No Deliveries. No Pickups.

So the good news is my grocery stores have my food items in stock. The bad news is there are no delivery or pickup times available. Last week, you had to wait a week for delivery, now there are no deliveries times at all. No pickup times, either. So, even though I’m high risk, and shouldn’t be going out, I’m left with no choice but to do my own shopping. So glad I have a few masks left.

@MarineBob Wow, that's nice.

@JimminyChristmas must be a perk of living in a small town

I feel they should be used for the disabled, and really frail old people who can’t get about themselves very well. I’m over 60, with a couple of underlying conditions, but not frail. If I got to that point, I’d call them. @MarineBob

Wow. Is there no one that would do it for you? Maybe a church is offering or uber or anything? If I was close enough I would send my nephew to help.

Thank you. I’m actually okay for now I was ordering a week in advance because that’s how it was a week ago. Maybe the shoppers are on strike. I have an N95 mask, which actually makes me hyperventilate a bit, if I wear it too long, so I’ll have to plan my shop carefully, and get in and out as quickly as possible. @Fungirlmmm

So what you want to do is wait until midnight and refresh the delivery page and hope you get a slot. I had to do that for my elderly family member and she won't get a delivery until the 17th of April.

I’ll try that. Thank you. @Joeyyy
Do you have a church family? Maybe someone there can do it and bring it to you. Or a neighbor? Friend?

Only my eldest son, but he’s in the high risk category too. If one of us has to die, I’d rather it be me. Hopefully, it won’t be either of us. @Pinkstarburst

That sucks. If I lived nearby, I’d bring you your stuff.

You can't even get on the site for the supermarket I use. Theres a queue to shop online and no delivery or pick up times for a month or more anyway.

I ordered some items from Amzn, but by the time I checked out, some were already out of stock, so I had to go back through check out again, and by that time, more items were gone. After about the 4th time through checkout, I was left with 2 items. I canceled, and wasted a whole lot of time. @KuroNeko I hope you find a place, or have a mask to wear, if you must shop yourself.

@Carissimi I am making a few masks this week as going out to shop seems to be the only option. I hope you manage to get enough supplies in from somewhere.

Call the store and explain your situation. Surely they can make some arrangement for you.

Is there anyone that can go for you? If not be careful.

May God watch over and bless you 🙏

Thank you. You too, @Stereoguy 🙏
