STORE wars have been stepped up in Scunthorpe.
One convenience store has decided to take on the likes of the big chain supermarkets at their own game by starting a home delivery service – for free.
MV Express on Oswald Road is offering to drop off groceries worth a minimum of £5.
Booze, cigarettes and pet food are all included in the free service.
The Express store is also offering a parcel delivery service.
Most supermarkets in Scunthorpe operate a free delivery service but many insist on a minimum spend of £20 per customer.
