It’s not cheap, however there are services now for getting house delivery from the grocery stores and restaurants in your area.
Usually the business teams up with an outside supplier who hires shoppers and delivery drivers to bring your products to your front porch.
If you spend money ahead online, you can do a contact-free delivery. They’re not all equal in quality, however. My first experience with one particular grocery delivery supplier was mostly uneventful. The driver got all of my items in my order plus arrived sooner than what was projected. I gave them a tip and the two of us both went our separate ways. But the second time I used the same service, the driver had to upgrade two of my items. Of course, this is normal for these services and something you consent to while making an order, however the problem is I never acquired the upgrade product. Either they never grabbed it from the shelf or it fell out of the tote into the back seat of their car. Whatever the reason was, I was without our package of soft popcorn and I wasn’t very happy. I went into the app, made a claim on the missing item, and acquired a refund. But when you’re paying up to 10% more for each item to offset delivery fees, these sort of mistakes make you less likely to use the service again. I am dealing with a similar situation using the cannabis dispensaries’ cannabis delivery services. Some of these legal marijuana stores are good about notifying you when your driver is expected in the area, however others do not. I don’t want to be told while I’m standing in the office at work that our driver is 2 minutes away, when in fact I had stressed an early evening delivery because I was at work until 3 pm.
