    Just checked my parcel force status on my parcel from zooplus, it said it was loaded for delivery for this morning which means it should have been delivered today, right? But then i am also aware it is good friday, do you think that might be why it hasn't arrived? and unlikely it will come this monday either?

    That's unlucky!! You might get it tomorrow, that's not a bank holiday is it? I got mine on a sunday once!

    It's really annoying cause it means we will have to run to pets at home tomorrow and grab some natures menu otherwise their cupboard is bare almost :D forgot about the silly bank holidays!

    It will most likely come tomorrow. Or will you not be around?

    Parcelforce do normal deliveries on Saturday so I would think it would come then :)

    I've had zooplus deliveries by Parcelforce on a Saturday more than once,so you hopefully will get a delivery tomorrow.

    Ive had PF come on a Saturday without it being paid specially. i think thats only if you want next day delivery on a Friday that they charge extra, and if you want to rearrange delivery on a saturday (a whopping £12) but I think if the delivery day happens to fall on a saturday they still come out!

    I had a Parcelforce delivery on a Sunday once too, early in the morning at 7am. Not sure if I appreciated that early wakeup call because the delivery was supposedly loaded for delivery on Saturday (promised date of delivery) and never came that day.

    I had some normal post come on a Sunday too! I think it was to catch up with the backlog the snow created..

    I use it because I can't buy the foods I feed anywhere else as far as I know!

    Pretty much, plus they manage (I still haven't worked this one out) to ship from Germany for free if the orders over £19. Companies in England can't even do that..

    Then there's the bigger amount of choice they offer, which you generally can't buy in England (German, Swedish foods.. etc)

    Range is immensely bigger than other pet stores, and it is cheaper as well. I get oko plus litter and its cheaper from zooplus than from Pets at Home.

    I use it because as mentioned, there is a much larger range of good foods on there plus i really like the free delivery over £19, i find it ridiculous paying £5 for delivery on other sites when i can spend all my money on the food on zooplus, instead of paying for the shipping :D

    Agree :D
    The free delivery is fab, so there isn't a general need to stock up on loads. Although I do it anyway :p
    As Dante also points out, the variety of foods! I do think their prices are very fair too.

    the reason i asked is because i use pet planet but not sure they have the variety zooplus may have, but the food i do order is a good price but you have to spend £29 for free delivery.
