I live within 2 miles of 3 grocery stores. I don’t mind grocery shopping and neither does my husband. We don’t have small children at home and my husband is now retired. You would think we would have jumped on the delivered grocery bandwagon when we were stretched for time? Well, never too late!
I saw Costco was offering free grocery delivery with a minimum of $35.00 order. Not hard to do with Costco. I needed a few items that I buy from Costco but the warehouse is 6 miles from my home and in a traffic area and it was after 3 PM on a Friday.
So I took the leap and ordered the 5 items I needed then threw in some toilet paper because it is bulky and why not?
Seemed easy peesy.
The Groceries were supposed to be delivered in 2 hours; it was over 3 hours until my doorbell rang. I ordered organic lettuce and was delivered non-organic lettuce that I didn’t notice until the next day.
I called and complained and was treated with sincere apologies and my account was credited. All right, that was nice and easy!
It took me about 10 minutes to order, signing up as a new customer. Had I driven to the store it would easily have taken 90 minutes or more. Complaining and getting resolution was another 10 minutes, so I am still ahead of the game!
I run an online store so the irony is not lost on me that I am slow to join the online delivered grocery shopping game. The advantages of online grocery shopping seem to be clicking with me.
I don’t know if I will become an online grocery shopper all the time but it certainly is a great option.
Are you a delivered grocery shopper?
