Store NameCurbsideDeliveryPickup In StoreExperience
AlbertsonsYesRecent Delivery Experience (4/18/20) We use instacart for Albertsons. A little more expensive than usual because substitutes are always for more expensive product. Several substitutes per order have been the norm $25 on the average. On the flip side we've always gotten quick delivery and I'd rather pay more than go into the store.
Dry Dock FishYesRecent Curbside Experience (4/14/20) Their fish is not cheap but the quality cannot be beat anywhere. Fish arrives on ice and service was excellent. They even now have some meat available.
VonsYesYesNoRecent Curbside Experience (4/12/20) : Pickup is offered 4 to 6 days out. No not go during your pickup window till you have received a text or email confirming that your order is ready for pickup.
Recent Delivery Experience (4/12/20) : Checked on 4/12/20 and the next available delivery date was 4/18/20. Note that the delivery dates are different based on whether you pick,"You will be there to receive your order" or "Leave at doorstep". The first option resulted in an earlier delivery date of 4/16/20.
WalmartYesRecent Delivery Experience (4/12/20) : We ordered online and got delivery 4 days later. All went well , one substitution – navels for clemintines -fine. Front door delivery- very nice guy only needed signing on a tablet.
SproutsYesYesNo Sprouts grocery delivery is powered by Instacart. We had success once on getting Sprouts to deliver - but haven't had any luck getting a time since. You might have luck if you try very early in the morning.
Recent Curbside Experience (4/12/20) : I tried ordering around noon and the message was that delivery is no longer available. Please try earlier in the day. They do not seem to have an option similar to Vons where you can book a few days ahead.
