Grocery Delivery in Rural New Brunswick

by Kim
(New Brunswick, Canada)

Sadly my experience NON - Exists....well not that I have found yet for rural part of New Brunswick Canada.

Being disabled without a drivers license it is something I have been asking about for years now to no avail.

Although should I have missed a grocery store that allows on line ordering and delivery I would love to know about it as would many in rural New Brunswick.

Not to mention medical appts, dental appts, prescriptions etc all are a desperate hardship when disabled and/or without a license in rural New Brunswick, Canada.

Thanks for this opportunity,
Hungry for so many of New Brunswickers,

Brainstorming for Creative Solutions
by: Ruth

I do identify a bit, Kim, as my brother Tom, is in a wheelchair. Now he is able to call the Access van (for the handicapped) which can take him to a grocery store where he can shop, and then get a ride home again. (Do you have such a service in your area?)

Otherwise, he orders a lot of pizza to be delivered.

But that gives me another idea. We need to get creative at solving this problem. Most restaurants deliver. If you could find one you like, and order a good sized-meal so that you can put away the left-overs for another meal or two, would that help?

Ultimately though, I am sure you'd rather choose groceries online and have them delivered so you can prepare meals the way you like best. I'm wondering if you could call up the local grocery stores, ask to speak to the manager, and politely inquire whether they have a delivery service, or would consider it. You might just start something!

Or, the manager may have an employee who is willing to deliver your groceries after they get off their shift.

Another suggestion I've made on this site, is that you look around among your friends and neighbours for someone you think you could trust, and ask them to go pick up the groceries for you. You might mentor and groom that person to the point where they could make a small side business for themselves, in delivering groceries (and other purchases) for a list of regular clients.

In a quick Google search I found some job offers for grocery delivery people in New Brunswick - a whiff of hope, right? They may have a delivery service, but the grocery chains don't advertise it until they have good delivery employees.
