Curbside Pickup is My Hero



We’ve ALL been there.  You are at the grocery store and the shopping cart is loaded down.  It has become so very heavy that you can barely turn it down each aisle.  The kids are whining and you know that your time has become limited.  Suddenly child #1 has a restroom emergency while child #2 is screaming because child #3 decided it would be a good idea to purposely trip them.  All whilst the ice cream is wedged under a mound of other necessities melting.

What if I told you that there’s a better way that is super convenient and absolutely life changing?  It is possible to grocery shop from your mobile device which would allow you to avoid the crowds and any kiddo chaos you might otherwise encounter!  You can even count on a reserved parking spot and you do not have to step out of your vehicle!  Sound too good to be true?  It’s not!

There are convenient curbside grocery services offered at many Waco area grocery stores!  If you haven’t already tried it, what are you waiting for?!  Taking advantage of Curbside Grocery saves time, money and sanity! It eliminates impulse purchases and allows you to virtually browse available items!  Simply create an account, fill your online shopping cart, select your desired pick up time and drive to the store. 

H-E-B currently offers curbside grocery at their Woodway, Wooded Acres, Valley Mills Drive and Highway 35/84 locations.  While there is no minimum dollar amount required there is a $4.95 personal shopper fee included on each order.  There is also a slight price increase on most items and coupons may not be applied.   Wal Mart also offers curbside grocery at their Franklin, Hewitt and Bellmead locations.  There is a $30 order minimum and coupons may not be applied.  Theirs is absolutely FREE and there is no price increase on items.  Both companies pride themselves on friendly customer service and quality items every time.  Team members are trained on choosing the most fresh produce and strive to be ready when customers arrive.  Substitutions are honored if allowed by the customer.  Often times the substitution is actually a higher priced item but the store only charges the value of the originally ordered item.  Shoppers are encouraged to order at least four hours in advance and orders are kept refrigerated until they are picked up.  Tips are not accepted.  

What an amazingly convenient alternative to grocery shopping!  My family benefits from this weekly and I encourage you to give it a try!  I bet you’ll thank me later 😉  As a New Year incentive, Wal Mart is offering $10 off your first online order of $50+ which is good through January 31, 2018.  Use the code WOWFRESH to take advantage of these savings.  Happy shopping!!
