Well, I’ve just been told that Tesco are going to be following Asda in banning the delivery of shopping in carrier bags. I appreciate the reasoning behind this but i can see this having repercussions for the disabled. In my case I can cope with picking up the bags on delivery but having to bag the items from the delivery crate is going to cause me severe pain. A friend who is wheelchair bound happily picks up the carrier bags on delivery but has no practical way to transport items from the crates to bags. With the bagged items then, like myself, he is happy to put away goods over time.
Having the crates delivered to a different area is neither here nor there as then the driver will need to wait for quite a while as items removed from crates to cupboards etc.
When shopping deliveries started it was a godsend but I see this as a definite backward step for those with mobility issues. Very sad.
