Garden Grocer vs Wego shop?

Not sure if this is the correct forum... We are arriving April 28. I want to order some soda, water and snacks. Garden grocer was recommended but the prices seem high. Has anyone used Wego? Is it cheaper? Is the service as good?

We used wegoshop in December. They will go to whatever store you choose. We had them go to Walmart for baby supplies and groceries. Prices were the same as my home Walmart plus delivery fees. I would absolutely recommend them. Just a heads up though, my shopper told me most people place orders 4-6 weeks in advance so get your order in soon!

We used WeGoShop last October and Amy was great. There were a couple of things I'd ordered that Publix didn't carry the brand I'd asked for. So Amy called me to give me alternative options. They also can get hard liquor in addition to beer and wine, which was a plus for us.

Amy was at the resort exactly when she said she'd be there and the transaction was flawless!

I have used wegoshop and would recommend them. The service was really good--getting the exact items that I needed and being on time with the delivery--they came to our room vs dropping at bell service. The delivery fee is higher, but there is no mark-up. We probably saved over garden grocer because while their fee is lower, they do mark-up the items. Have a great trip!

I have used two different shopping services and by far the best and most reasonable is www.mousehouseconcierge.com
Awesome experience!

Really? A case of water is $17.00, box of cereal or bag of chips is $6.00 - that doesn't seem to be the most reasonable, but I guess it depends on what you want. They seem to have more than just food/booze deliveries.

We used wegoshop and really loved it. They shopped at Winn-Dixie for us, we checked the ads and got things like Buy 1, Get 1, and lots of sale items. Very reasonable, excellent selections even produce was good. She carried everything into our cabin and arrived exactly on time. I would absolutely recommend them. I felt Garden Grocer was more limited in their selection and more expensive overall because of the mark-up.

I used WeGoShop in 2011, and Amy was great. We are going again this July, and I plan to use them again.

we've only been once...last spring and we used Garden Grocer. I was happy with their service. We also ordered beer-no big deal at all. This year I was looking for something I didn't see listed on their site and so I e-mailed them and received a response that their shoppers will look for it this week and let me know if they are successful.
