Big Y Supermarkets have a program called “Instacart” where participants can order groceries online and have them delivered directly to the home. Participants sign up at www.instacart.com/big-y Choose items from the weekly Big Y Sales Flyer and submit your order. An instacart shopper assembles the order and delivers it. There are delivery charges. Additionally the weekly in store deals, coupons, etc won’t be honored-it’s all done without using a Big Y card.
The number to our local North Adams Big Y is 413.663.6549, call them with specific questions.
Wild Oats Community Markets have initiated a new service called “Curbside PickUp”.
This is also an online based order program, firstname.lastname@example.org is the address.
They’re asking you to include your phone number in your message with your list of items. They’ll need that to process your order and communicate with you at pick up time. Credit Card orders must be processed by telephone and they’ll ask you for billing information when they call to let you know that your order is ready. Essentially, order online, they will assemble the order and call you when ready, you go and pick it up, they’ll bring it to your car. This saves you from having to go into the market yourself. There is a $5 fee to make this happen. Wild Oats main store number is; 413.458.8060. Call them for information.
Two local pharmacies are able to deliver medications to individual homes. Walgreens here in Williamstown uses FedEx to deliver, usually within 24 hours of receiving a prescription and they say that they send orders out twice daily. The number there is 413.458.2138
The Berkshire Community Pharmacy housed in the lobby of the former hospital also delivers medications. You can reach them at 413.664.5333
