As major supermarket chains brace for panic buying, we checked the slots available for delivery in Nottingham this week. There are signs people could start stocking up ahead of the potential announcement of new restrictions.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson is expected to make a statement to the nation on television on Tuesday, September 22.

New restrictions have already been introduced – including a ban on gatherings over six years old and on companies having to take data for tracking and tracing.

Now Mr Johnson is expected to warn that there could be more to come – with the potential for a national ‘blackout’.

For Nottingham city center, the next available Tesco slot was Wednesday between 3 and 4 p.m.

Sainsbury’s did not have delivery slots available until Friday, September 21. The next available slot for Asda in Nottingham is Saturday morning between 6 a.m. and 8 a.m.

Currently, the next time slot available for Morrisons is between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. on Sunday, September 27.

The wait to access the Milk and More website was 41 minutes with 258 customers also in the queue this morning as the company reported that its website was down.

New rules could mean a partial two-week lockdown, with some businesses shutting down, people having to work from home, and a 10-hour curfew at pubs and restaurants.

Tesco, which has doubled its online shopping capacity to 1.5 million slots per week, is now full until Wednesday, according to The Mirror.

The report says Ocado now has a three week waiting list for deliveries and Sainsbury’s is experiencing “high demand.”

Andrew Opie, Head of Food and Sustainability at the British Retail Consortium, said: “We urge consumers to be considerate and buy food as they usually would during this difficult time.”

A supermarket worker told the Mirror: “Some people definitely panic. We have 4,000 more items this weekend than usual.

“We have seen an increase in the number of people over the past few weeks.

“When the panic buying started months ago, we hadn’t experienced it. We are ready now.
