Ann Arbor Grocery Store Hours & Options
Grocery Stores, Convenience Stores, and other food shopping are exempt from Governor Whitmer’s Stay At Home Order. However, many are operating on alternate schedules. Check out our list of Ann Arbor Grocery Store Hours along with pickup and delivery options.
Initially, I planned an article on Ann Arbor Grocery Delivery and Pickup Options. Unfortunately, while it sounds like a great idea, the grocery stores are largely overwhelmed with requests and it is not always a viable option. I have tried repeatedly to get an order in at Meijer, but have not found any pickup or delivery times. I was finally able to schedule a pickup for Sam’s Club, but could not add certain items like milk to the pickup. Since milk is the number one item I need, this was of limited usefulness.
Ann Arbor Grocery Store Hours and Pickup/Delivery Options
With COVID-19 causing an increase in grocery demand and potential for exposure, many local grocery stores have decreased their hours. These decreased hours allow them to increase cleaning protocols and stocking efforts.
Many grocery stores have closed self serve areas and may even limit the interactions at the deli and meat counters by pre-packaging items.
