Postal Deliveries by Royal Mail
Postal Delivery: If you don’t live near our shop, you can still get your Shop Zero favourites! We post orders out to addresses all over the UK by 2nd Class Royal Mail. There is a flat rate cost of £3.95 for a minimum order of £15.
Postal Despatch: We aim to get your orders packaged and out to you within 3 of our working days. This can depending on a number of things: when we receive you order, when the shop is open to pack your order, how busy we are in-store and the number of food items you have ordered (these take longer to pack). Once out with Royal Mail, orders will usually arrive in the next 2-4 days, depending on delivery patterns. We aim to keep in touch with you via email if there are any variations from this.
Occasionally items do get lost in the post. If a parcel hasn’t arrived after 15 working days after it was sent, then Royal Mail will allow a parcel to be classed as lost and allow us to claim for the loss. We can re-send or refund your order.
Sustainable Packaging Policy
Plastic-free deliveries! In line with our sustainable ethos – we will never knowingly include and plastic in our deliveries. We use and reuse recyclable packaging wherever possible. Any tape we add to boxes is made in the UK or EU from Kraft paper and the glue is plant-based. Moreover, the tape is fully home compostable and recyclable. Occasionally, you may find some traditional tape remains on the boxes; removing this can mean that a box become damaged and unusable. So we prefer to keep them intact so we can reuse them. For home deliveries, we love to take back boxes and bags so they can be used again for other orders.
Sustainable Gift Wrapping service
If you are sending a gift, why not take advantage of our sustainable gift wrapping option? When you checkout, just tick the box for Gift Wrapping.
We have carefully selected the materials for our gift box, both to be sustainable and create a luxurious and special feel. Who says sustainable has to be boring or unstylish? These boxes are made from recycled Kraft card boxes. We carefully fill with FSC wood fibres. All these materials can be reused, recycled or composted. We have also put together a range of Zero Waste Gift boxes and kits which are great for presents. Why not take a look?
The box is tied with natural twine and we add a recycled Kraft card gift tag. If you would like us to add a message to the gift tag then note your message in the comments box at checkout. We’d love to make the gift special for your loved one! You could even add a greeting card and message to your order! And you can also specify your gift order to redelivered to a different address. That’s sustainable gift giving sorted and with no plastic in sight.
COVID-19 – changes to service
During the pandemic, our shop has limited opening hours so we are unlikely to post your order on the day that it is placed. We will keep you informed via email about any drastic changes.
We are operating under strict social distancing and hygiene rules. There is only one member of staff working to make up the packages. For postal deliveries, the parcels then delivered to another local business for pick-up by Royal Mail. Strict hand-washing and sanitising guidelines are followed at all times.
Social distancing for home deliveries – When we deliver to your door, we will sanitise our hands before lifting boxes/bags. They will be placed on the doorstep. We’ll knock, then step back and make sure that deliveries has been safely received.
We have a sustainable packaging policy, but because of the limited availability of packaging at the present time, we may need to re-use packaging envelopes that we already have. These may contain some plastic. These items are already in existence so will reduce the need for the production of new items and the resources associated with that. Please reuse these yourself; they will have life left in them.
Please bear with us while we manage this situation the best we can.
