Good Grocery 70114(that delivers too?)

louweezy Mar 4, 2009 08:59 AM

Hi, Mom lives in NOLA(Westbank), I am in Chicago. She called & asked me to send her some decent, real, whole wheat bread & some Vienna products. She doesn't get around very easily, & I wondered if anyone knew of a decent grocer that carried something closer to a whole wheat bread as opposed to a brown "wonder" bread. I know there's a Whole Foods somewhere there, but I was hoping for someplace that delivered. Here at home we have Peapod, but I can't seem to find anything similar down there. I suppose I can find some stuff thru net.grocer, but was hoping to do it locally for her-Any suggestions? Thanks Much

    I am not aware of any grocers on the Westbank that deliver. Sorry.

      United Cabs offeres grocery service. According to the website:

      "Need Groceries? Call our service number with a short shopping list and we will pick it up and bring it to your door. We collect upon delivery."

        I have a feeling bringing groceries to Algiers from a New Orleans cab company could get pretty pricey.

          Algiers is in New Orleans.

            I know where Algiers is...I live in Algiers Point. But it's still across the CCC. I took a cab from Harrah's to my house in the point and it was ...let's just say...not cheap. I just couldn't see calling a cab company to drive across the bridge from New Orleans into Algiers to buy you groceries being a reasonable solution. If there are cab companies on the Westbank that offer that service, then I could see it being an option.

        You can certainly find whole wheat products on the WB but I do not know what you mean by Vienna products. Delivery I can imagine is a problem. I shop with an elderly person that doesn't drive and maybe I could be of some help.

          yeah, i'm sure that there are plenty of nice people out there that would be willing to help you out. ie. take her shopping or pick some stuff up! i would hate to think of my mom eating bad food because she couldn't get around.

            I live right near the whole foods in Metairie, and would be glad to pick things up for her
