Welcome

The Co-op wants to make shopping accessible for all Co-op owners, so we’re launching an online grocery service for curbside pickup or local Ashland delivery. Let us help by doing your shopping for you!

Curbside pickup slots are available up to seven days in advance. Pick-up is offered Monday through Friday from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm; deliveries begin going out at 1:30 pm and 1:45 pm. 

Before you begin, a few things to note:

  • Online ordering is limited to Co-op owners at this time. You can become a Co-op owner starting with just $10 - click here for more information.
  • Before you shop, make sure your account is setup. Click here for instructions.
  • Please do not shop for groceries AND Co-op Kitchen Made-to-Order meals in the same transaction. Because of logistical limitations, these orders must be placed separately.
  • Currently, the fee for curbside pick-up and delivery is being waived (you will see this fee waived on Step 4 of checkout). Delivery orders will include a $5 donation to the Rotary Club of Ashland in recognition of their delivery assistance. This donation is being passed through to the Ashland Emergency Food Bank.

Paying for and scheduling your pick-up 

At this time we have two options for our eGrocery Service:
Curbside Pickup Groceries Only
Delivery Groceries Only
Please note: Co-op Kitchen (Deli Made-to-Order) items cannot be added to your grocery shop and will not be honored. In addition to this, please DO NOT select “Co-op Kitchen Pick-up Only” when finishing your grocery shop.

There is a possibility that while you are shopping, all Curbside or Delivery slots will have filled. Your shopping cart will be saved, and will be immediately available again when new slots open up.

Department managers and Grocery pickers are focused on providing freshness and quality, so there will not be any sacrifices in quality for orders. Your order will be selected and packed on the same day as your pick-up, so you can be assured of product freshness.

For safety reasons, each bag will be limited to 15lbs max. Perishable items will be bagged separately, unless the total order is 1 bag, in which case all items will be bagged together and stored in the cooler.

FAQ 

Items that cannot be purchased at this time:

  • Bulk
  • Beer/wine
  • CBD products

Is there a minimum order?
Yes. $40.

Is there a maximum order?
Yes. $200.

Can I return items?
For the safety of our staff and our community, we are not taking returns during these unprecedented times.
If your order had an incorrect item/issue, please e-mail [email protected]

Can I use my dividends to order groceries?
Dividends can only be used in-store.

Why not use Instacart or Doordash?
The Co-op has a strong reputation for customer service, and is proud to include non-manager positions in a union. “Gig” type delivery services cannot guarantee the same standards of service, nor are they even technically employees of those companies. We cannot in good conscience support those services.

Is there a fee for Curbside Pickup or Ashland Delivery?
At this time we are waiving any fees for Curbside Pickup or Delivery due to these unprecedented times and with great help from the Rotarian Volunteers who are providing eGrocery deliveries.

Do you accept tips?
We hope to have a function added to our checking out to allow tips for the service/to our local food bank shortly.
Please do not hand our Curbside Clerk/Rotarian Delivery driver any money, as we are trying to make this a touchless delivery to you for the safety of everyone involved.

Do you accept orders over the phone?
At this time we do not have the capability nor the bandwidth to take eGrocery orders over the phone.

Do you accept EBT?
We are unable to process EBT payments on our eGrocery platform, but are able to honor it on eligible in-store purchases.
