You don’t even have to leave the house to get your groceries!
Are you tired of going out, searching through store shelves and waiting in checkout lines? Well, shopping for everyday essentials just got so much easier. Costco two-day delivery for groceries is now officially available across Canada and you can only get so much online.
In an April 23 press release, the company stated that effective at business closing time, its stores would only be offering delivery or curbside pickup of online orders.
The announcement follows a new set of rules from the Government about how essential services can serve the public.
The Costco Canada release also states that all stores will remain closed to the public for at least 14 days as per the new order.
On April 23, Costco Canada posted on Facebook that its two-day delivery finally launched all over the country.
That means the wholesaler’s members in nine provinces can get their groceries delivered right to their door from Costco in just two days if they’re within the qualified delivery areas.
Non-perishable food, household supplies and other specifically marked items are eligible for two-day delivery.
So you can get pretty much anything like granola bars, laundry detergent, toothpaste, maple syrup, napkins and more.
As an added bonus, if you spend more than $75 before tax, there is no delivery surcharge, which saves you even more money.
There is no service on weekends so you have to have your order placed by noon local time from Monday to Friday in order to have your groceries at your door within two business days.
In B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, P.E.I. and Nova Scotia, you can take advantage of the service.
If some of the products you want aren’t included in the two-day service, you can still buy them at the same time you do your delivery order.
The items are listed separately in the checkout section of the website so you can see what’s in each cart.
Also, there is no minimum for orders and they can only be delivered to one address.
There could be delays to delivery, according to Costco.
Events out of the wholesaler’s control like weather, natural disasters, strikes and technical difficulties could impact the delivery time frame.
