do you ever wish?

Do you ever wish your grocery store had a drive through. I hate it when all I have to get is milk or butter or something and I have to go to the store with my 19 month old and my 3 year old by my self. I have to bundle them up because it is winter in Maine then I have to get them in and out of the car for 1 thing. It is such a pain. I think it would be great to have a drive through at the grocery store for situations like this.

  • Most grocery stores that deliver have a minimum purchase amount. You have to spend so much before they'll deliver and on top of that they charge a delivery fee. Not worth it when you only need one thing. I think it would be a great idea to have curbside service. You could call ahead and tell them what you need and they bring it out to your car. THAT would be great.

  • it's funny, where I used to live, there was a drive through convenience store :) you could get simple things like milk, eggs, soda, butter, bread etc. it was nice. It didn't last long though... :o(

  • You would love it here. We have a dairy not far from me. You can drive up and get pretty much any dairy product as well as bread. Drive thrus rule when you have kids in the car.

  • There is a drive-through convenience store in the town I went to college in. I loved it, but it was over priced!

  • Oh my goodness, I so wish that!! Especially being from Maine myself I know what you mean!! That would be the BEST thing in the world. Except they would definatley have to have limits though, like you can only have less than 5 items or something...Or call ahead with your list so you can just drive up and pick it up??

  • I usually wait until we need more then a few thing before I go to the store. The small things we run out of I go get when dh is home from work or when I can have someone help watch the littler kids.

  • I do the same as gemgem. Whenever we need milk or formula I wait until my baby's dad gets home so that I can pick something up. I hate going to the store with my baby, such a hassle.

  • Some grocery stores deliver. Check and see if there are any where you live.
