  • Drop-off allows shoppers to order and have their groceries brought to a central location for drop-off. Typically used to deliver on a more limited schedule to dense locations like corporate offices, dorms, assisted living facilities and condos.Most are set up for something like “Drop-off available Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 4:30 PM”, allowing stores to offer a delivery-like service without having a driver taking single orders all day.
