It’s already started snowing in Calgary, which shouldn’t come as much of a surprise if you’ve grown up here. But with temperatures dropping, going outside couldn’t be more of a pain in the (frozen) butt.
So if you still have to buy a decent, Calgary-proof winter coat and a pair of boots, or need some groceries, or anything else really, there’s an app that can go and pick up those things for you: ParcelPal.
Forget waiting in lineups, because this on-demand delivery app makes it possible for you to go into hibernation mode all winter, because it looks after the small tasks that you hate doing yourself.
Here’s how it works.
Pick a store
Unlike other apps, when you use ParcelPal, all of your favourite stores and eateries in your neighbourhood deliver. This includes the super busy wine store downtown, the bakery in the Beltline, and the denim store in Inglewood.
Place your order
You can have anything delivered with ParcelPal’s newest “Get Anything” feature.
They really mean anything you want (except pets, people, and anything illegal, obviously). Let’s say there’s a pair of shoes you want to buy at Holt Renfrew, or makeup from Sephora or even a 6 pack of PBR; ParcelPal’s got you covered. So you can stay comfy and keep binge-watching This Is Us on Netflix while drinking your pumpkin spice latte in front of the fire while your stuff is being delivered.
When your order has been processed, a ParcelPal driver will deliver your order to you within one hour. And the best part is that you can see where that winter jacket is in real-time with their in-app tracking.
