Good news for anyone who wanted to get more into cooking at home… Now is definitely the perfect time.
Grocery stores may have more limited hours, but they’re still open and working hard to make sure we all have access to the things we need. If going into the store isn’t something you’re feeling up for, there are so many options for curbside pick-up and delivery around Columbus.
Some of these services are experiencing longer-than-usual wait times, which is to be expected in a situation like this, so just plan ahead and do your ordering a few days before you are in need.
I can’t wait to see the wonderful things you all create in your kitchen, so you’d better share all of the details on Instagram and tag us using #columbusnavigator.
Details: Want to go Krogering without actually going into Kroger? No problem. Kroger offers grocery delivery through Instacart, and you even get free delivery on your first order.
Details: Amazon Fresh is a great option for those of you who already do most of your shopping on Amazon anyway. It’s included in your Amazon Prime membership, but be advised, they are having some delays with certain products right now, so just be patient and remember that even though it’s all online, actual people are working really hard to put your order together.
Details: Curbside pick-up at Giant Eagle is such an awesome program. Check to see if your local store offers this service, then all you have to do is order online and pick it up.
Details: Walmart offers both pick-up and delivery for online grocery orders, depending on the location. It’s the perfect place to order from when your list is giant and random. Also, don’t hate me, but not having to actually go into Wal-Mart makes shopping there sound a whole lot more appealing.
Details: Boxed is sort of like what would happen if Costco was an online service. Items available come in bulk and although they’re typically known for their 1-3 day delivery, they are experiencing slightly longer delivery times of up to 4 days. So just plan ahead!
Details: Meijer offers both delivery and pick-up at their various locations. For delivery, there’s a $9.95 fee and pick-up comes with a $4.95 fee. Pick-up orders can usually be retrieved within the hour, but with the influx of demand on our grocery stores, you should definitely call your local store to confirm.
Details: Weinland’s Market offers grocery delivery through Instacart. The best part is that this also includes their prepared food items, which are a great go-to option for families hunkering down at home.
Details: Through Amazon Prime, members can have food delivered or pick it up at the store. COVID-19 can’t keep you from getting your organic goodies, my friends.
