Today, Wal-mart announced it will expand its delivery service to more of its store for $98 per year ...
I was fortunate that a Wal-mart was built 1/2 mile from my home after Bob-O was killed ...
Why didn't they deliver 12 years ago!
But, this is great news for those of you raw, in recovery mode, etc. Convalescing is better for you than going out to get taken down by a trigger &/or anxiety attack ...
Take advantage of this service when it comes to your local Wal-mart ...
Take care of yourself!
Depending where you are located there are other delivery services that offer free delivery to your door or your home for various fees. I've stopped driving because of insurance fees and gas and car maintenance in my state and for $49 or $99 a company our of Alabama called Shipt delivers 24/7 anything my local Meijer grocery or Target store sells. Less than a mile from my home and the mkt we shopped the most at for decades is where they shop for me now. Lifesaving. Costs a bit more but I stopped lavish family dinners so I could have this service. It is priceless...especially if you live alone, don't have others nearby to help you and are still independent or are ill and unable to shop/drive etc. I also have Amazon Prime I treasure them for their service and policy. Getting old is a true challenge and I am ever so grateful these services are in my area . Worth checking out.
SHIPT is a new one for me and thanks for bringing it to our attention, LJ. It was easy to Google it, click on the "Contact Us" button and put in my zip code. Unfortunately, they are not in my area. But, Target and Walmart ship to me because I use them. Just not for groceries yet. I'm still out in a very rural area and learning about possible resources is always good. Meanwhile, I drive into the city once a month and stock up, keeping two freezers at home as full as possible. A big pantry has lots of canned goods and always a box of powdered milk sitting on the shelves. I figure if I'm prepared for an emergency, it probably won't happen! Thanks again for letting us all know about this service.
Kroger companies will shop for you and deliver the goods to your door. I think I recall Susan saying that they would even stock your freezer and refrigerator.
Now that she's passed, My only gripe is that when you order something, the clerk doing the shopping for you just reaches in and grabs the first (whatever) you asked for. Myself, I will look at the produce and pick what I think is the ripest, or the cut of meat that meets my idea of the best of the bunch.
I go into town once a month with a list of things I need ranging from food/produce, to a trip to the computer "Candy Store" Micro Center, to Home depot and PetsMart etc. When I'm done with shopping and errands, I then stop at a nice restaurant, and have a nice early evening dinner that someone else cooked, and drive home.
The only problem is that sometimes, it takes me 10 trips back and forth from the attached garage to the house, to empty the truck, and then another hour to repackage the foods and freeze/refrigerate the food.
