Newcastle parents can shop for supplies in the final hours before sun sets on summer holidays

From a new lunch box to some forgotten highlighters and clean white socks to additional uniform items, parents can sometimes find themselves looking for last minute school essentials for their children.

Newcastle parents who find themselves in this situation can take advantage of Amazon Prime Now’s ultra-fast delivery service to stock up and get these items brought straight to their door.

Parents who are Amazon Prime members can place orders using the Prime Now app and choose delivery within a two-hour, same day delivery window as part of their Prime membership or within one hour for £6.99, right up to midnight the evening before the school gates open.


A snapshot of back to school essentials that can be ordered on Prime Now includes Geox Crush Trainers, Trutex Easy Care Shirts, Emma Bridgewater Blue Skies Slim Pencil Case, Collins Essential A5 New Range Project Book and the Oxford Thesaurus of English.


Mum and dads can also stock up on breakfast supplies for their star pupils by ordering grocery items including Warburtons Seeded Batch Bread, Tropicana Orange Juice and Kellogg’s Corn Flakes to accompany their deliveries, keeping the family well fuelled as they take on the first day of school.

Jason Weston, director of Prime Now said: “Prime Now launched in Newcastle in November 2015 and has proved very popular with local shoppers stocking up on last minute items for busy family life. As the start of term approaches, parents in Newcastle who are Prime members can take advantage of our ultra-fast delivery service to get uniforms, shoes, stationary, school bags and much more delivered straight to their door in one or two-hour delivery windows as part of their Prime membership.”

All Prime members can immediately download the Prime Now app, available on iOS and Android devices, to find eligible delivery postcodes and request notification when the service is available in their area. Customers can also visit to learn more about Prime Now and discover eligible delivery postcodes
