    You could pay a local, reliable teenager (who has a car) to go to the store, buy milk, and deliver it to you. You'd probably only need him to do it a couple times a week.

    I would be careful about having employees picking up goods for you. If they get in an accident you are screwed. I used to have a coffee shop next to an Albertsons(shows you it was a LONG time ago.) The dairy manager hated me. I would go in and buy all of his stock. He confronted me once and said you can't buy all of my milk...it doesn't leave any for my customers. Your customers? I laughed and said I'm your best customer!!

    That's a good idea! I will keep that in mind! Thank you.

    I've literally never seen an Albertsons, haha. (But then, I grew up in Alaska, so there's a lot of stores I've never seen.... HA)

    try to find a supplier online that is nearby, and see if they deliver.
