Trying to do an ocado order and half the stuff is out of stock. What's going on there? Anyone know what the problem is, or is this going on with all online food orders from supermarkets at the moment. Or am I just buying incredibly popular food?

It's because it is all in my basket for my shop on Thursday!

What is out of stock? They seem to have continual problems with dried pasta.

Have they been bought out by Chavsda?

Are lots of people doing pre-UK holiday shops to drive off with, perhaps? ALways depends very much what day your order is for: if it's a Fri-Saturday, there are always more gaps than early in the week.

I did an order, for delivery in a fortnight afte rmy holiday and had no problems. Everything I wanted was in stock at time of ordering.

Hey Vt - I thought that too. Could be renamed Twasda.

I know, tell me about it.

Never, ever any conchigliette. It's very fucking irritating. My kids won't eat the straight stuff.

My mother says I have spoilt them with my West London ways.

Loads of fruit and veg isn't there, lots of their own brand sliced brown bread, quite a lot of dairy stuff. All categories seem on low stocks.

Have Dale Winton's mob been in on a trolley dash?

Syc - you are a bit posh!

Pennies Mon 27-Jul-09 20:28:17

bellavita - were you hungry when you placed your order then? wink

Pennies Mon 27-Jul-09 20:29:02

Syc, face it. Your mum's right.

bellavita Mon 27-Jul-09 20:30:40

Have just logged in to do a pretend shop for tomorrow; everything seems to be in stock no problem. This is the warehouse in Leeds I think.
