Certainly, if you have pre-paid for and booked any items in advance which the store will have prepaired then we can collect and deliver them to you. Please fill in our Click & Collect booking form to request this service.




Will you visit more than one shop?


Yes, we can visit multiple stores and they do not have to be the same store type. So whether you required carrots or wall paint, we have you covered.




How much does it cost?


The total cost of the goods purchased on your behalf from the store. Plus our shopping & delivery fee. Our base rate shopping fee is £4.50 and our base rate delivery fee is £4.99. Our base rate fees are based on shopping for 10 items or less, from a single store and delivering to an address is within 1.5 miles of the store. The store must be located within the Cheltenham or Tewkesbury area. e.g. if you request 9 items from a single store within 1.5 miles of your address, and the items purchased come to a total price of £25.45. You will be required to pay: £25.45 (goods) £4.50 (shopping fee) £4.99 (delivery fee) Total amount payable at point of delivery = £34.94 Please note additional fees will apply if delivering to address that is more than 1.5 miles from a Cheltenham or Tewkesbury store, when visiting multiple store, the store itself is located outside of the Cheltenham/Tewkesbury area, and/or more than 10 items have been requested. The total fees applied to the order will be recorded in the order confirmation.




Why do I have to pay for shopping & delivery?


We acknowledge that customers can experience free delivery and free services from larger international on demand companies or supermarket chains. However, the compromise is that you as the customer may have to purchase large quantities of goods and/or the stores are charged hefty fees for access to services and/or the drivers may be paid unfairly. At Penny & Worth Ltd we deliver a bespoke personal service that looks to offer fair & ethical services in which the customer, the store and the errand runners are not penalised for accessing the services. Our Errand Runners are self employed, but we still believe in ethical pay for their services. We would not be able to provide a bespoke local convience service without their time. It is our Errand Runners who incur the expense associated to the purchase and running cost of the delivery vehicles, the insurance and fuel cost. They are not able to earn any profit of the any goods sold. So they recieve 100% of the delivery fee.




When & how do I pay?


At the point of delivery you will be informed of the cost of the goods and given a copy of the store receipt. You will also be provided with the breakdown of the service delivery costs. The Errand Runner will have a merchant terminal to take secure payments through debit/credit card (including Amex) chip & pin, contactless and/or apple/google pay.




Is there a minimum order?


No, there is no minimum order requirement.




Can I schedule a regular delivery?


Yes, if you have a daily, weekly or monthly shop you can let us know your shopping list and we will schedule the shop and delivery at the time that suits you.




Do you offer an unpacking service?


Yes, if you would like the errand Runner to unpack the delivery and stock your cupboards/fridge then this would be an additional obe off fee of £5.00. If you will not be present at the home when the Errand Runner attends please ensure you have informed us in advance of means to access the property. Please note our Errand Runners are all DBS security & criminal background checked.
