Have you ever had your groceries delivered?

I've done it a few times when I just don't have the time to do it and I love it. They only charge $10 to bring your groceries to you. They have the same thing on line as they do in the store, you just click on what you want, and they will go ahead and get the order together then deliver them. If they are out of something in particular, they'll call you and ask if they can replace it with something else at the same price.

Yes and I absolutely love it. I have 2 little ones so it's extremely hard to go shopping with them and not have a meltdown in the middle of it or someone running off in the other direction. I just order and the next day they are there and I find that I spend less a lot of the time. Also, they were late last time and I called to ask if they could credit my delivery. They did!

We have Tesco and Asda, Somerfield, Co-operative and one or two smaller stores deliver too. We are well served. :) We like to do a monthly shop to get all the heavy stuff delivered, like cans, particularly cat food and all the cans for the larder. We also notice that the quality of vegetables delivered is superb. There isn't really a down side, it's marvelous. When errors are made, we always seem to get additional compensation in some way.

No I've never tried this, but I have seen something called "Pea Pod" which is supposed to be this service. While I prefer not to pay the delivery charge and like to chose my own foods, I can see why this would appeal to people. This would be great for older people who no longer drive or people that have just come home from the hospital and are recuperating, etc. etc.

i'm not old or recuperating, but i do like it because i'm very busy with working and my son and all of the other responsibilities in my life, so it really is convenient for me, instead of dragging my little one around a grocery store, I can have the grocery store come to me :)

ye i've done it a few times before when ive been ill or really tired. i prefer doing it myself though. i dont like it when something isnt in stock and they give you something random as i'm really fussy about what i eat!

luckily the store that i use will call me and ask me what i'd like to replace it with because i'm pretty specific about the products that i use.

oh that sounds fantastic! It really would be a time saver for me and who would love not to have to deal with crowded isles and long check out lines..I don't think I have a store around me that is doing this yet but I can't definetly see how this will be something alot more people are using in the future...

Groceries - Grocery Shopping
It is SUCH a time saver. Whoever thought to do that sure deserves some praise, because I just love having that service available to me. Look and see if either Shoprite or Acme will do it. You can also use your supercard online as well.

My mom used to have the groceries delivered a few years ago, it really is a great service. The only thing we didn't like about it was the few times we ordered bananas they were always really green.

I nearly always get my groceries delivered, it's so much easier for me. I live about a mile and a half from the supermarket, and it costs me the same for the delivery fee, as it would to get a taxi back with all my shopping. There are also sometimes some offers that you can only get online.

you get virtually anything delivered here. You only have to call and make youe order. But I guess it is better to sometimes go out and see what operates there.

Nope, nobody in my area will deliver grocceries. I think that is the old style of getting grocceries.
