Online Ordering FAQs

Can I order everything in the market online?
Almost! We add new items every day. Our system is updated daily to make sure it shows what is most likely at our store at the start of the day.

Who does my shopping?
Our Personal Shoppers will be doing your shopping. Our Personal Shoppers have been trained and have years of shopping for themselves and buying at other grocery stores. They will know how to choose the right fruits and vegetables to make sure you get the freshest product. They will then properly store your groceries before pickup or delivery.

Can I provide special instructions to the personal shopper filling my order?
Yes, you can! Notes for your Personal Shopper can be added towards the end of checkout.

Where is my order prepared?
Right in the market you’ve selected for pickup or delivery. If you have been to the market in person, there is a high chance that the personal shopper that is picking up your groceries is the same person that has answered your questions.

How do I view a product’s ingredients and nutritional information?
We won’t have all the nutritional facts available just yet, but we are slowly trying to put them up all online. If you have any questions, you can leave a comment or call our store for assistance.

How soon can I get my order?
We just need two hours’ notice before your preferred pickup time or the day before (midnight cutoff) for next-day delivery. We have a limited number of reservations available each day, so if your preferred time was previously booked by another customer, you can select a different day or time.

How far in advance can I place my order?
Up to seven days!

If an item is out of stock in the market, will it show up on the site?
Possibly. We do our best to update stock availability every day, but sometimes we would, unfortunately, run out. Make sure to ask for substitution and we will do our best to give you the best alternative!

How do I update my account information? (password, email, market,and payment,etc.)
Simply go to the “My Account” section, make your changes, and click “Update” at the bottom of the page to save them!

How do I save an order that I have not completed? 

If you’re logged in, the items in your cart will remain there until you check out or remove them. If you’re NOT logged in, though, your cart won’t be guaranteed to saved if you leave our site.

How do I switch my order from pickup to delivery (or vice versa)? On the first page of checkout, select the “Switch to Pick Up or Curbside Pickup” or “Switch to Delivery” option on the left-hand side of your screen.

Can I select a specific substitution for items in my cart? Yes! Navigate to the item in your cart and click “specific substitution” from the drop-down menu next to it. Next, browse “Search Substitutions” and “add” your next best choice.

I know you carry something in the market but I can’t find it online! Can I still add it to my order? Not yet! we do our best to ensure that the items we post online can be handled with care before it arrives to you. However, if you wish to request a certain item, we will do our best to add it to the cart.

Can I use my Points Card for my online order? Currently, our points card is not connected with our online store just yet. We are working on this as a future project and will hopefully bring even more savings to our customers!

Can I change the pickup or delivery date/time or add items to an order I’ve already placed? You can change the date/time or add items up to two hours before your initially scheduled pickup. For delivery orders, you would have until midnight the day before to edit your order. For example, if your original pickup time was 3-5pm, you must make changes by 12:59pm. Click the “Edit Existing Order” option in our site’s header, then click “Edit” next to the delivery or pick up date you’d like to change.

You can cancel orders up to two hours before your scheduled time for pickup or until midnight the day before scheduled delivery time.

Are there fees?
Yes, we do charge a flat rate fee for next day delivery orders and pick-up orders. 

Do you have weekly specials?
Not yet! We are working hard to have a greater selection of Weekly Specials. However, for the time being, we will be tagging products as “Assi Specials” that we think are priced very competitively.

What happens when the price changes the next day?
We will do our best to give the same price as the day that you ordered. If there is a price increase, we will do our best to either give you a substitution or hold off giving you the more expensive item. If we are not sure, we will contact you!

How does pickup work?
Come inside and ask one of our staff members that you’re here for an online pick-up. Place your order and select a day and time.  (Minimum $35 order required.)

How does delivery work?
Choose from available dates and times, add any personal notes and your groceries will be delivered to your front door. Just make sure you’re home when our driver arrives as we want to avoid leaving frozen or refrigerated goods unattended. (Minimum $65 order required for delivery.)

Can someone else pick up my online order?
Sure. They just need to have your order number.

Do you offer same-day pickup and delivery?

For example, if you’d like to pick up between 3-4 p.m., your order needs to be placed by 12:59 p.m. We have a limited amount of slots available per day. Unfortunately, we are still working on making same day delivery a possibility, but what we have is next day delivery!
