Has anyone else gotten a text saying the Ocado warehouse was evacuated due to an incident in a nearby building and to expect higher number of missing items and substitutions?

Lots of conspiracy theories here on the "incident"

*I know I am lucky to have an ocado delivery and am not stealth boasting!!

Probably just a fire next door surely

The last time I got this message it was a fire that was behind it.

Yes I did but in the end it was half an hour early. A couple of subs but nothing weird

I would assume a fire but who knows

OP what are your conspiracy theories!?

Do they have more than one warehouse do you know? I’ve got an order coming tomorrow and haven’t heard from them...

Where is this?
Mine comes from Tamworth as far as I’m aware
Delivery due on Monday

Where is here? In your house or your head?

I've had the text too. I had a quick google as I'm nosy but nothing came up, so I'll see what I get in my shop tomorrow 🤷🏼‍♀️

Yes I’ve had the text about an order coming tomorrow afternoon

All of the conspiracy theories were with my DC (19 and 23) over dinner because we have absolutely nothing left to talk about! grin

Lockdown clearly melting my brain. DD and I have binge watched Gilmore Girls-all 7 seasons and I have lost my mind

You must be near me as I had the same text but from Tesco and I know both warehouses are next to each other! My order arrived 5hrs late and lots of items missing....

JinglingHellsBells Fri 19-Jun-20 21:09:17

I've never 'gotten' anything in my life @mumsiedarlingrevolta.
Got, perhaps, but gotten? Nope. Not in the US.

mumsiedarlingrevolta Fri 19-Jun-20 21:09:59

@JLbaby I just would like to know what I am getting so I can plan accordingly.

I also am taking substitutions I don't want but starting to be annoying... how bad was you delivery? Mine first thing tomorrow so no recovery time

Sorry about the daily fail link but this is the incident very near to the Ocado warehouse my shopping comes from. If you don’t want to click on daily fail google explosion Erith.

Butterer Fri 19-Jun-20 21:11:20

What on earth were your conspiracy theories? confused

mumsiedarlingrevolta Fri 19-Jun-20 21:12:14

@JinglingHellsBells apologies-was replying to @missmouse101 but clearly it is my fault and not america's stars hollows fault.

Pretty bad to be honest. However it was Tesco and not Ocado, I’ve always found Ocado much better but can’t get a slot for love nor money at the moment! Out of 45 items 10 were missing and 2 more damaged.

mumsiedarlingrevolta Fri 19-Jun-20 21:18:47

@JLbaby such a pain as we are trying to use ocado slot only and not go to shops (asthma and other underlying conditions in household) so it is frustrating but clearly this is one of those things that can't be helped.
Hopefully the wine comes grin

Yep, I got a message that they might be late although it didn't say anything about a higher level of substitutions. I just had one item missing but rather than being late, the driver turned up 2 hours early without calling ahead! Just as I was getting in the bath angry

iVampire Fri 19-Jun-20 21:21:38

I’m now wondering where my Ocado orders start life (must ask a friendly driver)

Unaffected today, and only one substitution (branded crisps instead of Waitrose Essential)
