At the moment, Canberran’s need to band together and minimise going out to help our community come out of this pandemic quicker, which unfortunately means that it’s not as easy as just popping down the markets to grab a meal or some snack. So The Barton Grocer have flipped the tables a bit and decided that until this passes, they’re going to bring hampers to you!

Even with the state of affairs at the moment, I think we can all agree, that having a movie night without snacks, or a soggy fridge surprise lunch is an absolute catastrophe and only making staying inside more miserable! So together with The Barton Grocer, Mix106.3 are becoming your Hamper Helpers!

Over the week we will have several different social posts showcasing the different Hampers available at The Barton Grocer. To enter, followers simply have to tag their friends to go in the draw to win a hamper! The Mix 106.3 team will then select winners at random.

The Grocer itself has over 8,000 products so this was a way to try and group some favourite products and make it easier for the customer. It is also a perfect way to send someone a care package during this time of isolation. There are multiple offerings now for fresh fruit and vegetable boxes as well as toilet paper and other pantry essentials. They have created a couple of specialty boxes like the “Isolation Box” and the “Sanitisation Box” that present some uniqueness and a little humour. Barton Grocer hampers are also available to purchase online or over the phone, as well as other regular supermarket items. They offer same day delivery Monday to Friday and non-contact pick up through the newly established Drive Thru service. The Drive Thru can also be utilised without pre-ordering, it is open Monday to Friday 8am – 4pm.

The Barton Grocer is a small family owned convenience store that opened their doors in August 2016 and since then has become a popular hot spot for lunch, coffee, flowers and the go-to groceries items on your way home. The Barton Grocer will remain open during the COVID-19 isolation period and is adhering to social distancing and hygiene enforcements.
