Update on our Refill Department

Effective immediately, our bulk department is no longer self-service and we will no longer accept re-usable containers for bulk purchases. However, we would have happy to serve you with your bulk purchases. Please ask a staff member for assistance.

Delivery and curbside services

Our local delivery and curbside pickup options have proved to be very popular and we’re trying to make it easier for you and for us! (Please see our latest COVID-19 Update here.)

You can now order online using a simple form that is organized by the major departments (e.g.  Fruit, Vegetables, Freezer, Dairy, Body Care etc.).

Once your order is ready, we will contact you to clarify any questions and to process your payment over the phone with either VISA or MasterCard. We can typically complete your order within 24 hours.

Delivery slots are available Monday – Friday from 2 – 4pm and curbside pickup is available daily.  We will confirm what’s possible when we confirm your order with you.

As we are experiencing a higher-than-normal amount of orders, we ask that you send in your orders by 10am if you’d like to have them filled that day.
