How to be a good shopper?

Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives. The world has changed from quality to quantity, and so have we.

----- WILLIAM A. FOSTER, attributed, Igniting the Spirit at Work: Daily Reflections

When in doubt, mark item as "Not Available"

Items not available

If an item is not available, you need to make sure that you have marked the item as "Not Available" in the app. For doing so, you need to press "Not Available", it will show replacement screen, press "Not Available" again.


1. Choose high quality produce. Keep it refrigerated as needed in the store. The delivery may happen several hours after the order is shopped. Keep the produce safe and refrigerated as needed.

Examples below:

a) If bananas are completely ripe, and you think it may get rotten during transport, do not shop for bananas

2. Do not do replacements for vegetables, for e.g. do not replace mint with coriander. Do not replace one variety of mangoes with different variety of mangoes. 

The only allowed replacement is -- you can replace one variety of tomatoes with different variety of tomatoes. This is allowed as tomato is usually an essential ingredient in cooking and if customer does not receive tomato then he will have to go to shop himself

3. Try not to send extra quantity for produce. Ask for the store to provide a weighing machine close to the produce section (if not already available). 

Other Items

(Please note in these uncertain times with respect to available inventory and brands, these guidelines may change. Please see current guidelines.)
