A Winnipeg Pub Switched To Delivering Groceries So Locals Don't Have To Wait In Lines
They've got produce and meat "ration packs" available.
Are you tired of waiting in line at the grocery store? If you're within the city limits of Manitoba's capital, this pub will do all the work for you. King's Head Pub Winnipeg is offering a new grocery delivery service to locals after they had to shut down because of COVID-19. Curbside pick up is also available.
King’s Head Pub announced that as of April 1 they will be doing contactless grocery delivery throughout Winnipeg and pick up just outside of the pub.
With this change in service, employees at King's Head still get to work and make money while people in the city get food without the hassle of actually shopping.
People can order meat and produce "ration packs" through the pub's website for two people or for four people.
All the food will be sourced directly from the suppliers that normally bring products to King's Head for them to use and then staff members will pack and deliver it all to people's front doors.
Or they'll leave it outside the pub for curbside pick up.
"We had a few conversations with our suppliers and we decided that we would try to repackage so that we could do more of a grocery-style of service," said Chris Graves, King’s Head owner, to Global News.
The produce pack has red delicious apples, bananas, avocados, cantaloupe, oranges, broccoli, jumbo carrots, celery, cucumber, romaine lettuce, mushrooms, yellow onions, peppers, potatoes, tomatoes, rice, eggs and a loaf of whole wheat bread.
For a four-person pack, there is just a higher quantity of each product.
The two-person produce pack costs $75 while the four-person one costs $130.
The meat pack has New York striploin steaks, chicken breasts, pork chops, salmon filets and bacon.
Just like the produce ones, there is a higher quantity of each product in the four-person pack.
The two-person meat pack costs $70 and the four-person one costs $135.
"This is quality hospitality industry product that we will be repackaging for consumer use,” Graves told CTV News.
After someone places an order online, they'll get notified with their time slot.
Both delivery and pick up at the pub will be contactless.
Other businesses across Canada have also been stepping up during this global pandemic like giving free food toor offering when someone says they need a meal.
