If you prefer to stay out of grocery stores and pharmacies while the pandemic continues, you may want to consider using a delivery service or take advantage of curbside pick-up.

Following is a list of grocery and drug stores stores offering curbside pick-up and delivery so you can still get your essentials without risking unnecessary exposure for you and your family.

With grocery curb-side pick-up, you don't even have to get out of your car. Some stores offer this option at no extra charge, but other stores charge a small fee. Most stores charge a fee for grocery delivery to your home and it is usually higher than the fee for curbside pick-up.

Keep in mind that grocery store stock is variable right now and some of the items you order may not be available. Please be kind to the shoppers who are helping to keep you safe by doing your shopping so you do not have to go in to the store. It is not their fault if the store does not have everything you ordered. If you are able, a larger tip than you may normally give a delivery person is very much appreciated by these folks who are risking their own health to do these jobs.

Although most grocery stores have hired extra staff to help with pick-up and delivery orders, some stores still have a wait timesof a couple days to pick up an order.
