I Ordered Groceries for the First time: Cornershop Review

This last year has seen an increase on many online services such as online shopping and food delivery. I’ve tapped into both but once that I’ve never done was grocery delivery services. With the ongoing increase of COVID cases everyday in the city, I’ve been avoiding going out less and less. That is why I decided to give grocery delivery Cornershop shop a try. Here is my full review.


About Cornershop

Cornershop is a grocery delivery service that operates just like food delivery services like UberEats. First you have to create an account. Based off of your address, a list of stores that are available will show up. The great thing is that it’s not just based on grocery stores, there are body shops and pharmacies as well. You then pick your store, add your items into your cart and checkout! There’s a delivery fee as well as a service fee selective to the store you picked. Once you checkout a reservation of the majority of the amount is reserved on your card, you don’t get charged until it’s delivered. Then a shopper gets matched to your order, and your order gets delivered minimum 90 minutes, depending on shopper availability, traffic ect.

My Order

It was a Saturday morning and I decided this time I would use grocery delivery Cornershop for the first time. I placed a bunch of groceries from Wal-Mart into my cart totalling $47.63. Cornershop service fee was $4.76, delivery fee was $6.90. After taxes total came to $61.67. I placed my order around 11:20 a.m. and it was delivered to me by 12:15 p.m. You don’t have to get your groceries delivered right away. You’re able to pick a delivery window as long as it’s within store hours. Once you place an order, you still have time to edit your shopping cart until the very last minute. Right before checkout, your shopper will call you to verify if you’d like to add anything to your order. If one of your items is unavailable your shopper will call to notify you to see if you’d like a replacement.

My Verdict

I was surprised at how quick the deliver was. I was expecting 90 minutes minimum but it got delivered within an hour. With produce, I was a little nervous they would pick bad quality items but the shopper did a good job at picking everything. The hiccup through this process was the shopper almost delivered my items to the wrong house which is understandable as the townhouse complex I live in the numbering can be confusing. Luckily I caught him outside right before. Would I use grocery delivery Cornershop again? Of course! Definitely would recommend. Especially if you take the bus, the extra fees is just shy from 2 bus fares.
