Phone or fax your order to your closest store before 12 p.m. and we will deliver to your door between 3 - 5 p.m. the same day (shopping fees apply).
The Seniors Advisory Council, operating from the Ladysmith Resources Centre, has been offering a home delivery service for customers since January 1999.
Volunteers are on duty every Wednesday between 8:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. to take phone orders. Other volunteers shop for the groceries and prepare them for delivery. The 49th Parallel Grocery delivers the orders to customers in the "245" phone prefix free of charge on these two days. Although there is a Fuel charge that applies to this service for $2.00 (+GST).
If you would like more information, or if you would like to volunteer your time, please call the Seniors Information Centre at (250) 245-0413 or (250) 245-3079 or the 49th Parallel Office at (250) 245-3221.

We deliver 6 days a week, Monday through Saturday
Parallel Grocery stores are owned and operated by Wayne and Harmina Richmond.
The Richmond’s purchased the 49th Parallel Grocery store in Ladysmith in August
of 1977. At that time, "the 49th" had been in operation for almost 40
years and in a 3000 square foot building.
In 1979, the 49th in Chemainus became part of the group. In 1989, a new
store in Ladysmith was constructed next door to the old store and the old one
was taken down. In September 1997, a
store in Cedar, B.C. was opened. The Cedar store is a little larger than the
Ladysmith store and was designed with the local community in mind. Our Duncan
location was added in 2007. The Ladysmith store was expanded again in 2010 to a
total size of 20,000 square feet. Finally in October of 2013, we opened our new
store in Chemainus bringing the total employee compliment to over 230. We thank
our communities for your ongoing support. We're here to serve you.
