As Canadians across the country practise social distancing or self-isolation to combat the spread of the novel coronavirus, more and more are relying on grocery delivery services.
Major chains like Real Canadian Superstore and Walmart offer delivery services in many parts of Canada, while local, independent stores in cities like Toronto and Vancouver have drop-off services for shoppers, too.
Due to high demand, however, some customers can expect to experience longer than usual wait times; in some cases, days. Many stores have also seen a significant increase in store traffic as people have been “panic shopping” — something experts urge against.
If you are in need of groceries and want to have them delivered, here are some options across Canada.
Save-On-Foods has pickup options and delivers to shoppers in different parts of Alberta, including Edmonton, Airdrie West and Red Deer.
SPUD.ca delivers local and organic groceries in Edmonton and Calgary.
In Calgary, Cultivatr delivers farm-fresh groceries from local producers, including meat, dairy and produce. Orders placed online come a few days later.
The Organic Box works in a similar way, and ships locally produced products to customers in the greater Edmonton area, Calgary, Bow Valley and other cities across Alberta.
Family-owned The Grocery Link delivers groceries from stores including Real Canadian Superstore, Walmart, Wholesale Club, Loblaws City Market and Save on Foods to residents in the Calgary area.

Stong’s Market offers daily grocery delivery to Vancouver and North Vancouver and weekly delivery to Bowen Island. The store notes, however, that it is experiencing higher-than-usual demand, meaning delivery times may vary.
Thrifty Foods offers in-store shopping deliveries in select locations, as well as online shopping store pickups. Online shopping delivery is available in some areas, but check online or call for availability.
