Supermarket customers have been complaining their deliveries have been cancelled due to snow across the UK. One Tesco customer explained her delivery has been cancelled due to “severe weather conditions.”
Tesco claimed 99 percent of orders would not be affected by the snow.
A spoles person said: “Our colleagues are working hard to deliver more online orders than ever before.
“However, difficult weather conditions in some parts of the country mean that we’ve had to cancel a very small number of deliveries today. We are sorry for the inconvenience this has caused and would like to apologise to any customers affected.”
It’s not just supermarkets struggling with the weather.
