This afternoon, I drove with my newborn through the pouring rain to the Sendik's in Whitefish Bay. I pulled my minivan into the parking lot and found a spot designated for customers using Sendik's Express, their new online ordering system.
I texted the number shown on the sign to let them know I was there for pickup. I immediately received a message back letting me know they would be right out with my order.
A few minutes later, my "personal shopper" appeared with 8 bags of groceries, filled with the foods I had personally picked online earlier that day.
I have to admit, I kind of felt like Kim Kardashian.
My days of fearing the trip to the grocery store with children in tow are officially over.
Sendik's online ordering is truly a mom's best friend. (And no one is paying me to say this, by the way.)
The charge is $5.99, which I consider completely and totally worth every penny.
My personal shopper even gave me a call when she noticed they were out of one of the items I ordered. She wanted to make sure I was okay with a different brand.
And to top it off, since I was a first time Sendik's Express customer, and my order was over $100, I got a free item. I was able to choose between Sendik's kringle, Sendik's popcorn or mufffins from their bakery. (I chose the muffins!)
