From the Press Release:
Asheville, NC – Asheville will soon have its own personalized grocery shopping and delivery service. Simply, To Go, launching next week, will provide individualized grocery shopping and delivery from local grocery stores and, eventually, specialty shops. Simply, To Go is based on a philosophy of world-class customer service, a commitment to our local community, and a desire to make life a little bit simpler and shopping a whole lot easier.
Ordering groceries will be a simple process. Customers can visit the Simply, To Go website at www.simplytogonc.com, where they place their order for all of their grocery needs from their favorite local store, select a delivery date and time range, and sit back and relax! Customers can even specify particular items or brands for their list or ask that all items purchased be organic, gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian, or Kosher. Simply, To Go personal shoppers will individually shop each customer’s order before delivering it to the customer and carrying it into their home. Personal shoppers will also be committed to always purchasing the best item for the best price.
“Personal shopping is something that Asheville is lacking at the moment,” said Tyler McCall, Simply, To Go’s Founder.
“It is something a number of folks in our area can benefit from including busy parents, homebound individuals, and professionals with schedules that don’t allow them to shop for themselves.”
Simply, To Go will start with a delivery area that serves the Asheville City Limits and some nearby communities. Pricing will be based on the total grocery bill with a shopping and delivery fee for each order. Orders with a total over a certain amount will receive free delivery. Simply, To Go will have preferred stores for shopping, but other stores can be added for a nominal fee. McCall hopes to expand the business’s offerings to include personal gift shopping and services for local restaurants, bars, and other food businesses.
Simply, To Go officially begins delivery on March 18 with limited delivery times for the remainder of the month. To learn more, visit www.simplytogonc.com, “Like” Simply, To Go on Facebook at www.facebook.com/simplytogo, and follow them on twitter at www.twitter.com/simplytogonc.
The owner Tyler is a cool cat, who contributes to The 20 Somethings an Asheville blog I read on a regular basis. So if you are too lazy to shop for your own groceries and I know you are, give Simply, To Go a call!
