When life gets turned upside down, it’s hard to maintain a sense of normalcy. You’re getting used to working from home and adjusting your social schedule, all while keeping up with news reports. It’s comforting to find new ways to enjoy what you used to do, like eating your favorite food.
Many restaurants and stores are remaining open for delivery. Right now, the new normal is ordering take-out instead of heading out to town for a nice meal. You can also request for a store to deliver groceries if you’re self isolating or simply trying to limit the number of times you leave your home.
Before you research which restaurants and grocery stores offer delivery in your area, read these tips and tricks for contactless shipments…
Request During Ordering
The idea of contactless deliveries is nothing new, but now it has become the new norm. Businesses know it’s an easy way to stay open and keep their customers engaged without putting anyone in danger. Many large brands have made contactless delivery part of their standard service, but smaller businesses may not have the resources to do the same.
When you call your local grocery store or diner, ask if they have contactless delivery. It may not be listed on their website or app because they don’t have the time or staff to update everything. They’ll clarify if they offer it. If not, you can shop elsewhere.
