When are Iceland branches opening and closing?
Iceland‘s opening hours were reduced during the first lockdown last year, but now most stores have returned to normal.
Each store varies and some still do have the reduced hours, so it’s best if you check the store locator on the supermarket’s website.
Most stores are open from 8am-7pm.
The store says they are prioritising those on the official “shielded” lists of the most vulnerable people.
If that’s you and you’re on the Iceland customer database, then you will have been emailed the offer of priority shopping opportunities and hours.
When is the best time to shop there?
Google has a tracker that lets you to see when the peak times are.
If you search for “Iceland” and then click on your nearest store, it will show a bar chart of when the store’s busiest times are.
Is there a limit on items?
Iceland had limited some products to a maximum of two per customer last year, but there isn’t a limit on items anymore.
But there are still rules in place in-store, for example you will have to wear a face covering unless you are exempt, and you are asked to socially distance within the store.
Can I order online?
You can order online and there are even measures in place to help prioritise vulnerable people.
Anyone can create an account online with Iceland and order shopping for delivery, for flexible dates and times.
If you spend £35 you will qualify for free delivery.
The minimum order value for online orders is £25 plus an additional delivery charge of £2.
Or you can use the supermarket’s in-store delivery service, and this is free for a minimum order of £25 too.
You simply pick out your groceries in-store like usual, but Iceland can offer to deliver the goods home for you which is convenient if you have public transport to catch and too many bags to carry.
The store currently have plenty of delivery slots to chose from, but demand for online orders can mean this will change from time to time.
In some stores they are trialling same-day delivery too.
