Walter Rose & Son Launch NEW Contactless Website to Help Families Across Wiltshire in Self-isolation

The Cook family at Walter Rose and Son are delighted to announce that they have launched a brand-new, purpose-built website to enable customers to order essentials online with contactless payment and delivery to their door.

The new website has been developed exclusively to manage the surge of orders during the Covid-19 pandemic to cope with unprecedented demand for efficient contactless delivery now the country is in lockdown.

Walter Rose prides itself on sourcing the finest local produce from top quality suppliers and it is due to these long-standing relationships that their supply chain is completely unaffected at this difficult time.

Director, Steve Cook said: “Our valued customers must know that our supply chains are fully-stocked, and we can feed people across Wiltshire and beyond with top quality meat, veg and essential items and quickly deliver them to their door with our fleet of refrigerated vans. We have plentiful stock in the fields all around us, so no problems with sourcing it, unlike supermarkets, whose produce is largely-sourced from overseas countries like Poland & Romania.”

Our dedicated staff are carefully fulfilling and despatching orders as they come in.  We cover all areas across the south of the UK, including London and will deliver free of charge across Wiltshire and surrounds.  We are more than happy to assist the public who have now been told to stay at home by the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson.”

Walter Rose is offering a FREE home delivery service for customers across Wiltshire aimed at minimising the spread of Coronavirus.  Walter Rose will also deliver up and down the country for a small delivery fee, including into London.

The award-winning butchers shop in Devizes is taking their locally sourced, top quality meat, fish, vegetable boxes, eggs, milk and delicatessen items in Swindon, as well as to addresses up and down the country as concerns grow about Covid-19 infection.

Steve continued: “The supermarkets are making people wait, often weeks, for the next available delivery slot – This can add to already heightened levels of anxiety.   Our customers can rest-assured that they will receive beautiful local produce, within a day of placing the order.  It is this impeccable, well-organised service and optimum product quality that has built our reputation over the last forty-four years.  We are proud to be able to help at this difficult time.”

Walter Rose are urging customers to tell friends and family about this fantastic service with a far faster turnaround than many other delivery options, with excellent quality and service guaranteed.

The Cook family have run the butchers shop on Sidmouth Street, Devizes for forty-four years, and prides themselves at being at the heart of the community as well as professional kitchens on a national level. Today, brothers Jack and Charlie Cook head-up the business as a local retail and national online and catering butchers.

Top quality local beef, lamb, pork and poultry is on offer, as well as award-winning sausages in seventeen varieties, fresh Cornish fish and a fully stocked deli counter with over fifty different cheeses and a fantastic selection of condiments, biscuits and sweet treats.  Eating great quality produce not only boosts overall health and maintains strength but helps to cheer people up in these uncertain times.

Jack Cook added: “Self-isolation is an act of care for your community, as well as yourself.

“Our more vulnerable customers are anxious about visiting some shops and worried about the possibility of having to stay at home at some point in the future.

“Offering delivery to the door and picking up other essential items en route, while Covid-19 is around is our attempt to reassure and thank our customers for taking the responsible step of self-isolating.

“If we all think of our community and each other first, rather than just ourselves, we believe our whole society will cope much better.”

Brother, Charlie Cook concluded: “It is important that we all do our bit to help each other in tough times like these.

“This kind of togetherness is the kind of glue that holds everyone together.

“Using our fleet of twenty-five refrigerated vans to ensure we deliver fresh produce to our customers in perfect condition seems the natural thing to do and common sense, when residents, especially the elderly and high-risk groups are being advised to stay indoors.

We’re still here at the end of the phone for a chat and are more than happy for customers to call the shop on 01380 722335 to make their orders.  We can send out price lists if required.
