Grocery store delivery or return shuttle

Hi there,

I was in Barbados in May and was able to buy my groceries at the Big B store in Worthing and took the shuttle back to my hotel.

Does any of you know if the new Massy store offers the same shuttle service? Also do they do delivery?

I will be coming back in early September and I am in the process of making a budget. However the new supercentre website (Massy) is under construction and I don't have access to any product price.

This is essentially the list of items that I plan to get at the store:

Eggs (12)

Cheddar cheese slices (12)

Loaf of bread

Milk (3 litres)

Water (24 bottles - 500 ml each)

Butter (454 g)

Lemon juice (1L)

7 Mahi Mahi fish fillets

10 Flying fish

Blue marlin (1 pound)

Ground beef (1 pound)

Cucumbers

carrots

tomatoes

lettuce

salad dressing

toilet paper

box of granola bars

box of cereal

I would like to have a general idea of the price. If any of you would happen to have an actual flyer from the store that you could scan/take a picture of and email to me that would also be great.

Many thanks is advance for any help anyone can provide.

Peter

I do believe the shuttles were being repainted to Massy Stores branding and should be on the road now. The new website still isn't ready as yet so no online ordering for the time being. I don't have specific pricing on several of the items you mentioned so it would be difficult to give exact prices.

Regards

BGI I truly appreciate your very quick reply.

I'm glad to hear that the shuttles should be available. I sent them a message through their Facebook account too so I will wait to see if they have some info about the prices.

Thanks again

Peter

BGI, Massy stores replied to my email. They said that I can just send them a list of the items that I want and they can have the items delivered on the day of my arrival. They will first give me the price list for all items.

Thanks again for your replied and help. Have a great day.

Go4happy wow! what an informative post.

I truly appreciate you taking the time to post all this info about the prices. Thanks so much.

I will be staying at Gentle breeze apartments which I've been told is across the road from the supermarket. I may end up just end up using one of the carts that they have available for the guests.

Many thanks again for all your help.
