A local resident has started a grocery delivery business for the Bellingham area.
This week Julie Paylor started Grocery Express, where customers can phone, e-mail or fax in their grocery list and she’ll take care of getting and delivering the products. She said she got the idea from her grandparents.
“They’re both 90 years old and they surf the Internet and e-mail me every week,” Paylor said in a press release. “They have been very active throughout their lives, but age and medical problems can get in the way of a normal routine. That’s where my business comes in. People who need extra help don’t always have a family member around.”
Paylor said she charges a single flat fee on top of the cost of buying the groceries and will deliver anywhere in the Bellingham area. She carries store club cards to get the best prices and customers can be specific about brands.
Along with seniors, Paylor believes there is also a market for businesses and mooring boaters who need provisions.
Grocery Express also delivers for parties, picnics and events, with operating hours 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. To place an order or for more information, call (360) 303-7093, fax 715-1208 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
