I have been happy with a ShopRite in the area. I like their general range of goods carried and prices for said goods. I noticed they have a home delivery program, and since ShopRite is still new to the Capitol Region area, they are offering home delivery for free with a purchase over $50. Normally the delivery fee is a flax $6.95, which I find rather reasonable.
I was tickled with curiosity and a lack of motivation to drive out to their Niskayuna store. How well does the home delivery program at ShopRite work? Pretty well, actually. Not perfect, but quite well overall.
What did I buy? Some household items, which arrived just fine. The produce delivered quite well – I ordered some grapes which came unbruised; some squash which were all uniformly sized and unblemished; and two bunches of asparagus.
Oh, and about 2.25 lbs of cilantro. That is a LOT of cilantro. Online I ordered by the ounce. On their side it must have come up as by the bunch. I ordered 6 oz, they subbed 6-0.37 lb bunches of cilantro. I am guessing the delivery fee is being waived as a way to test out our area and any glitches in the system like this one. I don’t think they charged me for this, and I’m guessing it’s because of the pricing/ordering issue.
You can order off of the flyer from the Specials tab, or put in what you want to order and then select it that way. Pretty neat way to order.
