How can I pickup my neighbours order with mine?

We strongly encourage neighbours, friends and family helping each other during this time of uncertainly.  We will gladly bundle multiple orders together for one person to pickup.  Please leave us a note on the cart page of check out in the "message to seller" box, and clearly explain who's groceries you will be picking up or who is going to be picking up for you.  Only one pickup slot is required. 

Why do I need to select a pickup time?

So our team can have your groceries safely packed and ready for you, pickup times are required. We also want to limit the traffic in front of our building and sidewalk to ensure physical distancing for everyone. Pickup times are now selected at checkout! 

Can I collect my Local Source loyalty points?

We are happy to welcome back Loyalty points. 

This new online system costs roughly 3% plus .30 per transaction.  In order to offer both, an online system and have our points system, we have had to change to rewards level.  Until further notice points may be used to redeem Molasses Seed bread! 

It is important to remember that points do not expiry and we will hopefully be able to introduce another reward level soon. 

 I missed my pickup...how do I collect my order now?

We ask that you give us a call on the Pickup Hotline (902) 406-2447 between 11:00 am & 4:30 pm to arrange an alternate time that works.  If you've ordered fresh baked goods, we will freeze them until you arrive to maintain quality.     

I didn't get my entire order. What happens now?

That's a bummer! I hate it when that happens! First check the receipt that was on your grocery order. Sometimes we need to refund items, if it does not pass quality control. If we have accidentally missed an item in your order, please email us so we can figure out what to do next!
