All of us in Slovakia are being really responsible and staying home. We are proud of all of you who are limiting their trips to shops to get your essentials, who are practicing social distancing and wear face masks with pride. ☺ If you would like to limit your contact with people to the minimum and prefer to have your groceries, items for home repairments or essentials from drug stores delivered to your home, we’ve got your back. Here is a list of stores that adapted to the situation real fast and will deliver most of your heart and family desires during these challenging times.
1. FACE MASKS
Let’s start with the most important thing these days – Face masks. If you didn’t get one or you are not all that skilled to fashion one at home, there are two vending machines in Bratislava, where you can purchase a face mask for a very reasonable price. They are located at Trnavské Mýto (2,90 €) in the underpass and at bus station Nivy (3,50 €) . Keep safe and get a face mask for you and your family. ☺ Unfortunately, these face masks can’t be delivered home. But you can buy quality face masks online.
2. GROCERIES & ESSENTIALS
Malina has launched their eshop couple of days ago and offers two options for online shoppers – either you can have your groceries delivered to your home or you can click & collect. If you choose the click& collect option, there are several sites where you can pick up your online delivery, the next day after you place the order. If you would like to have your groceries delivered to your home, they promise at the moment to have it delivered within 2 business days tops. Home delivery is free within Bratislava for all purchases above 50 euro or 5 euro per delivery for orders that are less than 50 euro.
The whole eshop is in Slovak, however, we recommend you to try and use Google Chrome browser and translate the page.

Edelia is an online grocery store that offers a wide range of products for a household – groceries, items to keep your household clean or things for your pet.

Tesco has a very sophisticated online store, where you’ll find almost everything. You can change your shopping list even the day before delivery and they have a wide range of products. You can either choose delivery to home or click & collect option by choosing the closest Tesco to your home. However, Tesco is currently facing a huge rise in online orders around the whole country, meaning you won’t be able to get your order delivered probably within the next few weeks. But don’t be discouraged yet. Now is a good time to plan ahead and create your shopping list, add to it as times goes and be sure that when you are running out of your essentials, Tesco will be delivering you new supplies. If you can get a delivery date, make sure to book it and keep on adding to the shopping list as the time goes. Their delivery prices are very reasonable and the service is top-notch. We are speaking from personal experience.:) And the best news is, being it Tesco, their whole page is also translated to English.

To lower the carbon footprint, it might be a good idea to do a bigger shopping, so the delivery car is coming all loaded to your address. Remember that as all food stores, even Gazdovia might face some challenges with higher demand, therefore the delivery might take a bit longer than usual.
