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.

Ann Arbor Grocery Store Hours and Pickup & 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.

Convenience Stores and Pharmacies

Convenience Stores and Pharmacies are also options for picking up grocery essentials. In the last 6 months I have picked up powdered sugar at Walgreens with my Christmas Card order and eggs at a (different) Walgreens after a skating class at Veterans Park. I don’t know what their curent inventory levels are.

Other Resources

The Ann Arbor Farmers Market provided a list of how you can contact their typical vendors and find their products.

We will also be working on information on food banks, school meal service, and others helping the community with free meals for kids home from school.

The following two tabs change content below.
Ann Arbor with Kids is your go-to source for Ann Arbor Family Fun. It got its start in an activity list that I was compiling for the playgroup I ran at our church. When my daughter started preschool, the other moms were thrilled to hear about my list. I decided to take the list public in 2009.
