Grocery delivery for small amounts?

Hi,
Anybody knows of a grocery delivery other than Coop@Home and LeShop? Offering free delivery is a bonus!

The big two even don't bother delivering for smaller amounts!

You are in Switzerland. Free delivery?

You may want to check if you can get farmer´s boxes here. They deliver vegetables and meat weekly.

Re: Grocery delivery for small amounts?

small deliveries are made by mail and since food is heavy and voluminous it's crazy expensive.
go see for yourself on ebay.

microspot.ch proves it is possible and feasible!

You are aware that microspot sells ELECTRONICS and not FOOD... and that there is a huge market of other retailers who also sell electronics (m-electronics, Mediamarkt, brack, steg, digitec etc.) and thus there are many retailers whom one can has to compete against price wise if one wants to stand a chance in the Swiss ELECTRONICS market -
whereas there are only Coop and Migros who offer online FOOD deliveries at a reasonable price - from what I see Aldi offers delivery for a whopping CHF 50

So I wouldn't complain too much and take the swiss grocery market (and its delivery options) as it is - or shop outside of the country.

At the risk of being seen to get at all involved in this discussion, I only want to point out that Microspot.ch don't (yet) deal in grocery items. I imagine that this was simply intended as an example of low cost home delivery.

OK, thanks. Never have used Microspot so had no idea what they sell. Still advising the farmers boxes though

Re: Grocery delivery for small amounts?

Check out farmy.ch. their products are organic.

I have not used them and don't know if this works for you. There may be other similar services.

If you buy over 200 chf delivery is free; otherwise is 9 chf. (it used to be 15 chf!)



Free delivery in August anyway...;-)

Depending on where you live, the minimum amount one needs to spend on food to get a free delivery decreases to CHF 50. For Lausanne it seems delivery can increase up to CHF 14.90 if one buys items for an amount between CHF 50 and CHF 121. So it seems like one cannot order from Lausanne if the order amounts to less than CHF 50...
See their T&C for further info.

The minimum order amount is 50chf irrespective of where you live according to the French version of the T&C.

So I guess we need to find out if the OP is wanting to order small amounts of food or spend small amounts of money

Unless you have a valid reason for not visiting a shop on your way home from work, I feel you were born in the wrong place at the wrong time.

You are free to consider it valid or not, but I am a researcher and usually arrive home ~8PM. It IS a norm in the university to leave at that time!
