waitrose to offer finance packages to help people afford their shopping

 

In a bold but necessary move, Waitrose have teamed up with Santander to offer all their customers affordable finance packages at the checkout.

The decision was made to entice shoppers into doing a full shop instead of just popping in for a few fancy bits.

The average cost of a weeks shop at Waitrose is currently £1,560 or £32.50 per month over 2 years.

 

A spokesperson for Waitrose gave the following statement:

“Here at Waitrose we pride ourselves on having the freshest and highest quality products for our customers but the level of quality we offer comes at a price.

We aim to help our customers enjoy all of our great products by offering a 0% interest payment plan at the checkout”

A customer added:

“I think its a brilliant idea! ive been meaning to cook eggs royale for my partner for a while now but could never afford £65.50 for a packet of oak smoked salmon or £29.50 for a pot of hollandaise sauce.”

 

Waitrose intend to roll out the new plans in early December, just in time for the big Christmas shop.
