Many people are currently confined to their homes with this shelter in place and need food to eat and household essentials. Sure, the local grocery stores and big department stores are open, but most of their shelves are empty. They may normally offer same-day delivery, but they are booked out for days, even weeks, in advance for home delivery or curbside pickup, and even then you are not guaranteed to get what you ordered.
In This Post:
Where To Buy Groceries Online
The following online stores all have items in stock and should deliver exactly what you order (no unapproved substitutions). Since you are ordering and paying online, there is no human interaction or money being exchange. Plus your order will be delivered directly to your doorstep.
Most of these online stores are considered small businesses and not “big box” stores, so you can also feel good about helping out these businesses in times of trouble.
