Sam's Wholesale Club - Membership Required and well worth it
We found Sam's to be a convenient site to shop and the app is even easier.  Pay attention to items that are pick up "in Club" versus "ship from online".   They will note when items are out of stock in the store and online.  They were often out of paper products and pick-up deliveries were usually a couple days out, so plan ahead.  
You can pay online and they will text you when the order is ready.  Text Sam's when you arrive in the parking lot and then pull up to the Club Pick Up.  They bring your order out and you load it into your vehicle.    Note: if you buy spirits, you will need to pay in person.

Concierge Service is available from 7 - 9 am on Tues and Thurs for Seniors and those with sensitive health issues.  Pull up with a list and an associate will shop for you, bring your items to your vehicle and obtain payment.

Scratch Bakery
Need Bagels or bread?  Scratch Bakery in South Portland (207-799-0668) will take your order for curbside pick-up.  Pay online and schedule the pick time and then you will receive an emailed confirmation.  They are providing curbside on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Order several days in advance to reserve baked goods.  Pull up along side the business and associates will come out and ask for you name, then bring your order out...we suggest opening your trunk for zero contact. Cars may back up along Preble, but have no moves along very quickly.

Shaw's Supermarket
Shaw's offers home delivery once you sign up for membership.  We suggest filling a cart online and then checking back for delivery may take a few tries before you can schedule, so try early morning.

We will try to add other vendors to this list.  If you have personally tried other vendors, please e-mail me with your comments or recommendations and I will add them to the list.
