Lettuce Carry is a brand new privately owned online grocery store operating out of Pineville, NC. You won’t find quite as many products as at your local Harris Teeter or Bi-Lo, but they do have a nice selection of items, over 10,000, including local and organic choices for meat and produce, household items, and frozen foods. They also offer beer and wine but don’t deliver these products to the South Carolina Region.
Lettuce Carry operates out of a warehouse in Pineville near Westinghouse Blvd and they are able to use I-77 and 485 for easy access to a good portion of Charlotte and Northern York County. Low overhead enables them to offer prices 6-8% off of regular store prices. Next day delivery is free on orders of $25 and over. All you need to do is pick a 2-hour window for delivery and have someone at home to sign for the groceries. Teenage kids I have found come in handy for this. Plus you can then get them to put the groceries away too, further saving time.
Expedited delivery (within 2 hours) is available for a $10 fee. No minimum required.
You may find that Lettuce Carry doesn’t carry all of your favorite brands and products, but for something that saves me the time and energy of making a trip to the store, I can be a little flexible regarding the brands of products I use. They are also good about customer input and aim to please so if there’s a product you’d like to see them carry, chances are good they’ll make every effort to add it to their inventory.
Another great thing about Lettuce Carry- No More Impulse Buys. Plus they bring the groceries all the way to your door. No more unloading groceries from the car.
Currently Lettuce carry does not accept coupons or put items on sale. Take a look through their website and you will find the vast majority of items are very competitively priced.

Below is a nice, quick easy recipe for lasagna cooked in a skillet that I made completely with groceries from my Lettuce Carry order last week. This recipe is so much easier than cooking a layered lasagna in the oven, but it’s just as tasty. It’s so simple, I’m thinking of teaching my kids how to make it.
Bow Tie Lasagna
- 1 pound ground chuck
- 1 box bow tie noodles
- 3 cups spaghetti sauce
- 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoons Italian Seasoning
- 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella
- 1/2 cup Sour Cream
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- Brown ground beef in a large nonstick skillet. Use a wooden spoon to crumble the beef while it cooks. Once it is browned, drain off most of the grease. Season with 1/4 teaspoon salt.
- Cook pasta according to package directions.
- Add pasta, spaghetti sauce, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, mozzarella, Sour CReam, and black pepper to skillet. Stir to combine and heat over low heat for about 5 minutes to melt the cheese.
Yield: 6-8 servings
