Sainsbury's might not deliver your Christmas shopping thanks to glitch
Thought you were smart getting Sainsbury's to deliver your Christmas shopping didn't you? You thought you'd miss all those awful queues and scrambles for turkeys by getting it brought to your door.
Well, that smuggery may end up biting you on the posterior as Sainsbury’s have warmed that all their orders from their website may not be delivered in time for the 25th December.
A spokesman for the supermarket apologised “unreservedly” and said: “We have been contacted by a small number of customers who found their online delivery slot cancelled when they reviewed their order. In the majority of cases we have been able to re-book their deliveries.
“However, in a small number of cases we were unable to offer a suitable alternative and we have offered these customers a gesture of goodwill. We apologise unreservedly to customers who have been inconvenienced in any way.”
If you're sneering at people who shop at Sainsbury’s for being common, you may be thrilled to learn that another retailer facing IT bother this Christmas is Fortnum & Mason who said yesterday that they are currently experiencing “severe” IT problems.
Ho! Ho! Ho!
