Companies that allow you to order groceries online for home delivery include Peapod, Schwan's and Netgrocer. Amazon.com offers the Prime Pantry service, which provides home delivery for a variety of nonperishable food items. A number of major grocery chains, including Safeway, offer home grocery delivery services.
Some grocery delivery services, including Peapod, have limited service areas for home delivery. Peapod directly serves Chicago, Milwaukee, Indianapolis and southeastern Wisconsin. The company partners with Giant and Stop & Shop to serve other locations on the Eastern seaboard. Safeway's grocery delivery service also has a limited range.
Customers who live outside of major cities can take advantage of nationwide grocery services. Schwan's provides grocery deliveries to all of the lower 48 states. Company trucks deliver groceries in many locations; drivers drop off orders in freezer bags. For customers outside of standard delivery areas, Schwan's sends food through the mail in insulated foam coolers.
Netgrocer delivers groceries via FedEx. The company ships to the United States and to all Army Post Office and Fleet Post Office addresses.
Members of Amazon Prime can take advantage of the Prime Pantry service to order nonperishable grocery items. Customers must fill a box online; Amazon ships the box for a flat fee of $5.99, as of October 2015.
