    Locally we do not have a lot of options that offer Click and Collect groceries but I did notice a discussion on Facebook regarding this Click & Collect Groceries. The biggest complaint is most people are saying on a good week (really 2-weeks as the average wait in our area for a time slot is 9 to 14 days) that no one seems to get everything they order. Most say on average that they get about 1/2 of what they order.

    The part that concerns me most is people have said, yes it defeats the purpose but because the only got half of what they ordered they go into the store because they cannot go a week or two with the groceries they got and are able to buy pretty much everything that was marked out of stock on their order.

    Some people say it seems like they skip certain departments, some say they got no meat, other said they got no produce but once they went in they were able to buy everything from their order in the store.

    Hopefully things get more consistent, but for now I think I will stick to my plan of trying to shop once a month at Costco.

    Keep in mind that social media and internet forums quite often make things look worse than they are, mainly because people are generally FAR more likely to report and complain about issues than they are to say that something worked like it should.

    For those that live a bit north of the city and are looking for a vegi place that is doing pick up orders, there is a place on Woodbine just south of Stouffville Side Road. My wife just picked up our first order a couple of days ago and it was done on time and every thing was exactly as ordered and the quality was as if she picked the order herself. We have been going to that location for years and even tho they are on the pricey side the vegies last a lot longer than the ones we normally purchase at grocery stores

    I understand that but I have also seen the same thing happen with my family who have tried click and collect shopping.

    I think it's a good idea to compare different grocery delivery services to determine which one comes at a lower premium, but still maintains good quality service.
