Yesterday and today (ordering/picking up) was my first experience with shopping online to have the store put the items in my car for me due to being with FIL and not wanting to take any chances at all with him getting the virus. We picked Walmart because it or Food Lion are the only places around us here.
I'll admit I vastly prefer my own shopping... first, there are several dented cans. I never buy them, but it seems the shopping picker didn't care so we have a fair number now. Is that common?
Also, I ordered avocado oil from Chosen Foods and they substituted Great Value. That's not a big deal, but when I unpacked it the whole bottle was covered in a thin film of oil. It leaked in my car. The cap still seems to have a safety cover under the opening, but it can't be sealed well. I'm guessing it's still ok to use?
They were out of 85% lean hamburger and didn't substitute anything for it, but still gave us the hamburger buns. Uh... guess those go in the freezer?
The green pepper is a nice one (all produce seems good), but it was packed with cans and is now cut open from being squished - still useable, but...
They wanted to substitute canned green peas for a seasoned bean mix. I rejected that at the car. They aren't even close to the same and we don't eat canned green peas.
For those of you who use this service, is this what you experience or is my first experience odd and luck of the draw?
A little over an hour away is a Kroger. Would my experience be better if I went there in the future? Or are pickers pretty much the same everywhere. Stores may even be happy to get rid of dented cans I suspect.
Or would Food Lion be ok? (I'm totally unfamiliar with them and don't even know if they offer the service. Kroger I know I like, but distance is a factor.)
I plan to fill out Walmart's survey.
