6. DO I NEED TO BE HOME FOR DELIVERY?

Generally speaking, yes, we require someone to be home to accept the groceries (they can be anyone present in your home regardless of age or relationship).

We will be able to leave groceries outside when explicit instructions are given in the “Special Note/Request to Shopper” section during checkout. Please note, if you give us instructions to leave your groceries outside we are not liable for any damages or any stolen items.

 

7. DO YOU DELIVER TO DORMS?

We CANNOT leave any packages/groceries with the community center or mailroom. Somebody must be home. Please be sure you’re at the dorm within the 2-hour specified delivery window. We have the most trouble with re-deliveries at dorms. It’s very troublesome for our shoppers to come back and redeliver because you’re not present in the delivery window. If shoppers have to make another trip you risk the chance of receiving potentially spoiled (un-refrigerated) foods. 

 

 

8. HOW CAN I ADD ITEMS THAT'S NOT LISTED ON YOUR WEBSITE TO MY ORDER?

Grocery stores carry more than 40,000 items, so it is possible that we have not cataloged an item that you wish to order. If that’s the case, order what we have cataloged and during checkout, list whatever you want that’s not cataloged on our website in the “Instruction for Shopper” section. You can say, “Please add: Tylenol, 10lb Cat Liter, Organic Tomatoes (x4)”. With your instructions, your shopper will attempt his/her best to obtain those items. We will bill you after your delivery for any additional item requests.
