Curbside grocery pickup and delivery has become very popular in the last couple of years. It makes it easier for busy adults to grab groceries on the way home from work or activities, or without taking kids into the store, which has been my godsend. Skip the cart and shop from your phone or computer!
Many people also find it budget-friendly, as it’s harder to sneak impulse buys into the cart when you can see a running balance – and easier to delete non-essentials if you go over your expected total.
While some stores charge a fee for pickup services, digital coupons offered from the stores may offset or eliminate the cost of service. Make sure you scroll through the available coupons before you start shopping! Paper coupons may be accepted at pickup; check store details for information.
If you’d rather shop from your phone or computer and pick up groceries and household goods on your way home without getting out of the car, check out some of the options below for grocery pickup and delivery in Las Vegas and Henderson areas.

Due to people rushing to stock their homes, available time slots for grocery pickup may be pushed back a few days. Stock is also low on some of the items, so expect many unavailable items or substitutions. Note that digital coupons you’ve loaded may not apply to the substituted product, so if you have a digital coupon for a product, you will want to select “no substitutions” for that item. You can refuse a substitution from an order at time of pickup.
Most store websites indicate that tips are not accepted by associates. Shoppers report that tips have been accepted, so it’s your discretion whether or not you offer a tip.
Grocery pickup brings your order to your vehicle. Pickup is free for your first 3 orders, and $4.95 thereafter. Digital coupons for select product purchases may qualify you for free pickup, and they do run no-fee offers throughout the year. *Pickup time is typically available same day if order is placed in the morning or early afternoon.

Smith’s is happy to accept paper coupons at time of pickup, but it will increase your pickup time, as the associate will have to go inside to make the adjustment. Ads run from Wednesday-Tuesday, so make sure you pickup order before the end of the sale in order to receive those prices. Items are selected and scanned the day of pickup, so use the correct sales ad for the day of pickup.
Your total on the website will not reflect applied digital coupons or discounts, which can be confusing, but your final receipt will show the details.

Your order won’t be charged to your card until you pick up.
