Calgary has upped its food delivery game in the last few years, making cooking for the week just a little bit easier. In addition to restaurant delivery services such as Uber Eats, DoorDash and Skip the Dishes, here are a few supermarket grocery delivery services that deliver big-name, local and even organic produce or vegan products right to your door.
This local grocery delivery service lets you place an order at one of eight grocery stores (including Superstore, Save-On-Foods and M&M Food Market), then delivers it within a two hour span on weekdays. The base rate for regular delivery service is $19.99, plus there are discounted programs for seniors and those with limited access.
With Inabuggy, you can order from multiple big-name stores, which currently includes Walmart, Costco, PetSmart, Rexall Pharma Plus, Safeway and M&M Food Market. The delivery fee is $19.98 and there’s an additional fee of $9.99 per store if there are multiple stops. The biggest bonus is you can order in as little as an hour in advance (or up to three days).
Instacart offers delivery from a wide range of stores, including BulkBarn, Staples, Walmart, Real Canadian Superstore and more. Plan ahead by placing an order in advance (maximum six days) or get a last-minute delivery within two hours. The service uses your delivery time and order size to determine the delivery fee.
Order from Save-On-Foods at least a day in advance or up to 30 days before delivery. Delivery fees are based on your chosen time slot but range between $7 to $10. Through your account, you can create and save shopping lists and add notes to specific items like if you want a ripe avocado or a green banana.
Spud members get boxes of local, organic produce once a week on a designated delivery day based on neighbourhood. If you fulfill the minimum order, your groceries will be delivered for free. Choose what goes in the box or go with the Weekly Staples Box, which features $70 worth of products for just $40 with vegan and gluten-free options.
Sunterra delivers groceries for $8 with a minimum order of $50. In addition to everyday groceries, you can also have Sunterra’s daily features delivered as well as its Friday Night Feast, a three-course meal for just $16.99. Voila, dinner is served.
T & T Supermarket, which has two locations in Calgary, is the latest major grocery store chain to offer home delivery. Shoppers can place orders for Asian snacks, groceries, household items and beauty/health products. Orders will arrive within three to seven days through Canada Post.
