Stores UPDATE – 10th April 2020

Herewith just a quick update on stores availability for this Easter weekend.

I should add, we are indebted to our local suppliers who have serviced the stores day and night over the last 2 weeks often a great inconvenience and danger to themselves.

These are principally our ‘Local Heroes’ – You can read all about them here –

Without these, there is no doubt we would have been unable to achieve the availability levels that we have.

So many of these business’ have been family owned for many years, are long established and risen to the huge challenge with real enthusiasm and commitment.

Fresh Fruit & Vegetables:

Product range, availability and quality continues to be excellent

Bread & Bakery:

Availability good. Fresh Bread, Fresh Rolls Hot X Buns available in all stores

Fresh Meat:

Excellent ranges available. The vast majority has been locally sourced and will continue to be.  We have NOT compromised on our UK only sourcing policy.

Fresh Fish:

Good availability at Peasmarsh

Beers, Wines & Spirits:

Good availability – significant range improvements since last week


Toilet Rolls – Stocks are low but availability is coming through

Cleaning Products:

Availability improved significantly. Hand wash and anti-bacterial supplies now available

There are only a few restrictions on individual products and these are highlighted in stores.

On behalf of us all, may I thank you for your support and can I please remind you to keep a safe a social distance within our stores, this is for the benefit of my colleagues that are working tirelessly to serve you, others, as well as for yourself!

Keep safe!

Stephen and all the Jempson’s Team
