Food businesses are adapting quickly to drastically different circumstances and needs. Many now sell a wider range of goods and are doing deliveries –  for the first time or on a much greater scale – and others have created click-and-collect or collection services so customers don’t have to spend long in the shop. This is a changing situation; if possible, check online for the latest updates.
