Willy Street Co-op launches grocery delivery

If at first you don’t succeed, try and try again. After several failed attempts, the Willy Street Co-op on Madison's North Side launches grocery delivery service on Thursday, according to an article in the Wisconsin State Journal.

Delivery is available throughout Madison and select suburbs —Middleton, Waunakee, and Monona — but for now pick-up service is only available at the co-op’s North Side store on Sherman Avenue. The co-op’s 35,500 members and nonmembers will be able to order groceries online and either pick them up at the North Side store or have them delivered to any address in Madison, Middleton, Monona and Waunakee.

Willy Street Co-op first attempted an e-commerce site in 2007, but it only lasted a few years. While other attempts were made, the delivery service provided by other local stores prompted the latest attempt. A minimum order of $50 is required for pick-up or delivery, and members pay a fee of $10 for delivery and $5 for pick-up service. Non-members will be charged $15 for delivery and $10 for pick-up.
