Concierge shopping comes to the Deli.
Some of our customers - understandably - don't like shopping in the Deli when other people are around.
The past few days, that's given them a chance to stroll round sunny Charlbury a bit more till we empty. A few have been delighted to discover the lovely flowers in St Mary's churchyard.
But this IS England and you know what they say about April showers. Even if the next few weeks' forecast is a lot more optimistic than we are are.
So from today, we'll have an experimental appointments service, when you can have the shop (and one of our team) to yourself right after we close. As well as our normal operation of course. Harvey Nicks would probably call it Concierge Shopping: anyone with a brand name more suitable to Charlbury will win a litre bottle of our North Cotswold Organic full-cream milk. And, if we ever get supplies, a packet of rice to make pudding with it.
Call us after 8.30 on 01608 811157 (or email before about midday to firstname.lastname@example.org) and we'll offer you the next available time after 2 pm that day, or any other working day.
We've not tried this before, so there'll probably be operational details that won't go quite right. Right now, we're having to make up a lot as we go, so please bear with us.
