As with everyone else, I am excited about the new Safeway. But, also as with everyone else, I need to eat between now and June or July or August. Now, I’ve found my own ways to scrounge up food, so I don’t want to repeat the oft-asked refrain of where to get groceries around here.
But I do want to ask: does anyone have experience with Peapod or Safeway’s delivery services? I used Peapod when I was back in Chicago and loved it. But I have heard that their quality depends a great deal on which local grocers they work with, and how they get the groceries. In Chicago, or instance, they worked with Dominicks, and got their food direct from the local distribution depots–before it was delivered to the supermarkets–which meant that the produce was usually better than you could get at the actual Dominicks supermarkets!
Are things so good around here? Are the prices online comparable to the in-store prices? Are the deliveries reliable?
