Great idea but...Wait times for Superstore are at least a week!! Walmart doesn't offer everything for pickup at the store.
Just had a look and demand does look to be quite high but as of right now on the delivery side of things there are time slots avail on Tuesday for SS. Friday morning for pickup.
On a quick look at the online options this morning... obviously a fluid thing that changes from hour-to-hour I'm sure, but: -Walmart pickup has times open starting Thursday -Superstore has some slots later on Friday -Instacart (so any of Walmart, Superstore, SDM, MM Meats) is booking into Wednesday -Don't forget about phone-based deliveries from Co-op and Sobeys West. At last chat I had with either store they were doing same-day delivery as long as orders were called in before cutoff time.
Here's one that I think a lot of folks would want to know about.. Two Farm Kids is doing free delivery within Brandon on orders of $75 or more along with curbside pickup (no minimum). Online and phone-in orders available. The store itself is also open normal hours with some bins (scoop-based) temporarily set as staff service only and their gravity bins disinfected regularly. Gloves and hand sanitizers are available.
Also not grocery, but Christies is delivering in-town as per normal and also offering curbside pickup.
Just had a chat with Chris from Dash. They are in fact offering contactless delivery. When you get to the point of checking out with your order you have the option to pick contactless delivery and then be more specific (leave at the door, ring bell, etc). When your driver gets within 100m you'll get a text that they're getting close. If your delivery is contactless, after the driver makes the delivery you'll get another text from them and they'll watch to make sure you pick up the order. A few other options with Dash... - they've temporarily eliminated cash as a payment method - also offer takeout as an option - all drivers have hand wipes and sanitizer

On the topic of grocery delivery, I see that as of this morning Instacart is actually offering same-day delivery today (Wednesday) within 5 hours. Superstore has pickup slots beginning Sunday. Walmart appears to have now opened pickup up to 4 days in advance with plenty of slots for Saturday as of the time that I post this.
Update: Sobeys West to keep up with demand has been able to open up delivery to 6 days per week (Mon-Sat) thanks to use of a vehicle from Fowler Nissan from across the street. Pretty cool example of neighbours working together to help out:

One more grocery delivery or pickup option... starting Monday Freshii is doing Freshii Essentials Grocery bundles. Info on what they're offering is at https://www.freshii.com/ca/en-ca/essentials They're starting in Brandon on Monday and initially you'd call the store at 204-725-4124. You can pre-order for Monday today and then starting Monday you can order for any day going forward. For delivery orders, the delivery fee portion will be no charge this week and then will be $3 beginning the week after. Ordering is not yet avail in their app but they are hoping to have that added in the days ahead too.
This is separate from the free delivery they've been offering for the regular meal options that Freshii would normally offer.. that offer has been one of the better options you'll find to get a quick meal during this!
