  • What do I do if my delivery is running early and I am not available to receive it?

    We do our best to avoid your delivery arriving early because we know that you usually want your order to arrive in the time frame you selected. If your delivery arrives early for some reason your delivery driver will call and/or text you to let you know. You can have us leave the order at your door or ask the driver to deliver at a better time if you don’t want the order early.

    Also, you can leave a note on your order if it’s okay for us to leave the groceries at your door or with a doorman. Here’s how to put a note on your order:
