Online grocery delivery

I just used the online grocery delivery service from www.leshop.ch and it was great. The site is totally easy to use, with English instructions, and there is a good selection to choose from - including many international items.

It's connected with Migros so you can collect "M-Cumulus" points too. The delivery fee can be as low as under 8 CHF. Plus you don't even have to be home when they deliver!

If you try it out, you can enter my email as a referral and then you'll get 10 CHF discount on EACH of your first 5 orders (so you save 50 CHF total). It's: ecombg at gmail.com (using the @ of course)

Enjoy!

I get 20 CHF off my next order if you list me as a referral.

They can leave it outside or you can arrange for them to leave it with a neighbor. They pack the cold items in a special bag with a cold water bottle so it won't spoil before you get home.

I especially like how you can save shopping "lists" online so you can add things whenever you think of them. And you can re-use the lists each time you order if you end up always buying the same things.

Re: Online grocery delivery

Hi

You have to leave the water bottle and bag out the next time you get a delivery or they charge you for it each time they come (I think its 5chf)

Also - the freezer things come separately

But its a good service - and unlike the Migros you visit - le-shop sells wine and save you having to carry it home

Do they leave it outside then? Do you have to tip the delivery guy?

Re: Online grocery delivery

Personally I like the coop online store better. It does all you mentioned but delivers more quickly... you can order for next day delivery. (Last time I checked in November 07)

I also find it has more products and they bring it all the way to top floors.
Downside: you have to be home for the delivery...

Cheers,
Cristina

Le Shop also provide next day delivery, although you have to order by 3.30pm on a Friday to get Saturday am delivery. Also, they leave it on the doorstep.

Yes but if you are not home to let them in they leave it outside downstairs, right?
