Thumbs up for Peapod

It’s 8:15 a.m., and I just had groceries delivered for the very first time.

Where have I been? Hiding under a rock? Why didn’t I do this before????

Instead of schlepping nearly a half mile to the store and then carrying (or carting) home 6-8 bags looped around my wrists and having to stop at park benches to rest on the way home, I am sitting in my warm house during a blizzard — and a man carried all those heavy things (including Diet Pepsi and a 24-pack of water) up the stairs to my kitchen.

Hooray for Peapod!

Granted, I did spend a half hour selecting my items online on Sunday evening. But overall the time and energy saved is amazing.

And I do have to say, I was impressed with the delivery guy. He followed all the “customer service” rules. He asked if I had any questions, because he saw that I was a first-time customer. He pointed out that there was a coupon in the bag for $5 off my next order. And he did it with a smile. In the middle of a blizzard.

    So I am now addicted to your blog as well!! All I can say is when can they bring this service to Hutchinson!! Two hours at the grocery store in freezing rain this weekend was not my idea of fun!! I think I will move where I can get grocery service like that!!! Anyways, let me know when you will be in town we need to get together or something!!

    I once had a guy in an unmarked truck (supposedly selling meat) want to deliver to my door. I declined due to the whole ambiguity of the thing! Hmmm, 3 cheers for Peapod!
