Italian Centre Shop now offering free grocery delivery to Edmonton and surrounding areas/contributed

In response to overwhelming requests for delivery service, The Italian Centre Shop is offering home delivery of groceries as of Monday, March 23. Servicing Edmonton and surrounding communities, the service runs Monday through Friday in Edmonton, on Monday and Wednesday in Sherwood Park, and on Tuesday and Friday in St. Albert. 

Italian Centre Shop owner Teresa Spinelli said on Twitter, "You asked, we listened. Thanks to our team for working so hard to deploy this safety measure. Food is love..Now have it delivered to your doorstep. And yes, the deli counter is open."

Shoppers must spend a minimum of $75, and all orders are to be prepaid by Visa/Mastercard only. Drivers will contact the customer upon arrival, leave order at requested location and wait from a safe distance to insure order has been collected.

Order desk hours for next day delivery are 8-4 Monday to Friday. Call 780424-4869, or email

Spinelli says while she doesn't have drivers or trucks in place to offer delivery in Calgary, a curb-side pick up option is in the works. "Stay tuned," she said.

The shop continues to reserve the first hour of business (Monday to Thursday 9-10 a.m.) at all stores in Edmonton and Calgary for seniors and the immunocompromised.
