Money Savers: Buying groceries online
Consumers have more options than ever before to get groceries delivered to their home. Some brick and mortar grocery stores do it. Now Amazon and apps like Instacart are expanding grocery delivery options.

But before the marketplace expanded, Minnesota company CobornsDelivers was offering consumers an online shopping and delivery option.

“If you look at our history, we’ve been doing this a long time,” says Dave Hartmann, general manager of CobornsDelivers. “We’re actually glad for the competition because we think that it brings awareness that it is okay to shop online for groceries.”

Orders are filled from a warehouse in New Hope that is set up much like a grocery store, with shoppers who fill orders and carefully pick out produce, meats, and bakery items for customers. Then, the items are delivered to customers in the seven county metro area. Drivers often develop personal relationships with customers.

“It’s a little bit of a throwback to the milkman, as the intent is to build relationships with customers,” says Hartmann.

You can save money by shopping online. CobornsDelivers offers specials and discounts, much like any grocery store. Plus, shopping online cuts down on impulse purchases and allows you to stay within your budget.
