Recently, many of us have been forced to rethink our grocery shopping trips. Many people, especially those more vulnerable to viruses, have been hoping to find a delivery or pick up option to avoid stepping into the store at all. While these services generally come at an additional cost, they may be worth some peace of mind. Read carefully and pay attention to any fees; remember that Instacart and Shipt shoppers rely on tips as well (and they are working very hard right now).
Currently, most stores are working at or beyond capacity for these services (and trying to hire more help). Home delivery and store pick up slots may have very limited availability – and some stores may have no availability at all (or may have temporarily suspended their services). Have your list ready and keep checking for openings! Schedule them now, even if they’re a week in advance, and try to anticipate your needs as best as you can; many services may allow you to modify your list before the day of pick up.
