I originally wrote about “Shoprite from Home” a few years ago and decided to re-visit this popular & constantly growing service with our Orange & Woodbridge readers. The success of this service is amazing thanks to ShopRite owner Harry Garafalo and his dedicated & loyal staff. ShopRite from Home is not only for the elderly or handicapped but also busy families or just anyone in general that doesn’t have the time to spend in a grocery store.
ShopRite from Home offers the service in two ways. Once you place the order online you can select option 1 to pick-up at the store. The staff will bring the order right to your vehicle. Option 2 is to have it delivered to your home. The driver brings it right into your kitchen. The fee for either option is $10.00 (delivery is free on every 5th order). Milford ShopRite delivers to Orange and Hamden Shoprite delivers to Woodbridge. You can select a convenient time for the delivery within a 3 hour time frame (8a-11a, 10a-1p, etc.) The website shows the days and times available.
The personal shopper assigned to your order carefully selects all items (all perishable items such as meat and produce must be inspected by a manager before leaving the store). If the store is out of an item ordered, the personal shopper calls you to see if you would like a substitution If you have any last minute instructions or additions to your order, just call the store and speak with your shopper. The quality of everything I have ever ordered has always been outstanding. The staff is very well trained paying great attention to detail for each order.
ShopRite from Home offers over 30,000 unique items online, compared to 9,000-10,000 offered by its competitors. If you have a catering order-party platters can also be delivered to your home or office. At ShopRite from Home, you pay the same everyday low prices as you would in the store. You can take advantage of the same sale items and specials featured in its weekly circular (the entire circular can be viewed online). The competition charges higher prices online for a selection of their items. ShopRite from Home customers enjoy all the benefits of its Price Plus Club Card, including discounts and savings on featured items, points towards free turkeys & hams, Baby and Pet Bucks, etc.
ShopRite from Home welcomes and applies your ShopRite and manufacturer coupons savings to your order. When your order is delivered just give the staff your coupons and they will be deducted from your next order. There is no minimum order for shopping online. If you spend $20.00 or $200.00, you still receive the same courteous, efficient service along with top notch quality. You may pay for your ShopRite from Home pick-up order just as you would any shopping trip to the store with cash, check, credit card, debit card or gift card. For delivery, you can pay by check (with prior approval), credit, debit or gift card.
Shoprite of Milford and Hamden owners Harry Garafalo and his lovely wife Ann are truly special people and give so much back to the local community. Harry has received numerous awards for all his charitable work and community service.
