You can schedule a delivery up to two weeks in advance or as early as the same day. We offer a range of 90-minute delivery windows depending on the delivery area so you don't have to sacrifice your whole day waiting for the doorbell to ring. We'll always call you 15 minutes prior to delivery, just to let you know we're on our way. Someone must be present to receive the order. No delivery will be left unattended at a customer's residence or business.
Your order is brought to your door by our professional delivery team who are often complimented on their friendliness and desire to go out of their way to make your Grocery Gateway experience perfect. Need your groceries brought right to your kitchen table? Just ask!
The Eco Fee replaces our former Fuel Surcharge Fee, and is used to support initiatives dedicated to minimizing the environmental and social impact of our practices. You will see the fee accurately and transparently reflected in the Eco Fee at checkout – separate from the delivery cost. Click here for more information about the Eco Fee.

If you cancel your order after the cut-off time (11 AM for next morning delivery or 10 PM for next afternoon delivery), you will be charged in full for the order and a $25 Restocking Fee will apply.

Grocery Gateway occasionally utilizes a third-party delivery service to ensure deliveries arrive during their scheduled delivery windows. As such, your delivery experience may be different. While your items are still selected and packed at our fulfillment centre, the driver may not arrive in a Grocery Gateway truck. All third-party delivery services are vetted to ensure their procedures match our high food safety and handling standards. All third-party delivery services are required to provide proof of adequate training of their drivers, sanitize their vehicles and delivery equipment daily, and use thermal bags to ensure all products stay at temperature. Until further notice, third-party delivery drivers are required to wear a face mask and gloves.
Deliveries during hazardous driving conditions
The safety of our delivery personnel and the public is paramount to us. We ask that you please ensure your walkways are cleared of any snow and ice. Our delivery staff is instructed to exercise caution when driving through inclement weather and other road hazards, which may result in delays. If your delivery will be delayed due to hazardous driving conditions, we will call or email you as soon as possible on that day to let you know. If your delivery will be delayed beyond 10pm, our Customer Care team will call you with the option of re-scheduling for the following day. If you have any questions about our Hazardous Driving Conditions Policy, please contact our Customer Care team.
Tips for an easy delivery
We’ll do our best to make your delivery perfect, but we'd like your help too! Double check that your delivery address is correct and that you’ve included any important details (like a buzzer number). Also, remember to leave your light on for late night and early morning deliveries. Have a pet? If you think they’ll be caught up in our driver’s feet, or be after the food, please keep them in a separate room until your delivery is complete.
As of March 16, 2020: Due to current events, and in the interest of the health and safety of our Guests and Team Members, we will not be accepting product or delivery bag returns until further notice.
Recycling Grocery Gateway Bags
Notice something new about your delivery? You may notice that your delivery arrives in compostable bags instead of our traditional boxes. We’re currently on our way to becoming a Zero-Waste delivery service and this change in delivery is reflective of this commitment. You can reuse the bags in your green bin at home or to dispose of pet waste. If you live in an area that does not accept compostable bags into the Compost / Green Bin collection program, simply return your bags to your delivery driver at the time of your next delivery. We will ensure the bags are disposed of safely and correctly.
