    Are you sure "Imperfect" doesn't extend to the whole shopping experience? I'd read the fine print just to make sure.

    I actually did lol at that one! :lol:

    On Monday I used the Jewel "Drive and Go" for the first time.

    I have used their delivery a couple of times since the pandemic started. It was fine.

    I used "Drive and Go" this round because the delivery basically requires a day and I wanted some of the items the same day. I ordered late morning and the earliest pick up wasn't until a few hours later, 3 pm was my slot. Still you are supposed to wait for an email saying your food is available and you have until 8 pm to get it. I got the confirmation email to pick up at 2:40 pm. Ironically, the Jewel at the end of my block doesn't offer this service, just delivery. So I had to drive a couple of miles to get it. I pulled into the parking lot and followed the signs. Once in a numbered "Drive and Go" parking space you dial a number on the sign where you are parked and tell them you are ready to pick up and give them your name.

    It was really quite painless. I tipped the young person who loaded the bags into my cargo area, alas they seemed surprised and grateful. I hope it was just the amount that threw them off (it was $5 and there were not many bags nor were they heavy or cumbersome) not the fact that no one is tipping them. The online face is a bit overwhelming for me but other than that I really liked this experience and would use it again. I don't know if they offered this pre-pandemic but I hope they keep it. Super useful for anyone with mobility issues or even parents with young kids.
