The past few months have definitely changed the face of shopping. Yes, online shopping has been popular for a while, but COVID-19 has made delivery services, curbside pickup and the like into a lifeline. Grocery shopping is a necessary part of daily life, but for busy nurses and business professionals, surfing the online aisles of the store is MUCH easier. Shreveport-Bossier Corporate Housing knows that our tenants have busy schedules. Our Bossier houses for rent provide guests the convenience of cooking at home and online delivery services like the ones we highlight in this post make it even easier.
Local Delivery and Curbside Services for Groceries in Bossier
One of the difficulties of moving often is the need to reorient yourself whenever you get to a new city. Debi understands this and wants your home-away-from-home to be as comfortable as possible. Your fully furnished corporate housing solution features a living area with leather recliners, bedroom(s) for relaxing, washer and dryer units and a kitchen with the essential equipment you need to make everything from a cup of coffee, to breakfast in bed or a batch of homemade cookies. But where to get all of the food supplies? No worries! Take a look at the list of possible options below:
- Kroger allows you to create an online Shopping List and has several options for getting your items, including free pickup (they bring items to your car), delivery, shipping and, of course, traditional in-store shopping.
- Like Kroger, Walmart offers grocery pickup and delivery options. They have a Walmart Grocery App if you prefer shopping through an app or via their website at https://grocery.walmart.com.
- Does the idea of a personal shopper appeal to you? Try Shipt, a service that sends people to a variety of stores to do your shopping for you and bring it to your home. If you need items from CVS, Kroger, Target, Office Depot or Petco, consider Shipt.
- Instacart is another online service that pulls items from several different stores for your shopping needs. For tenants staying in Bossier houses for rent, the options through Instacart include Sam’s Club, Kroger, CVS, Petco, Albertsons, Brookshire’s, Super 1 Foods and Target.
- Love them or not, Amazon also has a substantial offering in the grocery market. The Amazon Pantry service allows you to buy household necessities online and, if you’re already an Amazon Prime member, orders over $35 will ship for free.
- Last but not least, if you’re interested in supporting local businesses and okay with a non-traditional grocery experience, check out this article from news station KTBS. The article mentions two different restaurants in the area that are now offering groceries for sale. If you have a favorite local restaurant, try calling them up and see if they sell groceries.
