EASTER is nearly here, so you might be thinking about how to put together the perfect Sunday roast.
If you’re wondering where you can get hold of a leg of lamb, make sure you know Iceland’s opening hours and delivery options.
Is Iceland offering home delivery for Easter?
As coronavirus continues to spread, shoppers are struggling to secure online delivery slots.
Iceland is offering free next-day delivery on orders above £35, to anyone who is over state pension age, self-isolating and other vulnerable people, such as the disabled.
The frozen-food specialist is offering “contact-free” delivery, but you need to ask for it in the ‘Delivery Notes’ box when you order.
At the moment there are no slots available, but Iceland says it is opening up new ones each day to cope with the demand.
What are the opening hours for Iceland over Easter?
If you aren’t over state pension age or vulnerable, Iceland says you should shop in store.
Opening hours vary by store and have been reduced in some locations because of coronavirus.
Usually you can check the opening times at your local using the Store Locator, but Iceland has warned in some cases this might not be up to date.
The last hour of trade in all Iceland stores is reserved for NHS customers and you will need your ID to shop.
If you shop in store, you should still be able to arrange home delivery, but Iceland says there could be delays due to high demand.
There are over 900 Icelands in the UK and you can find your nearest here.
The Sun has asked Iceland for more information about its Easter opening hours and will update this story when we know more.
