We updated this page on Tuesday, September 8 Please note, we sometimes get conflicting information from store employees about their available services and accommodations for seniors. In addition, many local stores and business have made several changes to their hours and offerings during the past few months. And on top of that, their websites don’t always keep up with their latest changes. So for all these reasons we advise you to call the store or business to check with them if you wish to use their posted services.
If you have a tip or update for us, please let us know. Also tell us about your experience with any of the special senior services. We are updating information here as we receive it. You can use our simple Contact form to reach us — open the Contact form here.

TJ’s does not offer home delivery, but if you are uncomfortable going into the store, they will shop for you — drive to the store and call from the parking lot. An employee will come to your car, take your written list and debit/credit card, and shop for you. They process your payment and bring your items and receipt back out to your car. Very nice service.
We (Jacci and Jay) continue to have great experiences with TJ’s. If you do not want to go into the store, they ask that you drive to the store parking lot first, then call them. A worker comes out to your car, takes your written list, and shops for you. They process your payment and bring the items and the receipt out to you. Friendly, helpful folks and we appreciate the accommodations they’re making. Thank you TJ’s!
