A person who was expecting delivery on Monday is still waiting but is unable to follow through due to “issues of their ending”. Another added that they have also been waiting for their package since Sunday, with no way to check when it will arrive.

Another frustrated user said: “Due to delivery of a bunch of Waitrose flowers yesterday for someone’s birthday. No luck and no app updates. Any idea where are they? I highly doubt they are fresh now!”
