It comes as supermarkets are preparing for the festive season earlier this year as customers look to spread the cost of Christmas amid the rising cost of living.
Morrisons will be opening its booking system to all shoppers on 26 October. The supermarket already gave its delivery pass shoppers early access to delivery slots from 19 October.
Most other major supermarkets have also confirmed when their Christmas delivery slots will open, with many to be available from this week.
Asda is opening its booking system to all shoppers on 25 October and will be offering more than one million home delivery and click-and-collect slots for the week before Christmas.
Sainsbury’s delivery pass holders have been able to book their Christmas food order from 17 October, and booking opened to all other customers from 24 October.
