Grocery pickup options Chicago. Now that the Mayor is enforcing the lockdown order you may want to avoid going outside except in your vehicle. Following is a list of places where you can order groceries to be picked up. Pick up availability may vary by location. Keep in mind that many stores are short staffed and Instacart is inundated. The key is to be flexible. Availability varies by the day. Make a list and keep checking store websites for your items. Also the deals and offers I mention below were good at time of publication and are subject to change.
