PC Express Grocery Pick-up During Covid-19 Review

grocery store to denote using PC Express during Covid-19

PC Express grocery pick-up during Covid-19, sounds like an interesting idea. Because right now we live in a world of social distancing to prevent the spread of the virus. With PC Express, you do not even have to enter the grocery store. All you do is place your order for groceries online, pick an available pick up date and go to one of the designated parking spots to pick up your groceries. You don’t even have to get out of your care as they will even load your groceries into your trunk if you pop it open for them. Sounds like an awesome way to do your grocery shopping during the pandemic. My wife and I thought we’d give it a try.

PC Express Grocery Pick-Up During Covid-19 – Expect Delays

Last weekend my wife placed our order online to PC Express and as expected pick up times were filling up fast. We expected this as we assumed many would try this. However, there was one slot available – a pick up time of Wednesday at 6 pm and we took it.

A few days later, on Tuesday Superstore sent us an email that our order could be delayed a day or more and they would contact us once our order was ready. We had no problem with this as we knew they would be busy and actually appreciated the email letting us know. We weren’t in a rush to get the groceries. Two days later on Thursday we got another email message stating that our order was ready to be picked up. I got ready and went to Superstore to get our groceries.

PC Express Grocery Pick-Up During Covid-19 – Things Get a Bit Chaotic

As I got to Superstore the first thing I noticed was that the place was packed with cars! I think the sunny day was partly to blame for this. As I drove to the PC Express stalls (they had 8 marked stalls), I noticed all of them were filled with cars, all with their trunks open waiting for their groceries. I also noticed over a dozen other cars around these stalls with their trunks open waiting to pick up groceries. Immediately I thought, “Houston, we might have a problem”.

I found a parking stall as close as I could to the PC Express ones and then called the phone number that had been given to me in the email. As soon as I finished dialing the number, I immediately was given the message, “the phone call you attempted has failed”. That was weird, so I tried to call again a few more times and got the same message. I then called my wife at home and asked her to call from her end. She could not get through as she got a busy signal. We both kept trying. My wife finally got through and was told to leave a number to be contacted later. She did and as soon as she did she got cut off. Not knowing what to do, I decided to go in the store.

PC Express Grocery Pick-Up During Covid-19 – Things Get a Bit Unsafe

I went to customer service and was directed to the PC Express area, which were by the check out aisles. As I got to the area, there were grocery carts full of food everywhere and I assumed that these were all the pending PC Express orders. By these carts was the PC Express area. It was a small room about the size of a small bedroom. There was a large fridge and groceries in there along with about four people working feverishly in it. All of them looked completely overwhelmed. I felt for them. Unfortunately, only one person had a mask on. The rest did not. Also, they were working pretty much shoulder to shoulder, so social distancing was not being practiced. But how could it be? The room was way too small for it.

I managed to talk to one of the workers and tried to keep my distance (fortunately I was wearing a mask, googles and gloves) and explain my situation. He was at least wearing gloves. He took my license plate number and make of my car and told me to pop my trunk and expect a long wait. I went back to my car and waited.

After a Long Wait, Go into the store again

I waited for an hour in the car and tried the number a few more times but to no avail. So I decided to go back in again to check the status of my order. As I got to the PC Express area there were still a lot of carts with food parked. There were also a few people lined up to talk to PC Express and I lined up behind them trying to keep my distance between people. One person beside me had a mask on which gave me a little relief.

However, we were lined up in the area where people exit the check out aisles. Also, the PC Express carts with food were also in the area and all of a sudden, things were very congested. There was no chance of practicing safe social distancing, as we were constantly moving to avoid people leaving with their groceries. It was a bit unnerving.

No End In Sight

As I got closer to the front of the line, the person in front of me said that her original pick up date had been Tuesday. At that point, I realized that I might have a long wait yet. When it was my turn to talk to the employee , she said that there were 7 or 8 orders ahead of me and that once they got to me that they would then make my order. I thought that was weird as the email they sent me said that my order was ready. At this point I started to feel a bit angry.

I asked if could just take my order myself. She said that I would have to wait and when I asked how long – she said she could not tell me. She had no idea how long it would take. I tried to explain to her that I’d been there an hour ago asking the same questions. She said she was just there helping out. No further help was provided.

Time to Flee!

