Guess what Columbus? Meijer delivers groceries to your home and it’s AMAZING!
Summer is here and that means I no longer have 3 less kids to run errands with. Everybody is home, all the time, leaving me with no choice but to take them on all my errands. We take a step back during the summer, slowing things down, but we still need to eat. When I take the kids to the grocery store with me it becomes a constant chorus of can we buy this? I end up spending way more than I wanted to, forgetting stuff I needed and buying junk I didn’t want in my house. All because I am distracted by the kids.
I love my local Meijer but it is just far enough away I can’t make a quick run. Thankfully Meijer has partnered with Shipt to deliver groceries right to your door. That’s right they deliver groceries right to your door. Shipt is an awesome app that allows you to place a grocery order from your phone. Then you choose a one hour window for delivery of your groceries. Once your order has been claimed you will get texts from your shopper with any questions, this in my opinion is the best part. If they are out of something you get a text telling you and listing options for replacements. I love this direct line of communication with your personal shopper.
You can also add special requests to your order and even modify it if they are not already shopping for you. I had some odd requests that I needed recently. I went on Meijer’s website and used it to see if my local store had what I was looking for (balloon hand pump and fishing line) they did and I added these items to my special request section. My shopper found them and they were delivered with my groceries, I was so happy!
The driver stays in contact right up to the point of alerting you that they are in your driveway. Everything I ordered was delivered and the freezer items were even in coolers so they were colder than when I drive home with them.
Shipt delivery service is $15 a month or $99 for a year unlimited. You only need to spend $35 at Meijer to place a delivery order. I do recommend tipping your driver so that is another expense to consider. This service is amazing for busy families and really anyone and sign up now for Shipt and get $10 back!
Thank you to Shipt and Meijer for providing a credit so I could try this service, all opinions are my own.
