Since the majority of high street stores are closed and we are only able to leave the house for essentials, online shopping has never been more important. We can't just pop to John Lewis to pick up some new throw cushions or go and spend the day at Ikea to stock up on affordable furniture (and obviously the bags of frozen meatballs) anymore. So we have looked into which of our favourite stores are still delivering and what the delivery times are like.
Below you will find a list of stores, from homeware brands to pharmacies that are still making home deliveries and information on how long those deliveries are likely to take. As expected, with demand extra high right now, the shops are working round the clock to ensure people can get what they need, but the good news is most of them are still delivering.
If you are looking for information on online grocery orders check out our guide to the best grocery delivery services. then seen which DIY stores are still open for online orders for additional information – but we have listed these stores here too so read on.
Standalone Argos stores are now closed, however Argos stores in Sainsbury’s supermarkets are still open. Online orders are continuing as normal and you can Click and Collect from Sainsbury's stores and pick up your order when you do your weekly shop.
Asos are still delivering as normal and just taking extra precautions to make it as safe as possible to bring you all your cute clothes to wear on your big night out to your living room. You have to order next day deliveries by 10am and there are no next day deliveries on Saturday or Sunday.
Boots are still taking online orders and making home deliveries as normal. They are also delivering NHS repeat prescriptions to your home for free. However, as you can imagine the site is very busy, you might find when you open the site you are added to a queue, so just leave the tab open and keep an eye on it. It will tell you what number you are in the queue too. Waiting times seem to be about 20 minutes when we go on at the start of the day.
Home deliveries options are running as normal at Debenhams despite stores being closed. They have also extended returns to up to 14 days after their stores reopen, that date is unknown at the moment.
Yay Dunelm are back delivering! For the last week they haven't been offering online orders, but they are now back open and offering safe, contact free delivery. Larger items will unable to be delivered as they no longer have two delivery people out at once, but for all your small cute homeware offers, Dunelm is you go to.
H&M stores are closed but you can order from their site as normal. There is also free delivery on all orders (cheers H&M) and you get 100 days to return your items so you don't need to worry about getting to a post office to return your order.
You can still order from Habitat online, and the expected delivery dates will be shown on each product page when you come to purchase. Habitat are aiming to keep all their delivery times but bear in mind orders might take a little longer to arrive than normal.
Holland & Barrett
You can still stock up on your vitamins, health foods and beauty essentials at Holland & Barrett. They are still offering delivery but just bear in mind that they are especially busy at the moment so orders will take between 11-15 days.
All Ikea stores are closed but they are still making deliveries for online orders. Some larger items will be unavailable for deliveries as Ikea have temporarily stopped two person deliveries. All deliveries will all be contact-free.
Despite all John Lewis stores being closed, you can order as normal online and delivery times are working as normal, including next day delivery. You can also do Click and Collect and pick up your order from your nearest Waitrose or Co-op when you do your weekly shop.
Marks and Spencer
While M&S Simply Food stores and the food halls in their larger stores remain open, stores that sell homeware and clothes have been closed. However, you can still order online as normal, except you now have to make next day deliveries before 8pm and time slots for deliveries are no longer available. M&S have extended their returns policy to 90 days.
You can still order as normal on Made.com and they will still deliver as normal. They are doing no contact deliveries and have increased hygiene regimes to ensure that hand washing and cleaning are much more frequent, and have deployed split shifts to minimise the number of people working together in their warehouses and on deliveries.
The Superdrug website is still up and running but they are facing a very high number of orders so they are letting customers know that their parcel may arrive after the estimated delivery date. You can order online to store and pick up your order from there, but we only recommend doing this if your purchase is of high importance.
Wayfair deliveries are still operating on schedule and they are only doing contact free deliveries.
