Part of the supermarket chain ‘Auchan’, Chronodrive is the internet self-collection branch of the shop. Order online, and collect at a time of your convenience. If you don’t find time to collect it, you don’t pay. Otherwise, you get 12 hours to make your collection. Drive up (think McDonalds drive through) pay at the machine, without getting out of your car, then drive up and a lovely person will put the shopping in the car for you.

“Never again will I drag my kids around the supermarket, this has truly revolutionised my life!. A fantastic service, it is so easy, I just wish they would come home and unpack the bags as well!” (HS, November 2011)
