Local Suppliers offering deliveries:

PlumVanilla delivering veg boxes and meals within a 2 mile radius of Narberth

In Narberth the food shops are open and will take telephone orders by debit or credit card and deliver to your home.  Their phone numbers are:

Wise Buys – 01834 861880
Cost Cutter  – 01834 860228
Spar – 01834 860273
Ultracomida – 01834 861491

Kilgetty Co-op – 01834 812457 The Co-op does deliver, but only if you go there yourself and fill your trolley – they will then deliver what you’ve bought to your home.  They don’t take orders over the phone or online.

CKs  – 07741 546374.

If someone is able to visit a shop for you, they should if possible pay by contactless card to avoid them or the assistant handling money. 

Pharmacies
The two pharmacies are also open but the arrangements are different at each and might change.  You have to queue outside and wait for someone to come to the door to serve you.  They too will arrange deliveries:

Lloyds High St  – 01834 860486
Lloyds Health Centre –   01834 861294

Other shops
Some other shops, while closed, are still taking orders over the phone, to be paid by card.  E.g. some cafes are doing takeaways, and  the museum bookshop will order any book published in the UK and deliver it to you  (01834 860500 – leave a message if necessary – or email info@narberthmuseum.co.uk )  If you want something from one of the other shops, it’s worth phoning them to see.
