Just a quickie.

Does anyone know any US online grocery shops? In the UK Tesco, Asda, etc are all online. I need to get an idea on costings for the trip and of products available. E.g. do you get small sachets of coffee?:confused2

In the USA, most of the larger grocery chains have online ordering. They are oriented around home delivery so you will probably need to do a little homework to arrange for pickup or delivery to a designated location.

Usually the webpage format of... www.storename.com will get you to their shopping page. Typically they will have pricing info.

The larger chains in California are... Vons/Safeway, Albertsons, Ralphs, Stater Brothers. I think that's it. There are "bulk" chains like Food For Less and Winco Foods, but I am not sure they deliver. But they usually have larger packages of items. Lastly Costco and Sams Club are two big package retailers. I know Costco has online shopping, and they will mail non perishables.

They will sell and deliver anything they sell in the store.

I assume a sachet is pre bagged products like tea bags. Most stores do have the bagged coffees, but they are more expensive and there is less selection. Most coffee comes in cans or plastic/foil bags.

Good Luck,

Jim Henderson

In the US, we generally go to the grocery store and buy our food and sundries off the shelf. There are many places to do this somewhat close to the AT and these are what are listed as grocers and resupply points in the on-line ALDHA Companion (http://www.aldha.org/comp_pdf.htm)

Recall, we are two nations separated by a common language. Table that for now...
