Re: Groceries order and pick up?

Well all of those things have crossed my mind. I would only order dry ingredients to pick up.

I would go in to pick my own fruits, veggies, meats plus other refrigerated or frozen items.

If they give me any old items they would get them back.

Re: Groceries order and pick up?

I have done this with Kroger once and Walmart several times.  At Kroger they substituted regular cottage cheese for the lowfat cottage cheese I ordered.  They substituted something else, too, but I forget what it was.  They told me about this when they brought it to my car and asked me if it was all right.


At Walmart they picked a cottage cheese that was going to expire in a day or two.  Since this was a large carton it was unacceptable to me.  I called them about it when I got home and they credited my account.  There is no way to make notes at Walmart to check for expiration dates.  I don't think you can do that at Kroger either.


I did not order meat or produce from either place, because I wouldn't trust someone else to pick that out for me.  Overall I was satisfied but usually don't mind doing the shopping myself.

Day after day the whole day through, wherever my road inclined, four feet said 'I'm coming with you!' and trotted along behind. Kipling

Re: Groceries order and pick up?

I  order from in my area very good service. Yes you can leave a note to Watch Exp. dates on Pershibles and also if you want to substitute and item and in case a wrong item  delivered or price difference they will credit your acct. right away the Delivery person I leave a note to call me like if I really need an item and if out o.k to sublstitue for me it is Paper towels and cat litter.I must have about  every delivery so I do a lot of clean up for my 2 elderly cats, and   I get a choice of  2 grocery stores to choose delivery one is a local store and other is Target which I like best I like their paper towels and cat litter not too expensive lasts a while longer 

You should try Shipt if  it is in your area.

Re: Groceries order and pick up?

I thought about shipt but found this service a bit off-putting because I read that they markup the prices of groceries.


i would like to try home delivery sometime though, maybe a different service.
