If you’re hoping to skip out on the long lines at Winnipeg grocery stores by opting for delivery during the coronavirus pandemic, you might want to consider how long you could be waiting.
As of Thursday, Save-On-Foods and Instacart, which does delivery for chains like Walmart, Real Canadian Superstore and Wholesale Club, are showing their next available delivery date as March 31.
