With the NZ lockdown announcement and subsequent panic buying, it's best to know your online grocery store options so you can stay safe at home.
Since the pandemic started, many Kiwis have turned to online shopping, including buying their essential needs. If you haven’t yet, you might want to consider doing your grocery shopping online. It's also convenient in that this can help you avoid hoarders, and you get to practice The Art of Buying Only What You Need. There's just a lot less chance of impulse buying (or hoarding!) when you're buying groceries online.
To help you get started, we’ve listed some of the best online stores to get your groceries in NZ!

I’ve just had a great experience with Kurt from glimp compare. He helped me through the process from the time I clicked onto the website, via the chat function. Long story short I have signed up to a new power and broadband provider with significant cost savings. There was no pressure at any stage, just respectful guidance and facilitation to initiate the new supply.
Good options, but ideally an option to combine & compare cost for best mobile + broadband option would be nice.
Virtually instant contact after filling out online form. Great rep - friendly and informative, great deal made for cheaper power, overall so far so good 😁
Easiest service to use and knowledgeable and experienced staff. Made switching power and broadband stress free! Thanks Jamie S, they answered all my questions I had about starting a new connection for broadband and power - even better than calling Slingshot direct as I got 3 months free internet and credit for using my own modem :)
Friendly staff, gave me different options and were able to save me $30 a month
