The vast majority of people in Calgary are pressed for time. We work longer and harder than ever before and finding the time to do tedious tasks such as shopping for groceries becomes a chore. In our family, a chore is exactly what it is - or was until we began a new grocery delivery service.
It was about a year and a half ago we decided to try SPUD
- they were fairly new to Calgary and offered all kinds of organically grown, local (when available) produce, dairy, grains etc. We were able to purchase pretty much everything we needed and the cost was comparable to the local supermarket. Perhaps slightly more expensive - but we did not have to go spend time in a store, fight the line ups and haul all the groceries back home!
There are a couple very enjoyable features when using their service - we manage our grocery list online throughout the week, then on Thursdays we get a bin dropped off at the front door. This saves our family time and has also made us very aware of how much utilizing this service helps our environment. On our bill, we can see the distance traveled for items - the carrots for example come from Alberta, not somewhere in California - so we are supporting our local economy as well as the fuel impact of shipping carrots across the country!
Of course we still need to hit the ‘big’ store - but that has been cut down from weekly to monthly.
If you are looking to save your family some time, as well as the added bonus of helping our local economy and world environment - check SPUD
out! Definitely recommended!
