Grocery Delivery & Pick-Up Round-Up

By Emily Savage

With the current shelter in place in many US states, many people are opting for contactless grocery delivery or curbside pick-up.  Chains and local retailers across the country have stepped up and are adjusting to the new normal, offering new options for neighborhoods to get their groceries.  Instacart or Shipt are popular options for many stores, but they can be hard to get delivery dates with so many people vying for spots.  BCB rounded up great meal options as well as a full list of grocery store delivery and pick-up options across the country just for you.

In addition to the “usual suspects,” a few great options to look into for food, produce and grocery delivery include:

Farmbox Direct:  Natural and organic produce sent straight to your door.

GFP Chicago (CHICAGO AREA ONLY!):  Fresh produce box in two sizes sent straight to your home.

Imperfect Foods: This company was founded with a mission to eliminate food waste and build a better food system for everyone. They offer imperfect (yet delicious) produce, affordable pantry items, and quality eggs and dairy delivered to your doorstep.  The BONUS? They pride ourselves on offering up to a 30% discount compared to grocery store prices.

Misfits Market:  A subscription service of sometimes funny looking produce.  They give you the odd balls that taste the same as the produce found at the grocery store.  Another amazing company designed to help eliminate waste.

Raw Generation:  Offers produce boxes, Keto Shakes, juices, cleanses and more…sent straight to your home.

We also are LOVING all of the meal preparation services that make cooking a CINCH!

BCB also compiled a list of all of the grocery stores we know that you love and how you can get your groceries:  pick up, delivery and more. 

Albertsons: DriveUp and Go is free and third-Party options (like Instacart) vary based on location and can be $9.95 per order.

Amazon: Amazon Pantry orders over $35 ship free or are $5.99 for less than $35 orders.  They offer grocery and household essentials, although items tend to be sold out or not available for awhile so it’s good to plan ahead.

BJs: Curbside Pick-up is free or you can order via third party Instacart for $14.99 per order.

Costco: Curbside pick-up is free or two-day delivery is free on orders of $75+ or $3 on orders of less than $75.  You can also order via third-party Instacart for same day delivery (when available) for $9.95 per order.

Hyvee, Price Chopper, Weis, Giant Eagle: These chains are offering drive-up pick-up for free or the following delivery offerings:
Hy-Vee: $9.95 per order
Weis: Delivery via third-party Shipt is $9.99 per order
Price Chopper: Delivery via third-party Instacart is $7.99 per order
Giant Eagle: Delivery via third-party Shipt is $9.99 per order

Instacart: Instacart is a delivery service that does the shopping for you based off of your list at a variety of stores across the country. They deliver straight to your home. You can also make a note to leave on your front porch for no-contact.  Delivery charges vary per store.  With the current environment, however, delivery dates are hard to get for same-day delivery and are averaging a week or so out in some places.  Rumor has it, though, that if you keep checking back for a new delivery date each morning, you might be able to get an earlier delivery date so might be worth a try!?

Kroger Stores INCLUDES Kroger, Ralphs, Dillons, Smith’s, King Soopers, Fry’s, QFC, City Market, Owen’s, Jay C, Pay Less, Baker’s, Gerbes, Harris Teeter, Pick ‘n Save, Copps, Metro Market, Mariano’s: The Kroger Family of stores has free curbside pick-up or the option for Kroger Home Delivery at $9.95 per order. They also have FREE Bulk Dry Goods Delivery on orders of $35 or more.

Meijer: Meijer Curbside pick-up is $4.95 per order or Meijer Home Delivery is $9.95 per order.

Target: Order via their app, and drive-up pick-up is free or get items delivered via third-party Shipt for $9.99/order or free if you’re a Shipt member ($99 per year)!

Walmart: Walmart pick-up is free or they’re offering “Delivery Unlimited” which is $98 per year or $12.95 per month or Pay-per- Delivery is $7.95 to $9.95.

Whole Foods: Free pick-up at the store or they also offer Amazon Prime two-hour delivery that is free only for Amazon Prime Members.  Due to high order volumes, the delivery time can be more than two hours sometimes these days.

Local neighborhood grocery stores like Fresh Market or Sunset Foods are also typically offering free curbside pick up and/or delivery in these times as well.  Smaller local businesses like these are sometimes a nice, calmer environment if you do have to run INTO a store to grab a couple items, and they are really going above and beyond to provide food to families in a safe way.  For instance, the Fresh Market employees themselves are taking orders over the phone and gathering groceries and bringing outside for curbside pick-up.

Also, during this time stores you might not typically think of for groceries might be hidden gems.  Hardware stores for instance, like Mutual Ace Hardware, often times have snacks or smaller pantry items on hand. Also, in cities across the country, local distilleries have transformed their distribution from things like vodka to sanitizer and are offering sales through smaller, local grocery and hardware stores.
