General Tips and Things to Keep in Mind:
When using pick-up or delivery, items may be a bit more expensive than their price in store (usually between $.20- $1).
Usually, you will have to choose the next day for delivery or pick-up.
Some stores have minimum purchase amounts to use the pick-up or delivery service.
Most places allow you to leave notes for your shopper like “green bananas only” or other preferences.
Substitutions may be applied to your order unless you say otherwise and you will not be charged for out of stock items.
Your credit card will not be charged until the shopper has finalized the order.
Tips are not required, but are appreciated especially for delivery.
