Social Distancing Shopping Tips

We’re all trying to do our part to stay at home to slow the spread of COVID-19, but we all need different essentials to provide for our family’s needs. Check out the below resources for some savvy social distancing options to help you get what you need while staying safe.

  • Chef’s Produce Company – This Texas-based produce wholesaler is helping those in the service industry while providing fresh produce boxes without the grocery store hassle. Each week they’ve been announcing locations to pick up a produce box for $45. For each box sold, Chef’s Produce Company donates $10 to charity helping service professionals in need. Super simple: Pull up to the tent at one of their posted locations, pay the attendant, pop your trunk and they load it up. Easy, fast, tasty. My family tried this out last week and the quality of the food was top notch.
  • Sprouts Farmer’s Market – Check out grocery delivery from Sprouts powered by Instacart. The first delivery is free with a minimum order of $35. Order online through a web browser or the Sprout’s app on your mobile device, schedule your delivery (sometimes as soon as one hour) and receive your groceries at your front door. Check out their COVID-19 policies.
  • Door Dash – Door Dash helps connect you to your favorite restaurants. Online or through their app select your restaurant, add your items to cart and pay. Your food arrives straight to your doorstep. In many areas, Door Dash is waiving the delivery fee to local restaurants to help ease the burden through this crisis. For similar food delivery apps, try UberEats or GrubHub. I know many of us are wanting to support local restaurants that have had a drastic reduction in business over the last month and these apps are a great way to do that, especially for times when you do not want to cook at home.
  • Kroger Click List – With Click List, your order online and can pick up curbside for free or get groceries delivered for $9.95. As with other stores, Kroger is noting that delivery times are longer right now and recommends pickup instead. With the pickup, you drive up and a Kroger associate brings out your purchases and loads them into your car. For Kroger’s COVID-19 info, click here.
  • Lowe’s – Lightbulbs, air filters, and those special tools you need to complete a home project while you’re homebound – you can find these things and more at Lowe’s. Lowe’s instituted new curbside pick-up for orders placed online – just look for the designated parking spaces near the entrance.
  • Target – Target offers same-day delivery, curbside pickup or standard shipping. As with many stores, some items may be delayed or unavailable, but their web browser has a user-friendly “shop similar items” option to help you find something suitable fast.

  • Tom Thumb – This grocery store offers both delivery and pickup times after ordering online. COVID-19 security measures with online orders.
  • Walmart – In many places, Walmart’s next-day delivery is currently unavailable, but their free curbside online grocery pick up is still up and running. Place your order ($30 minimum), and click check out. Drive to the orange pick-up zones at your designated Walmart, and they load it for you. For Walmart’s corporate response to COVID-19, read here.
