A new online service allows you to juggle your busy schedule, and keep your pantry stocked without having to go grocery shopping.

"We took our first orders last night and we're getting ready to go on our first delivery today," said Rob Marsh with RPCS, Inc.

Food Pyramid's personal shopping and delivery service began on Wednesday at MyPyramidOnline.com.  With a click of your mouse, your groceries are on their way.

"No minimum order.  It's $5 to order online and $5 if you want to pick it up at any of the six locations, and $10 for delivery," said Rob Marsh with RPCS, Inc.

The service is ideal for e-savvy shoppers looking to save extra time and gas money. And, it appeals to a wide range of customers.

"I don't know if there is an average customer it varies from the college student that's busy and cramming to the nursing homes and the day cares. That's been our biggest surprise," said Rob Marsh with RPCS, Inc.

Orders are accepted 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 

The delivery trips are made twice daily, Monday through Friday. You can even have your prescriptions delivered.

"I can get the very same thing and I don't have to go do it. It's very time saving. I don't have to spend my time in the grocery store, I don't like to go. It will be a while before you ever see me in a grocery store again," said e-shopper Vanetta Michael of Tulsa.

Deliveries are made in Tulsa, Jenks and Broken Arrow.  Click here to see a map of Food Pyramid locations.

The Reasor's service is available by pickup only, with no minimum order for $5 Monday through Friday.
