Several local stores now have agreements with delivery services to provide online shopping and delivery.

Three delivery companies offer grocery services in Lafayette: Shipt, iShopr and Instacart.

Generally, they work with a smart phone app; you open the app, put items in your shopping cart, chose a delivery time and send in your order. The app charges your credit card and then a shopper picks up your order and delivers it, getting in touch to discuss problems with out of stock items or other questions.
