Home Delivery Service Extended

Shop Local, Support Local, Stay Safe!

Dear Friends and Customers. Firstly, thank you for your loyal support and especially since March 2020 when we have all found ourselves in a very challenging and worrying time. Initially many of you required a delivery as you were self-isolating or shielding. Over the summer months when things returned to a little more normality, our delivery service reduced but now we feel it needs to be available again fully over the winter months. See our delivery schedule below.

Our commitment to you

Johns will remain open in both villages throughout this next lockdown as an essential service with our main priority being the safety of our staff and customers. Hand sanitiser, protective screens, social distancing and limiting the amount of customers in our stores are all part of our COVID-19 secure policy that has been in operation for many months now. We are here for you to shop safely and with confidence in our stores for all your essentials and treats but if you are staying at home, our home delivery service is available again. To support this we have laid out below the days that we will be delivering to your area. You can simply pick up the phone to your closest Johns’ store, place your order with one of our team members and the goods will be delivered to you on the specified next delivery date. You may prefer to place your order online at Our telephone numbers in Appledore are 01237 429065 and in Instow 01271 860310.

What new products we’ve introduced since Lockdown 1

Behind the scenes we’ve been getting ready for the winter months and another potential lockdown for some time. Our website, now allows you to order online with a full range of deli favourites, every day essentials, Christmas gifts and food for the festive season. We’ve introduced over 500 new delicious food & drink products in store to ensure that we give you the best treats and something to look forward to from delicious independent wines, deli foods from Spain and Italy, fresh and frozen dishes with our kitchens constantly producing homemade meals that you can enjoy at home. A loyalty card scheme is now fully operational giving you exclusive offers and points to save towards a special treat. Our aim is to help you through these times with our quality food and drinks!

December & onwards

Our Christmas order form is now available with all the festive food and drink that you will need to brighten your Christmas. We are encouraging you (where possible) to collect this order rather than a delivery and we will ensure safety, the best of ingredients and our ever present personal service that you have come to enjoy from us. Shop local, support local, stay safe!
