Online shopping


 The Woolworths Online delivery service will continue to deliver food during the crisis.  They have had unprecedented demand and have implemented a “no contact” delivery process in order to keep customers and drivers safe.  The delivery slots are filling up fast, although Woolworths has said that they are continuing to work on increasing capacity to meet the increase in demand.  Delivery costs between R50 and R90 and deliveries are only made to the major metropolitan areas.  There is also a limit of five units of product per customer.
