Friars Pride has introduced a Call & Collect Service at all seven of its depots.
The fish and chip shop supplier closed its delivered service last week to safeguard its staff, customers and suppliers. However, in response to demand from some customers offering delivered takeaway facilities, it has taken the decision to introduce the new service.
A limited amount of time slots are now available at its depots in Peterborough, Nottingham, Norwich, Basildon, Bristol, Poole and Plymouth depots.
To use the Call & Collect Service, friers are advised to telephone Friars Pride on 01733 316400 between 9.00am-3.00pm, Monday-Friday. Orders will be taken for the following day and shops will be given a time slot to collect the order from their local depot. Payment will need to be made by card on placing an order, and the registration number of the vehicle collecting the order will be taken. To collect an order, shops should arrive at the depot at the allotted time and park their vehicle in the designated area where orders will be available to collect. Friars Pride staff will be following Government guidelines on social distancing and has put in place processes to minimise contact and keep at least 2m apart.
