Though we are still in the midst of autumn splendour, each falling leaf brings us closer to the season that most challenges seniors’ sense of autonomy.
Staying active is important, but on days of relentless rain or snowstorms, it may be safer and more practical to have groceries delivered than to venture outside in search of sustenance.
While most large grocery stores will deliver an order a client picks out at the store, IGA has an online shopping service at iga.net.
The delivery is from the store you select and there are several payment options, including cash or credit card.
For those who prefer ordering the old-fashioned way, below you will find a list of grocery stores that will take your telephone orders and deliver the same or the next day.
They offer this service usually in the mornings on different days during the week, depending on the store.
Some have a delivery fee and/or a minimum that you must order, ranging from $25 to $45.
