December 28, 2020: No Contact Grocery Shopping
Even though the coronavirus vaccine has arrived in Florida, we still have to take care, perhaps even more care now that the virus is peaking again. Since we still need groceries, no matter the rate of virus spread, here are suggestions for getting groceries the safest way possible. This information is provided courtesy of Indianhead resident and retired Sociology professor Leslie Innis.
To use Publix, Walmart and Target no-contact grocery shopping, you must have a computer, Internet and a credit or debit card. All three stores will assemble a grocery order and have it ready for pick up inside or outside a store. All also deliver to homes.
There are variations among the three providers. For example, Publix adds a 10% fee onto its in-store shopping while Target and Walmart do not. Not all items are available via on-line ordering at Target. There are different minimum order requirements: $10 at Publix and $35 at Walmart. Delivery fees vary: $7.95 at Walmart, $9.99 at Target and Publix is free for orders over $35. Times between ordering and pick up vary.
Go to the on-line store apps and order the groceries including selecting the method of pick up or delivery.
If it is just too complicated to order on-line, call Neighbor to Neighbor in the Nenes (850-901-7818) and we will walk you through it.
