Support & Deliver: Lockdown Delivery Service

Rhiannon Burns - 13th November 2020

This week, Hereford City Life launched their brand-new lockdown delivery service, ‘Support & Deliver’.

We’ve had great feedback from businesses about the service so far, with many describing it as a crucial lifeline at this difficult time. We are passionate about supporting our local businesses and feel proud to be able to help bringing the Hereford shopping experience home during lockdown.

In the run up to November 5th, the team at Hereford City Life spoke to businesses in Hereford to learn about the additional challenges they’d facing during the next few weeks. For many a second lockdown means a battle to stay afloat and the prospect of moving online or potentially delivering goods has been a daunting task to consider.

So, with Christmas on the horizon, we wanted to provide a free service to our members that would take some of this pressure off and allow them to focus on re-connecting with their customers and getting those crucial sales that will help them survive beyond lockdown.

The service will run each Tuesday and Friday throughout lockdown and cover the whole of the Herefordshire, with the Hereford City Life team collecting goods direct from Hereford retailers in the morning for delivery that day.

Head to our ‘Covid-19: Open for Business’ webpage to learn more about businesses who are still operating during lockdown – keep an eye out for the Support & Deliver logo to see who’s taking part in the delivery service.
