I have taken full advantage of the delivery services offered by the local grocery stores in town.
Even if it’s a $6 fee for each order, it saves me the gas money and the stress of being in public in a crowded space.
You can browse the store’s inventory from their website or app and they give you text updates as the order is fulfilled and headed for delivery. They let you checkout all of your items in the store while you are walking around. The app accesses your phone’s camera to use as a barcode scanner. If you want to avoid the lines at checkout, this is a phenomenal way to get in and out of the grocery store quickly. I wish there was an easy way to get in and out of the cannabis dispensary, but they’re overrun with new customers now that my state has legalized cannabis for recreational use on top of medical. Despite making online orders for express pickup, I’m often waiting up to an hour in the lobby just for my chance to go to the backroom to make my purchase. That’s one reason why I am so fond of making delivery orders with the cannabis dispensary. As long as my orders are over $200 before discounts, I can get free home delivery. If you order by 12pm, you can get same day delivery as well. It’s hard to be using the cannabis delivery service when you’re making large enough orders to make it free. It saves any headaches from waiting in line at the cannabis dispensary when they’re busy.
