    Order you’r stuff online… choose a pickup date an time… they email or text its ready then you go get it.!!!

    You can order stuff other than groceries like a can of 3 n 1 oil an a tube of grease an flashlights.!!!

    YOu drive up… they put you’r stuff in the back of the truck an then wave good-by to you

    That's funny, I thought once I'd logged in, I wouldn't see the ads.

    Problem: I like to see what I'm buying before I pay for it. I like to choose my own produce.

    Can't you arrange to exchange or return items you are not happy with?

    If you order on a regular basis they might be fairly accommodating.

    When the virus hit in March I became a whole lot less fussy with my shopping and was in and out very quickly.

    Getting back to something like normal now but still don't hang around like I see some others are inclined (no retail therapy for me)

    I fail to see the convenience of that procedure.
    I'm quite happy to avoid Walmart and do my grocery shopping every second Friday, at the early seniors' opening, at my usual Food Basics supermarket. They sanitize the hell out every touchable surface, restrict the number of people in the store, have shields over the checkout counters and one-way arrows on the aisles. Otherwise, everything I normally buy is where I expect to find it (amazingly, even the Indian merchandise is arriving on its usual eccentric schedule) and I select items according to mood, whim, sale price, inspiration or any other criteria I feel like applying on the moment. The staff and customers are always considerate and cheerful. Yes, at 7 am, in masks! I'm just now making one with a shark smile on it to give everyone a chuckle next week. It's the high point of my week, one of my few opportunities for human contact, and I'm not wasting it on a drive-by.

    Can you imagine the staff wearing body cams when filling orders, and so allowing customers to view the selected items.

    I'm like Jeeves. I like to go in and buy whatever I want at the moment. I don't even do the early bird thing. I just go to a local neighborhood grocery store, it's rarely crowded and with all the protections in place I see no reason to do otherwise.

    It's the only contact I have with the public for the most part these day. So far so good.

    Can you add a little blood to the sharks smile?

    Our grocery store does something like that. If all the tomatoes look bad the shopper will take a picture of them and say "none of them look good. Do you still want some?"

    Well, that sucks! It was supposed to be the baby shark song.
    Hope I didn't put that one in the imperialist thread.

    I like the online option for a lot of stuff but I want to see my meat and produce. Never did like wallyworld's meat or produce selection. The local supermarket will deliver curbside or to the house. Like their produce and meat (always all quality stuff) and I still want to do the picking myself.

    You have the option to accept subtutions for any item you order... an when you get the email that you'r order is ready they show you the substitutions they made... an if you dont like any of 'em you can just tell 'em to take 'em back when you pick up you'r stuff (an wont be charged for it)... you can also return any item you want after you get it home... but i havent done that so i dont know what the procedures are.!!!

    Yes i was also less fussy when the virus hit so i coud get out of the store quick... an thats one thang thats nice about orderin most items online... is that you can safely take you'r time an be exact in what you want.!!!

    Sinse grocery shoppin is now so easy an lots safer i feel perty happy wit what is now my new normal.!!!

    The instructions for pick-up is to stay in you'r truck an keep you'r windows up -- they will load you'r stuff for you... but lots of times i see people get out... wit-out a mask... an help employees load ther grocerys
