Check & Reserve

A great way to check stock, the latest prices and reserve products at your local store. Over 15,000 products available to reserve.

Check & Reserve is available on all items that can be reserved in store for collection and do not require home delivery. If in stock, they will be available for immediate collection and held until the end of the next working day. Please note that some products cannot be reserved for store collection without prior payment. This is to ensure that we can satisfy all orders, especially where a product is popular.

Any item not in stock at the store today can usually be ordered for you from our warehouse, to collect within 3 working days.
