Seward Co-op Curbside Pickup is now available at both of our stores designed to serve members of our community who are most at risk, including those who are first responders, folks over 60 years old, and those with compromised immune systems.
Beginning April 7, Seward Co-op will begin Curbside Pickup. This online ordering program will be available at both of our stores. Curbside Pickup is designed to serve members of our community who are most at risk, including those who are first responders, folks over 60 years old, and those with compromised immune systems. Once we perfect logistics, we will make it more broadly available.
If you qualify, you will be able to select top-selling products from an online catalogue. If desired products are not in the catalogue, you may make special requests for specific items using the comment box at the end of the order. We are unable to accept orders over the phone. Once Seward Co-op receives your order, an employee will pick the items ordered. The employee will call you and take final payment via credit card over the phone. (The total cost can only be determined after the employee picks the order, because items like produce need to be weighed.) We will charge a $6 service fee. The order will be available for pick up during the “pickup window” you select. Pick up an order at the Franklin store from designated parking spots on 29thAve. Pick up an order at the Friendship store from designated parking spots on 38th St. An employee will deliver the order to your car.
We are excited to support our community in this new way. Please note that there are some limitations. We are legally unable to accept payment over the phone via government food access programs including SNAP/EBT and WIC. In addition, the pandemic has strained the co-op’s supply chain. We may be unable to provide all ordered products at the time of purchase.
Seward Co-op has worked quickly to build the tools to support this new program. We are excited to launch Curbside Pickup. We will work quickly to expand it in the future to meet more needs in our community. As we roll it out, there will likely be some glitches. Please be patient and respect the co-op’s decision to begin with orders from first responders, folks over 60 years old, and those with compromised immune systems.
