Personal Shopper Program
Shopping for those in high-risk demographics
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. What is your mission / reason for existing?
A. We have it pretty well laid out, we think, on our home page. As stated there – For those who are confined to their homes during the Covid-19 outbreak, e.g. the elderly, the immuno-compromised and others in high-risk demographics, we provide a volunteer-run service, providing groceries and supplies from the Summit Store.
While we are partnering with the Summit Store, we are separate and distinct from them. Simply put, we are a group of local organizers and public servants, here to help people who can’t help themselves safely during this pandemic.
Q: Who do I contact with questions:
A: Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: Do you deliver to my area?
A: We only deliver to the local 95033 zip / Loma Prieta environs. We do cover Redwood Estates and currently have a driver willing to go to the Las Cumbres/Castle Rock areas on occasion. If you are outside of our delivery area, and are concerned about shopping, feel free to take advantage of our touch-free pick-up.
Q: How quickly can you fill an order?
A: Orders placed by 3 p.m. will be fulfilled the next day.
Q: What is Summit Store’s inventory? What are the prices? What is in store?
A: We freely admit that this will be a challenge for people expecting Safeway or Nob Hill online shopping. Summit Store does not have their inventory on-line. There is no real-time inventory. Also, as people continue to panic buy, inventory changes on a daily, even hourly, basis. We recommend you order what you think you want and our volunteer shoppers will do the best they can.
If this is does not work for you, we regret that we may not be the right option.
Q: Wait, you are not Summit Store’s online ordering option?
A: Summit Store does not have online ordering. We are not related / affiliated with the store; although we are working in close partnership with them (its the only real local option for many in our mountains).
