So if you're thinking about trying them out for the first time (or you just want to learn a little more about the program), we put together a quick reference guide for you!
So how does it all work? If you've never tried online grocery shopping before, rest assured that the process is all pretty simple. Just follow these three steps, and you'll have your groceries in almost no time!
- 1. Log in to your Zehrs account, fill your cart and head to the checkout
- 2. A personal shopper will select and bag all your chosen items
- 3. Pull up at your designated pickup time to collect your groceries
Why should you buy groceries online? There are a few different reasons, but the biggest benefit I can think of is how much time it can save you. When you shop for groceries online, you get to choose when you do it. You aren't confined to the times your local store is actually open, so you can start building your cart in the middle of the night (if that's what works for you). You also get to choose when and where you pick up all your groceries, so you can select whatever timeframe and location are best for you.

How to order groceries online
Create an account. The first step is making sure you have a PC id. If you haven't signed up for one before, you can create an account by entering your name, email address, phone number and postal code and creating a password. If you're hoping to score deals on your orders, make sure you use an email address you check regularly, since Zehrs will send you sales and promo codes!
Fill your cart! After you sign in, the next step is grabbing everything on your list! You can browse their virtual store by aisle or head straight for the Zehrs Cart Starter, which has pre-made guides for different families and needs. While you shop, just keep in mind that you need to spend at least $30 for an online order.
Place your order and check out. Ready to check out? Zehrs will prompt you to select a pickup time and location. Remember that you need to place your order at least two hours before your designated pickup window!
Make the call. If you'd rather do things over the phone, you can place a grocery order by calling the Zehrs Online Grocery customer service line toll-free at 1-866-541-6315 between 8 AM and 12 AM EST any day of the week.
Changing your order. It's okay if you change your mind. You can usually modify your order by editing your cart before the designated cut-off time.
Picking up your order at PC Express
Picking up your order. When it's time to pick up your groceries, all you need to do is head to your selected store, pull into a designated PC Express parking spot, and Zehrs employees will load everything into your car for you!
How much does Online Grocery cost? The actual cost can vary, but, in most cases, each online order includes a fee of about $3 to $5. If you're hoping to score a deal or save a little money, check out our tips below!
Tips for saving a little extra money
One of the nice perks to shopping online (besides the fact that you can do it in your pyjamas) is the fact that you get all the same deals, promotions and discounts that you would if you shopped in-store. And yes, that includes anything in the Zehrs flyer. However, there are still a few other ways you can save money!
Make sure you get the new customer discount. Right now, new Zehrs customers don't need to pay ANY pickup fees for their first 31 days! To qualify, you actually do need to be a brand-new Online Grocery shopper, and you'll need to use the code FREEMONTH at checkout on your first order over $30.
Remember your PC Optimum points! If you link your PC Optimum card to your Zehrs account, you can earn and redeem points when you buy groceries online! If you want to collect points on online orders (and why wouldn't you?), just inform the PC Express concierge and have your PC Optimum card or app ready to scan. Not a member yet? It's never to late to sign up for PC Optimum!
Earn extra PC Optimum points! While you're at it, you might as well score a few more rewards! Until May 19, 2018, you can earn a bonus 10,000 PC Optimum points when you spend at least $100 on Zehrs Online Grocery and check out with the code BM10K2018! You need to be a new customer to apply for this deal, and some exclusions apply (so you can't use tobacco, alcohol or lottery toward that total).
Bring your own bags. Zehrs employees will use plastic bags to prepare your order, unless you say otherwise. If you want to bring your own reusable bags, just mention this on the Subtitutions & Notes page.
Return anything that isn't fresh. Your personal shopper will always try to select the freshest produce and perishables possible, but sometimes mistakes happen. If you receive an item that isn't at its best, just check out their return policy, and you should be able to exchange it or bring it back.
Use coupons when you shop. Unfortunately, price matching isn't available when you buy groceries online, but you can always keep an eye out for the latest Zehrs coupon codes to save a little extra on your orders!
