Here at Albion Home we have taken the decision to suspend home deliveries with effect from Thursday 27th May 2021.
We set Albion Home up in March 2020 in the eye of the lockdown storm and we feel that we did a good job in meeting an obvious need at the time. Albion has traditionally been a wholesale supplier and our business is set up to serve trade customers. Our team here adapted quickly and professionally and we remain grateful for the trust and confidence placed in us by thousands of families at what was a difficult time for everyone.
The mainstream supermarkets, for whom home deliveries is their bread and butter, have increased capacity considerably and demand for our service has fallen. We will never to be able to challenge weekly shopping baskets in normal times; we don't have the range, the infrastructure or the buying power to compete and as our trade customers return we do need to focus on our core business.
We thank every person who placed an order with Albion Home over the past 14 months; it's been hugely challenging, a real learning curve for the Albion team and a genuine privilege to have received the thousands of positive comments we have.
We wish the communities we have served the best of health as life gets back to normal.
