Why would you even bother looking at retail stores delivering groceries right now? Because successfully securing a grocery delivery order takes lightning quick skills in some regions — with many of us doing our online grocery order during 2 a.m. insomnia episodes. For other regions of the country, it’s simply impossible to secure a delivery slot.

So, creativity is the name of the game if you want to round out your grocery list for the week.

Here are a few non-grocery retailers offering to ship groceries to your home. Of course, these prices may not beat Walmart, but if availability is an issue for you, I hope you find these leads helpful!

To get deals on items like these below, download the KCL app and we will alert you to everything happening in grocery world.


1. Order coconut oil from Home Depot.

Sure, this particular coconut oil is packaged and sold as popcorn-popping oil, but there’s no reason you can’t also use it for anything else you’d use coconut oil to cook.

You’ll get free shipping to your home when you place a $45 order from HomeDepot.com.


2. Get produce, organic milk, cheese, and more delivered from Office Depot.

Since many offices stock the kitchen with food for employees, office supply stores can be your Plan B when your supermarket is out of stock and can’t fulfill all your grocery delivery items.

You can find food from so many categories like produce, dairy, meat, pantry, bread, frozen food, and more at OfficeDepot.com.

Plus, get 15% off when you sign up for Office Depot emails. Delivery is a flat rate of $9.95, comparable to delivery fees at Walmart or Kroger.


3. Order Greek yogurt, bacon, and whipped cream from Staples.

Staples.com has a lot of overlap with Office Depot when it comes to items sold, so if you can’t find something at one office supply store, check the other.

Shipping is currently free at Staples — no minimum order needed!


4. Get cereal, oatmeal, KIND bars, and more delivered from Macy’s.

Macy’s storefronts are closed right now, but you can find hidden gems to fill your pantry when you order a snack box from Macys.com.

Snack boxes range in price from $33 – $105, with the more expensive boxes offering more quantities of snacks. You’ll get free shipping when you spend just $25, so if you buy just one of these snack boxes, expect free shipping!

Here are a few examples of snack boxes:

While Edible Arrangements usually offers fancy fruit arrangements, during the coronavirus pandemic, they are also offering a box of fruit for $24.99. Shipping is free!

  • Cantaloupe
  • Bananas
  • Oranges
  • Apples
  • Grapes
  • Strawberries



7. JCPenney is delivering Harry & David produce and nut gift baskets.

8. Get non-perishable foods at CVS.com.

CVS.com allows you to online order pretty much anything that doesn’t require refrigeration, so thinks snacks, cereals, soups, canned goods. You can get all of this delivered, too, through Instacart so regular fees apply.
