FOWC with Fandango: Indebted

I am indebted to the large supermarket in a nearby village that delivers my shopping once a week. It started a couple of years ago and they invited me to join. It was really an invitation. It was a new system and they probably found I was a good customer. I joined and have never regretted it since. The system was new, but over the year it was being developed and for my needs it could not be better. I know the supermarket and their products very well. I have a computer page in Internet where I can place my online orders. I organised it that I get a delivery on Friday from 10-11 in the morning and it works perfectly. The goods arrive by electric cars and brought to my door. They are packed as can been seen in the photo, and the empty packing is collected on the next delivery. For me it is a great support as I have MS and can only go shopping with my scooter. At the moment the snowy days are upon us and I cannot leave the home very well, so this is ideal. They are not able to deliver frozen goods, but as I always get fresh produce I have a large deep freezer chest and a vacuuming machine and freeze products such as meat myself. Otherwise now and again, weather permitting, I pop along the road to the local supermarket and buy a few items myself that they cannot deliver..

Online purchasing has become part of my life, and payment is also online, easy to handle, on the computer.

  1. Grocery shopping on-line has been a godsend for me too! Because I still drive, I order my groceries on line, and pick it up a couple of hours later. That serves several purposes: I don’t have to walk through the store, exposing myself to whatever viruses are working at the time, and it gets me out of the house. I may iss something every once in a while, but I also have a smaller store that I use for “pick-up” items.

  2. Pat I think a lot of lives have been saved across the globe with grocery delivery service. I got started on it before Covid, and after Covid started they just left the groceries on the steps so no contact possible. Our local store now has a service where you can order online and they will shop it and bring it out to the car for no extra charge.

  3. I’ve been ordering online for 7-8 years now. It started when David got sick and could no longer drive. Our two major supermarkets both deliver, including the frozen goods.
    Before Covid they used to bring everything inside and put it on the kitchen table which was great because I did not get tons of bags. Now they will only bring it to the door. Until recently they would take the plastic bags back to recycle but recently informed customers that while they can still collect the bags they won’t be recycled. I’m saving mine to give to charity shops instead.
    I much prefer this method of shopping because I don’t have to waste time in the supermarket trying to find things or get past people having conversations in the middle of the aisle and more importantly, I know exactly how much I have spent before I get to the checkout.
    I do pick up a few items from the supermarket in Wynyard and so does Naomi if we run out of fresh produce but I would not go back to doing a full shop there.
