Shopping in the age of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
It's really easy to lose track of time and days when you're in the middle of a pandemic and in quarantine…
With countries, states, counties, and cities still on lockdown or slowly starting the reopening phases which are still limiting our abilities to move around freely for our normal shopping trips and with job layoffs and furloughs still effecting so many people most of us are still just focusing on necessity shopping only. So not much has changed... We're still finding ourselves ordering most of those necessities online, either for delivery or for pick-up while the world is still practicing social distancing.
As grocery shopping is an essential part of everyday life, grocery stores are making it even easier for you to get those essentials without ever having to step foot in their store, with grocery pick-up and even delivery directly to your front door. Walmart Grocery has a grocery pickup and even offers home delivery in some areas. Target offers home delivery through Shipt.
Other grocery stores that offer grocery pick-up and/or delivery are Publix, Aldi, Kroger, Wegmans, Costco, Wholefoods, Albertsons, Sprouts…etc. Another service similar to Shipt which partners with hundreds of retailers nationwide that offer grocery delivery straight to your door is Instacart.
Grocery delivery companies are not anything new, some are even solely online grocery companies such as Boxed, Thrive Market, AmazonFresh, FreshDirect and Misfit Market.
In these uncertain times saving money on basic necessities is as important as ever. One of my go-to coupon and coupon code browser extensions is Honey. I also recommend using cashback apps to earn money back on your everyday purchases. My favorite cashback apps are Ibotta, Rakuten, and Fetch Rewards.
Most companies are still experiencing unusually high order volumes, and product shortages resulting in shipping delays and products out-of-stock Due to high demand, orders could be delayed. Please be patient as our truck drivers, stock personnel and delivery drivers work tirelessly to keep up with the current supply and demand.
