Local Grocery Delivery Services for DFW Residents
While we aren’t suffering through a polar vortex like some of our Northern neighbors (thank goodness) here in North Texas, we do have days the thought of going to the grocery store sounds like a cruel punishment. Of course, there are other things too that pop up just when the milk runs out as well. Things like the flu, a new baby or sick kid make a run to pick up needed items all but impossible.
Even though Amazon Fresh can help on those days you plan ahead of time. There are sometimes you need your items sooner than later. So, what can you do? Well, the grocery gods have smiled down upon us as more and more stores are going for same delivery options. Which is great for those times we need to fill the cupboard with your favorite treat only one store carries but can’t get out of the house.
Grocery delivery isn’t just for when you homebound or sick. A busy schedule can hinder trips to the market just as fast. With local grocery delivery, most of the time you can shop online, schedule your delivery time and presto! One more thing you can check off your never-ending to-do list. It’s almost like having a personal assistant.
Local Grocery Delivery Options
Ready to feel the relief of a completed shopping trip without the hassle of getting out of your house to get it done? For some grocery stores, you can go directly to their site and select the delivery options from there, or if you have multiple favorite places to shop, you should try Instacart.
Instacart is a local grocery delivery service that has multiple grocery store options and, in some cases, can deliver in an hour! Lifesavers. Availability is based on your location, but you could choose from:
- Whole Foods
- Tom Thumb
- Market Street
- Central Market
Instacart has a very easy-to-use platform, plus you get texts from shoppers as they pick out your items, questions about substitutions and when they are on the way to your home. Plus, their customer service makes it super easy to report things like bad bananas and will resolve your issue quickly.
Another thing stores are starting to do to make our lives easier, is offer car pickup. For example, both Walmart and Target in Grapevine provide the ability of car pickup. All you have to do is fill up your cart online, set your pickup time and let them do the rest. No more having to wrestle your kiddos out of the car or put matching clothes on to run your errands. Be sure to check your specific location for this option.
Plus, if going into Target is your bank account’s evil nemesis your budget will thank you.
