    Do Waitrose have a good home delivery service?

    Are they expensive, but worth it for healthy foods and healthy products or are there better alternatives for home delivery service?

    By home delivery, online service.

    Thanks.

    They are quite expensive comapred to the other big supermarkets and only tend to set up i nwell off areas - as soemone posted their branch fidner, you can see they probably noly have about 100 stores aroudn the UK, way less than the other big name supermarkets.

    yeah, but like our 'catchphrast/slogan says...'quality food, honestly priced'. To be honest i think you get what you pay for as the food always is of a good quality

    no need to give me the speil!

    anyhow, john lewis also use a simialr slogan, didnt stop them selling a TV for £500 more than they let tosn of peopel pricematch it for - hardly never knowingly undersold if they were selling the TV when they knew it was much cheaper elsewhere

    waitrose is good quality, but you can get the same quality, if not better, for competitive prices from farm shops and small independants and specialist shops - waitrose just puts it all in one place. it is convenience and better quality than other supermarkets. i wouldn't say the pricing is that good.

    I've only ever been into Waitrose...once. A bit too expensive/fancy for me. Isn't it like a slightly less posh M&S?
