    I would probably use again

    Decided to try Voila as I got a voucher discount code. It’s easy to sign up and the website is easy to navigate and find what’s on sale. I added items from all over including bakery, and frozen depts. I was able to get a pick up time on the same day as I ordered at a time that is convenient.
    Received an email update that there were some items not in stock so was not charged for them.
    Pick up was easy, just pull into designated voila spot and call the number. It took over 10mins of waiting to get my groceries, and I was the only one there. The order was correct, nothing missing. Some of the items were expiring sooner than I would have liked, like the bagels.

    Great service

    I used the Sobeys Voila service for the first time and was very impressed with the whole experience! Ordering was easy on the app and I was kept informed of any changes or substitutions in my order.,,I even got extra large eggs for the same price as large as they were out of stock! I will definitely be using this again!

    A painless way to shop for groceries.

    It was a complete pleasure to just pick up my groceries without ever walking in the store. Excellent now that Covid is a problem. Will use again in the future.

    Good but don’t really need it

    It was a nice process but I’d rather go inside and choose my own groceries, but it wasn’t too bad at all. I would recommend to some friends that like this method better.

    Ended up a great experience

    I was so excited to go pick up my order and when I followed the instructions once I got there a guy came out told me he doesn’t have any order information for me. I told him I put in all my information and credit card info in and it said my order was placed and he said he would go check on it. He came back apologizing saying he sees an order but it didn’t go through for some reason and was an error and said there was nothing he could do for me today but he will help me place an order for tomorrow. I said I would think about it as it was a far drive for me. I thought about it and I ended up placing my order for the next day and this time my order worked and it was a really nice and an easy experience. I was really happy with the fresh fruit that was chosen for me! In the end I was happy with my purchase and the convenience of it!

    A great option for busy families

    I have been waiting for Voila to start at my local Safeway and I was so excited to be invited to review the service. I’ve had an extremely busy December and very last minute needed some groceries and thanks to Voila I was able to schedule a pick up the night before, pick what I needed online, and around my own schedule and not need to enter the store. When I arrived to pick up my order I texted and had a response almost immediately and someone came out in five minutes, and apologized for the wait which kind of made me chuckle given that it had only been a few minutes. I had ordered meat and they took it out of a bag to show me and ask if it met my expectations before packaging it away, I found that to be some next level service in comparison to many other online shopping options where you don’t always get a say in the products that end up in your cart. One thing I did notice however is that the price that I was charged for this meat was actually higher than the price that it was in the store and then a new sticker had been put on the front of the package, that was a bit of a put off for me and if I am on a tight budget that is some thing that I may pay attention to in the future as a few dollars can make or break some families every week. Overall this is a great service for families that don’t want to have to go into the grocery store, who are looking to curb impulse shopping, or just prefer to have someone do their shopping for them and bring it out. Overall I would absolutely recommend the service again and I’m likely to use it at my own Safeway‘s in the future.

    Fantastic Customer Service

    I was offered a $25 off $100 discount code for trying out Voilà.

    Using the website was easy and quick. I was also able to pick a day and time that suited me best.

    When I picked up my groceries I was informed that they had made some substitutions, which I was fine with. It wasn’t until I got home that I realized that some items had not been substituted but rather omitted from my order.

    This brought my total amount to under $100 and my $25 discount code was taken off my bill.

    I called the 1-800 number and spoke to Andrea, who is wonderful. She was pleasant to talk to and rectified my problem very quickly; I was refunded the $25.

    Overall I was very happy with the service I received from Voilà and I would use it again.

    Simplify your Shopping

    Disclosure: I received a discount off my order in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are 100% mine.

    Sobey’s has introduced a new shopping experience for me “Voilà By Sobeys Curbside Pickup”. Pre-pandemic I would not have considered ordering my groceries online, but the pandemic has changed everything, including how I shop.

    The first step is to create a free account on the Voilà by Sobey’s website. From there you begin your shopping experience. You will need to select your preferred location and Book a time for pick-up. There is a small service fee for the earlier times during the day and the times between 7:00-9:00 are free. The time slots are set for 1 hour times slots. I like that there is a window of time in case I am delayed at one of the children’s activities. There is a time limit to place your order so be sure either create a list, or complete your orders in time.

    There are a few options to make your shopping experience easier. You can make a list and add to it throughout the week and place your order from it when you are ready. There is also an option to add an item to your favourites and quickly identify the items you purchase week to week. If you have an item added to your Favourites it will also show you when you last purchased the item.

    The search feature isn’t as simple as I feel it should be. For instance, when I was looking for ground turkey the day I placed my order none appeared in the results, even though I knew they had some in stock as I went in to compare prices earlier that day. Today when I searched for the same item, using the same key words, it showed up in the results. There are also categories on the side to search as well as a the ability to filter items.

    Product sale prices are reflected in the search results, although it appears that some deals are missing. Again, back to the ground turkey, in store if I purchase 2 the price is $5.00 but regardless of how many I purchase online the price remains at $6.00. Perhaps the price will change after the checkout process is completed.

    Placing the order was easy, we simply followed the steps on the checkout. We were able to add our discount code during the process and apply it to our order. Your total isn’t finalized until the store ‘picks’ your order as produce items (and perhaps others) could possibly be different than estimated. We received an email notification when our items were picked.

    We had to contact customer service and it was very prompt and helpful and quickly corrected our problem.

    Pick-up was easy, although initially we went to the wrong spot. The groceries were neatly packed in brown bags.

    Overall, I am satisfied with the process. It will be useful if there are restrictions set in place again because of the pandemic, but for my family we will most likely continue shopping in store as we like to choose our own produce and meat products. For someone who is shopping for someone else or struggles going into stores “Voilà By Sobeys” would be an excellent option.

    Convenient and fast

    Grateful to have this service provided at Sobeys now, as it's the closest grocery store to my home. I would drive further away for the convenience of curbside pickup but now I won't have to!
