Home Delivered Groceries - Rockhall, MD

Hi guys, I'm having a hard time finding an online shop that delivers Groceries in Rockhall, MD. Any suggestions?
And the ones I have looked at that don't deliver there don't sell alcohol!!!
Can you not get booze delivered to your house (Marina) in USA?

Preferably I'm looking for the kind of shop that does discounts and delivers in bulk for groceries and alcohol.

I don't know if they can help but Giant has a home delivery option via their PeaPod service. As you can't buy beer and wine (much less the harder stuff) in the grocery store you likely won't be able to get it through them.

Thanks Frankz, but they're one of the ones that doesn't deliver there, however, I may be in Annaopolis before I head out to bluewater, and I'm guessing the shopping is better there.
I just found this - Grocers Directory of Maryland and the Asian and Mexican food suppliers look good. Most of it is long life stuff too.

Capt J,

Rock Hall, as you probably know, is a very small, rural, bayside village. Not much there but a small, local grocery and a small liquor store. Provisioning in Annapolis is a good idea. On the Eastern Shore, Harrison's in Easton is the best wine and liquor merchant in that area.

Thanks for the compliment, Gord. I am, without being too presumptuous I hope, a true BWS.

I just always figured you don't get older not knowing about eating and drinking in more locations than your backyard. Cruising is at it's heart long periods of eating and drinking followed by planning about eating and drinking delayed by periods of boating while eating and drinking. Should you slow down you could end up staved or dehydrated or at least miserable. No one wants that.

Grocery delivery was a thing started some years back but mostly in the bigger cities. The idea was there is no parking lot where you can go and stand in line. They locate the warehouse in Industrial parks and load trucks like they do at UPS. It's not put Sams Club, CostCo or BJ's out of business just yet.

None of those images come to my mind about the Eastern Shore. It may be the reason it's such a nice place to go.

Ah I see, I guess the USA being much bigger than the UK makes such schemes more difficult. Anyone planning on visiting the UK should use Asda online for provisioning (owned by walmart!) They will deliver for about $5 anywhere in the UK, food and booze (they also do electrical, CD's, kitchenware etc.), and are the best value here.

We had it in Minneapolis, MN when we lived there. We used it 12 months. Sent the order in before your delivery day via internet and they delivered on time. It was a once a week deal though. Prices comparable to going and dragging it home from the local market excpt for things you just really want to pick out persoanlly. No liquor though. You can't get that easily here in the US. They make you show up in person. Drugs are different. They deliver those no charge. Go figure that out.
