Imagine this: you pack up the car with everything but the kitchen sink and settle in for your 6-16 hour drive to the beach. After all that time on the road, you unload at the condo, smell the salt air, dip your toes in the gulf, then load back in the car and head to the grocery store.
It’s likely a Saturday afternoon and every other tourist is also jammed in the aisles of the store picking out bread, cereal, chips, and sodas for the week at the beach (though sometimes you do run into celebrities like Pop!).
Sounds like such fun, huh?
Enter: Be My Shopper!
Be My Shopper is an amazing grocery concierge service that happens to be owned by good friends of mine. The company will do your grocery shopping AND stock your condo or beach house fridge and pantry before you even arrive for your beach vacation. Now that’s the right way to start out your vacay!
Be My Shopper is family owned and operated and does all of their grocery shopping at Publix (we have a few locations within their delivery area) and they will gladly purchase fresh seafood from one of our local markets if that is what you want!
How does it work?
Be My Shopper has a really user-friendly website that allows you to select products and even add notes for your shopper if need-be. And it’s not just food products that Be My Shopper will deliver for you. They’ll be happy to purchase anything you’re likely to need during your stay like paper products, cleaning products, beauty and personal care products, as well as produce, snacks, drinks, deli meat, and more.
What does it cost?
$50 + grocery bill + 20% of grocery bill. That’s a small price to pay to avoid the chaos of Publix during the summer!
Once your groceries have been purchased, they load them up and deliver to your condo or beach house before you arrive. They can’t guarantee it’ll be done before your arrival due to access restrictions at some rental properties but they try their best. And not only does Be My Shopper deliver the goods, they unpack everything and put it all away for you!
I think you should spend your beach vacation at the beach- not in the grocery store. Don’t you agree?
