prepare for the Festive Season with a fabulous selection of goodies for Christmas dinner, presents for the tree or Hampers sent out to loved ones around the country.  

If you are still not quite organised for the big day then let us take the stress out of your Christmas by providing you with everything you may need all in one place, here at The Natural Grocery Store.

The last day we can deliver to you or yours before Christmas is Friday 21st December (unless you have pre-ordered Christmas Poultry), which means that our last orders will be taken on Wednesday 19th December up to 11am. We would like to dispatch all orders that do not contain fresh produce as early as possible this week so would appreciate early ordering if at all possible. 

Whilst on-line orders can continue be placed without inturruption, there will be no deliveries made from Sunday 23rd December to Wednesday 2nd January. The web office phones will not be manned for the week between Christmas and New Year and we re-open Wednesday 2nd, starting deliveries to you on Thursday 3rd January. If you are one of our regular customers please be aware of the shutdown period and order sufficient products to get you through the festive season.
