Please shop responsibly. As Coronavirus uncertainty develops, we are seeing a lot of community demand for basic household items. Please do consider others - we all need to work together to ensure everyone gets what they need. So please don’t stockpile, and perhaps offer to help older neighbours, family or friends by sourcing items for them.

Feels like a good gesture here from the store group, as to say a massive thanks for all their hard work during the Coronavirus crisis, Waitrose and John Lewis are supplying NHS staff with boxes of confectionery for Easter 2020

Around 51 Waitrose shops will be gifting chocolates donated from John Lewis, which includes some delicious truffles and mini Easter eggs to hardworking frontline staff when they visit one of the participating shops from now until Easter weekend.

I am nhs and yes it is a nice gesture. However there are plenty kids isolated out there who would appreciate it more. We have had numerous offers since this started and feel slightly embarrassed as only doing what i am paid for. Seem to be getting much more recognition than other workers who are putting themselves in danger without receiving any praise.

Well done John Lewis. Unlike Vodafone who wanted people to run out to …Well done John Lewis. Unlike Vodafone who wanted people to run out to Thortons to spread the virus.


Except the workers have to visit Waitrose to get it so the people in closest contact with the virus are having to make the journey to the shop just like the Vodafone users...

They want people to run to Waitrose to spread the virus instead.


Most people can work out this can be picked up while shopping even if it's not your regular store.

Since Waitrose have great dedicated "NHS only" shopping areas with all the essentials for a quick grab and go it's not a bad place to make the essential shop this week to avoid an unnecessary journey.

EDIT:
This is the NHS only cold area in our Waitrose.

Plenty of stores gave away mother's Day stuff after mother's Day as it was forgotten about because and shelves were mostly full of it. Same will happen with Easter, I actually got one today

This is so kind
Nice
They were selling Easter eggs in WH Smith for £1 the other day. Plenty of them and maybe not enough shoppers.
From what I've heard there are too many Easter Eggs this year due to less demand, this is a great way to get rid of the excess from closed John Lewis branches the same way supermarkets are getting rid of their surplus flowers to NHS as well.

Heat added as it's a freebie still.

Yep and definitely won't be the same not getting reduced to clear Easter Eggs for $0.50 after Easter but going to NHS staff is very much acceptable. They deserve them for everything they are doing 💙
Definitely deserved!
Dear waitrose,please spread this shocking news to all the world.

Agreed but there is also a possibility there will be leftover stock still, especially if stores have to close online. Also stores like Debenhams going into administration, they sell eggs and won't be able to reopen to clear stock until all of this ends.

Yep, I meant before lockdown you could go to the stores just for reduced Easter eggs if you so wish to but now you can do that only if you're going for essentials.
this is brilliant

Quote Waitrose:

We recognise the tireless work of NHS staff, supporting us all through these unprecedented circumstances. Our Waitrose shops are setting aside a proportion of hard-to-find and essential products exclusively for NHS staff, on production of an NHS card. We’re also giving NHS staff priority checkout service to ensure they are able to get through as quickly and easily as possible.



We have had it for over a week now.
We have fridges with the sutter pulled down and marked NHS only, we even have part of the coffee shop set aside for non cold storage basic goods like toilet paper, rice, pasta etc, again marked NHS only.
Your store may be doing it a bit more subtly but, per their statment, they still should have dedicated NHS shopping, if not I would advice you to do your bit and ask why not.

Could not agree more with you on every level
How about donating them to food banks?
Well done

There is no coffee shop for them to put things in.
Definitely no NHS section, although they can skip the queue.
Shame they are not looking after their own staff - I read they were penalizing staff self isolating....

By the end of this there'll be working class, middle class, upper class, NHS worker class. And in 100 years there'll be a really odd French revolution sort of thing to depose the monsters at the top in their velvet robes and masks.
Shame they don’t appreciate their warehouse staff too
Was going to go tonight after work for some shopping, anyone tried this and know if its true, cant find anything on the waitrose website

If you went to any supermarket NHS hour last week you'd have got some, I reckon they'd do the same again. You deserve it anyway.
