Living downtown just got easier!
Living downtown obviously has some incredible perks, but convenient grocery shopping was not one of them. Before, we thought the only solution to this problem was to have a one-stop grocery store 5 minutes away from our urban living—but what if we could get our groceries delivered to us?! Grocery delivery would make our downtown lifestyle even easier.
Now that dream is a reality! Meijer and Shipt recently launched a collaboration that makes downtown living the absolute best option for grocery shopping with home delivery. While we will always love the well-curated, select-shopping of the Downtown Market (Fish Lads & Aperitivo!), Louise Earl Butcher in Uptown, and the seasonal variety of the Fulton Street Farmers Market in Midtown, sometimes we need to get all our groceries, home goods and beauty products in one trip, which meant a drive… ’til now!
