Next has gone, as not essential - and guess a lot of other stuff will soon follow

Just a little heads up in case people need anything non essential

If it's non-essential you don't need it, you want it.

Mike Ashley is already composing his letter to the government.
Seriously, I guess the point is that delivery services should be used for essentials rather than consumer goods.

I've been ordering prints and music stuff from struggling artists I like. Non-essential for me but essential for them to pay the bils.

I suppose they could always delay postage until later.

I guess small operators will be ok because in reality that will be on e person taking something from a spare room and taking it to post office - not a big warehouse of pickers and the like

Post Office still is generally functioning OK, although our main one (inside Budgens) has been shut for several days, I guess down to staffing issues. I did check out rated to send a parcel via Hermes a few days ago and they had massively hiked their rates.

essentials online for me would be DIY shops, if something breaks and needs fixing.... and electrical goods for the house.

But then scale that up across all of the 'non essential' things and there lies the problem. It needs to be a stricter lock down if to be done properly. Individuals selleing on eBay etc as well is still happening.

One thing we’ve ordered is just bits for the kids - crafty bits etc as just don’t have huge amounts of stuff like that to keep them occupied because of their ages as yet

Indeed- and we have been encouraged to continue online shopping to avoid goign to shops etc.

I closed all the items I had out on eBay a while ago and have also forcibly shut down my local Freecycle group.

Likewise, only a few eBay bits for me and also stuff I had on Facebook Marketplace. If everybody takes the approach "I am only..." you scale that up and that 'only' becomes a massive problem.

I've got a squeaky seat post. It's driving me up the bloody wall. I've taken it out, wiped it down, cleaned out the tube it goes into. Helps for about 30 minutes and then it's back again.

I gather Royal Mail are creaking under the strain. Lots of sickness in my local office I've been told - and as staff numbers were cut to the bone anyway, I would think that deliveries will be reduced to 2 or 3 days a week within a fortnight or so.

Even when online shopping you are relying on people having to go to work in warehouses to assemble and post your goods , why should they have to go to work when you don’t , if you need something to do then why not register for the volunteers to help other people
