Shopping and Delivery Service

Shopping and Delivery Service

What does it do?

This service is provided in partnership with the Co-operative store in Lees and Oldham’s People, Communities and Society.

All of the shopping comes from the Co-operative at Lees, where the Age Concern Shopping Service is based. We deliver in all areas across the borough of Oldham on specific days of the week, Tuesday to Friday.

Following your application you will receive a letter informing you of the day and time of your delivery (morning or afternoon).

As agreed with you in advance, we will contact you the day before your delivery is due to take your shopping list.

The next day your delivery will arrive with our driver and a staff member who will put your shopping away on request.

We will try our best to supply the goods that you have ordered if they are in store. If you request, we will bring an alternative. We will refund any unwanted items if a mistake has been made on our part.

Who it is for?

This service provides shopping and delivery to the homes of people who are housebound or disabled, who may find it difficult to do their own shopping.

We also provide this service on a short-term basis for people who have recently been in hospital or are recovering from an illness.

Where it is available?

Local service (Oldham).

What it costs:

When your order arrives your shopping list will have the till receipt attached.

The operative will inform you of any items that we have been unable to deliver.

The charge for your shopping will be £6.00 for up to 2 trays and a further charge of £2.50 per tray will be added thereafter.

We would prefer you to pay by cheque, if possible, supported by a guarantee card, but we are happy to accept cash.
