Grocery Shopping in Hot Weather

At Grocery Girls, we’ve had a flurry of new customers who don’t want to go grocery shopping in hot weather. And Kansas City is VERY hot right now.

Just to clarify, we shop 7 days a week, no matter what the weather is doing. All of the Grocery Girls run their own schedules but we are always available to work in a new customer. After all, we love grocery shopping!

One of my best customers is a monthly shop for me. Typically I’ll shop at Costco, Trader Joe’s, Hen House, and Whole Foods for her. Last week she spent over $600! Granted, half of that was at Costco and she stocks up big time when she places an order.

She came on board with Grocery Girls long after the stay-at-home order was over. When I asked her how she found us she said it was online. Like many others, she tried Instacart, pick-up at the store but she always had issues with her orders. She would spend way too much time making sure she received what she ordered and then getting it corrected when it wasn’t right.

When she called to ask about Grocery Girls, I explained to her how we’re different. Besides receiving your receipts, another big thing is that only one person touches your order. The grocery stores might have several people shop for you, another employee rings it up, and then sackers pack it for pick up. By the time your order goes through all those people, any number of things can go wrong. Grocery Girls have all worked in the grocery stores and you would be surprised what goes on!

Things just don’t go wrong with Grocery Girls even when we’re grocery shopping in hot weather. Our clients will leave cold water and snacks at the door for us.

Whatever you order, you will receive or you will know we can’t find it before we leave the store. That’s when we can make a decision to make another stop on the way to deliver your groceries.

Our Pricing

You’ll find our prices are still less than Instacart and grocery store pickups. Why? The stores have to pay people to shop your order, ring it up and then bag it. They have to make money doing that. The same goes for Instacart.

Keeping Your Groceries Cold

All Grocery Girls are equipped with coolers for grocery shopping in hot weather. And we are professional grocery shoppers who know the difference between a zucchini and cucumber.

Order Here

If you don’t want to go grocery shopping in hot weather or whatever your reason, we hope you will check us out if you haven’t used us before. You can place your order here.

No Contact Grocery Delivery

If you have any concerns about receiving a no contact grocery delivery, Grocery Girls has you covered.

You can text us where you would like to receive your drop off order. You can pay us through Venmo or leave us instructions where you will leave our check.

We will then text you when we arrive and make sure we are at the right house. There is nothing worse than seeing posts on Nextdoor that someone received groceries that they didn’t order.

Before we leave, we will send you a photo of the groceries.

Thanks for using Grocery Girls!

The Word on the Street

This week I had a client ask if I had heard the latest about grocery delivery services. She said she heard that the grocery delivery service drivers were going through people’s orders before delivering them and taking out what they wanted.

Then they delivered the order. The customer was missing some items, called the store to complain and honestly who is to blame? Did in fact, the driver take the food or did the store get the order wrong in the first place?

Another rumor on the streets is Instacart shoppers are getting ripped off by customers who offer a tip when they place their order and then rescind it after the order is delivered.

I’m on the Instacart feed so I can keep track of what’s going on in that world and I’m appalled at what shoppers have to do to make $10. Instacart will oftentimes bundle two different orders for one store so the shopper can make more money.

For example, right now there is an offer for 2 full service orders at one particular store. There are 26 items to shop for, with delivery to 2 different houses and the pay including tip is $23.02. My question is, how long will it take that shopper to drive to the store, shop 2 orders, and communicate with the customer on every item that is not available late on a Saturday afternoon when the store is probably picked over? Then stand in line to check out, load the car, drive to two different locations and use their gas. For $23.02?

We shop AND deliver and guarantee your satisfaction!

At Grocery Girls, we are professional grocery shoppers. As one client said, “you don’t get an Uber driver.” (thanks Joe)! You get your same personal shopper every week that wants more than anything to make sure your order is complete and to your satisfaction. If we get anything wrong, we will gladly pick up the wrong item and replace it at no cost to you. You don’t get that with any of the other grocery services.

We want you to get the groceries you want and we love seeing our clients excited to get just what they ordered. Especially during the current stay at home order, people want to eat and they want what they ordered – more now than ever. If they are in the mood to bake brownies, they want brownies – and they want them now.

People love their groceries and we love grocery shopping!

You can reach us direct at (913) 515-3250 or send your list to We will let you know we’ve received your order.

The Instacart Walkout

Be prepared for Instacart’s 175,000 grocery delivery people to walk out on Monday, March 30, 2020

If you think grocery delivery is slow to get now, wait until Monday. Rumor has it, Instacart’s gig workers are planning a massive nationwide strike on Monday March 30, 2020.

Amid the Corona Virus Pandemic, Instacart has refused to offer its 175,000 shoppers basic necessities like hand sanitizer, masks or paid leave for those with pre-existing health conditions.

They also want more money. The workers say that come Monday, they will refuse to accept orders until Instacart steps up to the plate and pays them an additional $5 per order, free safety gear and expands its sick leave to include workers who have been advised by their doctors not to work at this time.

Instacart already inflates their prices about 25%. If they have to pay their workers more money, guess who will be paying for that increase? Yep. The consumers.

The public is already fed up with receiving half the order they placed. And trouble is, they don’t know what they aren’t getting until their shopper gets to the store and starts offering you replacement items…or nothing at all.

They say the strike will last until Instacart agrees to these terms.

Instacart also announced that they will hire an additional 300,000 workers in the next three months as the demand for grocery deliveries soar.

I would hope that a company worth $2 billion could help their underpaid people out. Just saying!
