Foodland providing free delivery during March


Southampton Foodland is doing its part to alleviate the stress of personal shopping during the coronavirus crisis.

During the month of March, the store is offering free delivery within its catchment area of Saugeen Shores.

“We will deliver on Monday, Wednesday and Friday,” says owner Martino Catalano.  “As long as people call in their order by 11:00 a.m, they can have same-day delivery.”

Catalano adds that the two main components surrounding the COVID-19 virus is the “… safety of our staff and our customers.”

The store has gone into extensive sanitizing and deep cleaning.  “We are following every health protocol issued by both our head office and Public Health,” adds Catalano.

While the store is receiving delayed inventory, according to Catalano, there may have to be limits for shoppers.  “We had a recent shipment of milk that was immediately bought up so we may have to limit things in order to let everyone have a share.  We have to watch out and care for our neighbours.”
