Gourmet Grocery Online gives back.
Dear Gourmet Grocery Online,
Thank you so much for providing these materials for my students. With them, we will be able to provide additional services for those students who need the most help with their reading. As a low income school, materials are difficult to purchase, these materials will allow us to make a difference in the education of many students. Thank you for helping us teach a child the basics of reading and ensuring a better future the that child.
Thank you for a way to send my "baby boy" a birthday dinner for his 1st year away from home. He is in his 1st year of college in St. Paul MN & was "thrilled that he didn't have to eat Ramen Noodles on his birthday" - this was the next best thing to being there to cook his birthday dinner that I could do. Thank you for providing this service. What a phenomenal idea! Wishing you the best of success. I've already shared your service with many folks. Keep Austin Unique!! Kind Regards, a thankful Mom
My sister called to say how "wowed" she and her friends were with their Christmas dinner gift. It is always scary to send food gifts. Usually the pretty pictures look much better than the delivered product. Your service provided everything that was ordered, and then some. Barb said it was the best prime rib she had ever eaten (and she lives in Colorado where they fatten the beef in Greeley), the side dishes were great and the carrot cake was the "best she had ever tasted". Not only that, but if I had sent her a restaurant certificate for the same amount that your service cost, she would not have been able to get a complete dinner and dessert for four people of such high quality for the same price. If I ever need to send a food gift again, I will definitely use your service. You are now on the top of my "favorites" list!
Thanks again for such a great gift.
I would like to tell you how wonderful the dinner was that I purchased from you. It was really excellent and I was pleasantly surprised. Would recommend your site to anyone.

Just wanted to let you know the order was received within 2 days.....my son absolutely loved the food!!! Both the chicken and steaks were wonderful, and the side dishes made a great meal. Thanks so much ... I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to friends, or to order from you again.
My grand daughter received one of the large cookie bouquets for her 13the birthday. She, her younger brother and her mom all said that the cookies were delicious, as well as very pretty, and the whole house smelled so good from the cookies. Thank you for making her day for her.

God bless you.
I just wanted to say that I used your service for the second time this week, and sent the Tilapia Fish Dinner to my parents. They just loved it! I sent them a dinner in May and they raved about that one also. But I can assure you they will be raving about the fish for a very long time. Thank you for offering such wonderful and tasty meals. I'll be back soon to order more gifts. This time I will be ordering for myself at the same time! Sincerely,
Just wanted you to know that the recipient of the lobster found them to be "the most delicious ever". And they loved the crab cakes and clam chowder....plus all the gadgets.
Wonderful Company to do business with

I would like to compliment Gourmet Grocery [Online] for its easy-to-use and attractive website and for its promptness in filling orders. I also like very much how easy you make it to track orders. I order a lot of things online, and quite often tracking info is not very good.
I'm sure I will be ordering again in the near future.
Twentynine Palms, CA
I just wanted to thank you for shipping my order out last night. I didn't notice the cut off time for ensuring overnight delivery until after I had already placed the order. When I looked at my confirmation and saw that I placed my order at 8:18 AM I was very worried that due to my error my parents wouldn't receive their gift until Monday.
I would also like to thank you very much for following up with my email and phone call so promptly yesterday. I have never used your services before, but if your customer service is any indication of the quality of your product, then I would imagine it too is out of this world.
I'm used to disappointments ordering online on short notice but was amazed how efficient and professional your service was. I ordered a wine basket that was delivered same day! Recipient was in tears with joy when it arrived and surprised her. Thanks again and a pat on the back to your customer sevice team.
The carrot cake I ordered for my friend's birthday was delivered on time and was fresh, moist, and delicious! Thank you so much!
Amazing - "a 120% HIT" according to my sister and Italian brother-in-law! Fresh, well presented, and well packaged even to Florida. They raved over each course in the Tuscan dinner for what amounted to an hour on the telephone. l can't thank you enough and I'll definitely be back.
I used your service for the first time this holiday season. Ordered a turkey and a ham for delivery to New Orleans area (Covington). Both arrived on time as I specified - and were terrific. My husband said the turkey was the best turkey he had ever had - hands down! I agree. Your service and product quality are terrific. Thank you for helping make our New Orleans Christmas dinner successful.

This past week I sent my parents the Provencial [Parisian] 4 course for my father's birthday & their anniversary. Due to a medical issue, my father can no longer go out for lengthy meals at noisy restaurants or any other overstimulating activity. This is quite sad for me because my family has always enjoyed dining out fine restaurants, especially for special occasions. After much research I thought this gift would be a nice way for them to enjoy a fine meal and I chose your site because of its' variety and excellent, comprehensive meal choices. I also felt that the cost was fair, especially on a limited budget. Of course I was a little skeptical that perhaps I was sending them some cardboard fish and a rubber chicken wrapped in a plastic bag, but I like to take chances! When the package arrived I called my parents right away (I almost had my UPS tracking number memorized by that time!!) and they were SO THRILLED!!! Having just eaten a large, late day lunch they decided to save it until the following day to "truly enjoy the whole meal." My parents are both European and have high standards when it comes to the quality of food and presentation. My mom is also a fabulous cook. Well, not only did they LOVE the very thought of such a gift, but the prentation really impressed them, and me. I had no idea they would receive a real, embroidered table cloth and napkins. The faux leather "box" was another great touch, as was the menu card. The next day I called them right away after work to ask how the meal was and again they were just floored and so happy! My dad said the entire concept was super and the peope who prepared the food were "these people are real cooks." He also said "we are enjoying this gift 3 times, once when it arrived, today when we ate and tomorrow when we finish the cheese cake." Thank you so much for your high standards for quality inside and out. Can't wait to have a reason to order again.

I just had to email you and let you know how much I appreciate the apo, gifts to soldiers part of the website. THANKS! Soldiers like myself need all the encouragement we can get and I couldn't help but notice the time and attention you put into those gifts. Birthdays and holidays just aren't the same here in Iraq and you've made it possible to make soldiers feel special on those days again. It is companies like yours that make our deployments endurable.
My friend got the basket and he & his grieving famliy smiled for a brief moment.....I couldn't have made that happen without your service. Thank you for the follow-up yesterday.
J. McCarthy of my staff will be in contact over the next few days to see what you could customize for a special customer of ours.
I just want to thank you for the wonderful customer service you've displayed in the last few days. I appreciate the follow-up, communication and professional service I received.