I then realized “This is not right!” Here I am talking to this poor stressed out lady who is trying to help. She’s not wearing a mask and has no gloves on. We are only standing three feet apart. The people in the PC Express department behind her weren’t wearing protective wear, and were way too close and are touching people’s grocery orders. The people beside me were way too close and the people going by us wee way too close. Not good!! We were all in danger.

Why would Superstore overbook their pick up Service so much? Why would they not provide their employees with protective wear? And why did we have to line up in a main exit for customers?

I realized right there and then that I had to leave and protect myself and my wife at home, as staying there longer increased my danger of getting infected. I said to the lady to cancel my order immediately and I left as quickly as I could and went home. When I got home, I immediately took off the clothes I was wearing put them in the storage room (our sort of decontamination zone) and took a shower and calmed myself down.

Conclusion

I would not use PC Express grocery pick-up during Covid-19. It is way too risky. They don’t have enough space, manpower, or organization to make this work safely during the Covid-19 pandemic. You would be safer just going into Superstore and shopping yourself. Or even safer, just go somewhere else to shop. (A place that is smaller and far less busy.) I do have a friend who says the service is great but she shops at a different location than the one I went to. I was pretty freaked out by the experience.

Also, yesterday the news reported that the location I went to has a case of Covid-19 with one of their employees. The employee hasn’t been to work since April 12th but I wasn’t surprised in the least based on my experience. I really hope that Superstore improves their PC Express service – in particular at this location. Because people’s health and lives are at risk. However, I am not going to take the chance to find out. Instead I will be shopping somewhere else where I feel safer. Stay safe everyone.

Calgary Grocery Delivery – Getting Safe Groceries during Coronavirus

Not very long ago, a quick trip to the grocery store was just a normal part of our day. Forgot a simple ingredient that you needed for that new recipe? Perhaps it was a lemon, or a head of fresh garlic, or a bunch of parsley. No problem! You could just quickly hop in the car or walk over to your favourite local grocery store or even farmer’s market, get what you needed and just head home.

Haven’t things changed quickly? And in a way we never would have expected? Grocery shopping now isn’t the simple pleasure it used to be. I used to love lingering over the fresh produce, selecting the most delicious looking apples, melons or peppers. But now – in the time of coronavirus – grocery shopping has become a necessary task, but one that can fill us with fear and anxiety.

Today, then, we will discuss some ways to ease that stress and keep safe from the virus while grocery shopping – by using grocery pick-up and grocery delivery services. That way, you don’t even have to leave the comfort and safety of your home!

Grocery Delivery services in Calgary

Thankfully, the Internet provides us with so many options to grocery shop online! Simply visit your favourite store online, and fill your virtual shopping cart and then arrange a time to either pick up your groceries, or have them delivered. Please keep in mind that stock may be limited, or even unavailable – especially on hot items like (you guessed it!) toilet paper, Lysol wipes and canned goods like beans or tuna.

  1. Prairie Farms in Willow Park Village – is a family-run produce market, previously operated out of the Calgary Farmer’s Market. You can order all your fresh produce here – their prices are great, and the produce is second to none. (Last fall, during apple season, their Ambrosia apples were literally my favourite thing to eat. They were as fresh as possible, and gorgeously crisp and delicious. The best apples I’d eaten in years!) Support a local business for your produce (and they also sell local farm fresh eggs, and locally and ethically produced meats.) And our small local businesses sure could use a hand right now!
  2. Real Canadian Superstore – This large supermarket offers both pick-up and grocery delivery. With current events being as they are, you may need to choose a delivery or pick up time that is about two days later than when you place your order. Delivery fees vary, depending on ‘Busy Times’ – meaning that you’ll pay more for premium delivery times, such as evenings. Pick-up services have a smaller fee attached to them…usually about $3-$5. Still, for someone picking out and packing your groceries for you, this is a reasonable cost!
  3. Walmart – I have used Walmart grocery pick-up services in the past (before the coronavirus outbreak) and I loved it! (You need to spend a minimum of $50 to get either pick-up or delivery.) Walmart grocery pick-up is FREE! For grocery delivery the fee is $9.97. The selection of products available is still quite good.
  4. Save-on Foods – offers delivery, and again their fees are higher for delivery at the most popular times. Their delivery charges range from $7-$10, which is still a great deal to get a large order of groceries brought right to your door!

Right now, stocking up on groceries feels more important than it ever has before. So, if you need to get some supplies in – try grocery pick-up or delivery options in the Calgary area. For a pretty reasonable fee, you can get the groceries and supplies that your family needs to be prepared!
