It will open for online orders for delivery and collection on Wednesday, May 6 and will be used to inform the gradual reopening of the remaining locations over the coming weeks.

Chief operating officer David Ellison said: ‘Our Bedhampton store has an active community of customers who are well versed with ordering online for collection or delivery, so we will be encouraging the use of our website and delivery drivers where possible.
