Tech is king, in these tech laden times what does the new landscape of grocery shopping look like in Valparaiso, Indiana or Northwest Indiana for that matter? Here’s what we at MJF Rentals think is on the forefront of grocery shopping for our apartment rental customers.
Amazon Fresh / Amazon Pantry
First, you could always walk to the nearest store, but who wants to drag nine bags of groceries all the way back to their apartment? (Especially if it’s raining, snowing, or bitterly cold outside). This is where online grocery shopping comes in handy.
Now you can simply mark down the items you need to stock up on and your groceries will be delivered to your apartment! If you’re not sure where to start, consider any of these websites, which are great for online grocery shopping:
Amazon has everything from electronics and books to clothing and appliances, so it shouldn’t come as a shock to find out they also have grocery delivery available. AmazonFresh currently serves the San Francisco area, the majority of Southern California and the Seattle area.
With this convenient site, all you have to do is choose a delivery time and date and fill your cart with whatever your heart desires. AmazonFresh even promises that dairy products and perishable items will be delivered the day after you order them.
Amazon Pantry, however, allows you to shop for a wide range of items that you would normally find in a typical pantry, like paper towels, noodles, peanut butter, granola bars, snack cakes and more.
Pantry boxes can hold up to 45 pounds and the service has a flat delivery fee of $5.99, no matter how much is in the box. The site is easy to navigate and will deliver to 48 different states at your convenience, making this a great choice for those of us in Valparaiso, Indiana and the surrounding area.
Peapod is based in our area out of Skokie, Illinois, but operates in other U.S. cities as well. Much like the other grocery delivery websites, when using Peapod all you have to do is choose a date and time you would like your groceries to arrive at your doorstep, and fill your cart with whatever you need.
With Peapod, you can order your food up to two weeks in advance, making it easy to plan ahead. If you’re hosting a get-together and forgot a few ingredients for your chocolate layer cake.
Peapod also has next-day delivery to provide you with what you need. Peapod has more than 12,000 products from which to choose, ranging from health and beauty items to prepared foods, produce and organic foods.
WalMart in Valparaiso, Indiana now offers online grocery shopping with curbside pickup. They’ll even load the groceries into the car for you.
All you need to do is go to WalMart’s website and create an account. As time goes on, you can add items to your list throughout the week as you run out at home and the items will remain in your online cart until you decide to checkout.
Once your’re ready, check out and schedule a pickup time that’s convenient for you. That’s it! No more annoying lines or rude people to deal with.
