Stress-Free Guide to Grocery Shopping From Home
Updated: Apr 10
Lately, I've found a reoccurring topic in my daily conversations, and it's not Tiger King, but grocery shopping. If you're like me, you're probably use to going out for groceries once or even twice, a week at your local Stop & Shop or Shaw's. With the current situation and #StayAtHome order in place, many of our regular shopping options are not longer available or the safest choice.
Now even Peapod is off the table, unless you want to wake up at 2 am to secure a delivery for 3 weeks out. While it's been a struggle, I've adjusted my grocery shopping routine and found some great alternatives that have made it easy & safe with home delivery or curbside pick-up. The best part is, most of these are local shops and there has never been a better time to support our small businesses on the Cape. So far we've ordered from the Dennis Public Market and Guaranteed Fresh and will likely remain regular customers even after all this is over.
I've come across a few options so I figured I'd share my list of stores offering delivery or curbside pick-up here for anyone interested. At the very least, this is for my parents to see so they no longer have an excuse to leave the house.
If you have other recommendations, please share and I would be happy to add them to the list!
Stay safe and healthy!
Local Markets/Grocery Stores
The Dennis Public Market is open for curbside pick-up and home delivery (limited locations). Fill out the order form on their website and submit it via email. You will receive a call when your order is ready and they will bring it right out to your car. They have a wide selection meats, cold cuts, produce, snacks, house essentials, and beer & wine.
Guaranteed Fresh is an excellent option for fresh produce and is offering curbside pick-up and home delivery. They have an Order Guide on their website to easily view the items they carry. We called in our order and they dropped it off the order the next day and left it on our porch for no-contact service.
Rory's is offering curbside pick-up and home delivery within 10 miles of either of their locations (Mashpee & Dennisport). Rory's has a wide selection of groceries, produce, vitamins + medicine, beer & wine, and more. You can even do your shopping and place an order online.
Beer, Wine, & Spirits
Cotuit Liquors is offering home deliveries on purchases over $50. Place your order over the phone or online.
Luke's is offering curbside pick-ups and deliveries. Contact your preferred location for pick-up or visit their website to place an order for delivery.
Did you know Aubuchon Hardware sells pet supplies and food? They offer online ordering for store pick-up, with the option to add curbside pick-up. This is also a great option for any hardware, tools, paint, etc that you need for your home improvement projects!
Hyannis Country Garden is offering curbside pickup and home delivery. Be sure to check their website for details and their delivery schedule. Add some plants or flowers to your order and get your gardens ready while you're at home!
As much as possible, I have been trying to shop local and support our small businesses. There are some items I have not be able to find (toilet paper) or that are just more affordable to buy in bulk (coffee).
Boxed is like an online version of BJ's or Costo, but so much better. Everything you need is delivered right to your doorstep in bulk, without a membership.
Pro Tips: Try out their private brand, Prince and Spring, for high quality essentials at a low price.
