Clanfield Greengrocers complete 2,500 orders

Nigel Hadwen and his team at Clanfield Greengrocers & Florist have completed more than, an astounding, 2,500 bespoke orders for customers in under 5 weeks.

Customers have been placing their orders of fresh fruit, vegetables, pet supplies, birdseed, eggs, pickles and plants to this popular village shop.

Our local greengrocers saw a surge of customers visiting the shop, beginning on Tuesday 17th March; by the end of that week this increase in people made Nigel feel that shopping traditionally would be unsafe for staff and customers, with social distancing rules in mind. Following several days of dealing with customers’ requirements from the shop door, orders via email were introduced and continue to be used with great success.

Nigel commented “We saw shop sales go from busy to hectic and then manic. We had to find a way to serve our customers and keep everyone safe, so electronic ordering is answering that need. Our team has increased from 3 to 6 members of staff and we are always busy.”

Regular posts on Facebook alert customers to seasonal items in stock such asparagus, soft fruit and bedding plants. A new website has been launched where customers can place their orders by 3pm for next working day collection.
