A pinemelon is a distant cousin of the modern watermelon. It’s a type of citron melon that grows naturally in the wild, yet is known for being especially hard to find. If you’re lucky enough to find it, you’re in for a real treat!
To us, the search for a pinemelon is similar to the experience of navigating the overwhelming landscape of grocery options. If you’re here, you’ve already found it—the easiest, most reliable way to shop for everything you need, week after week.
We’re currently planning to launch delivery to the Denver metro area in late 2021.
We’ll begin with delivering to the Denver metro area (and are still determining our exact geographic limits for launch). The best way to learn if Pinemelon.com has come to your neighborhood is to sign up for email updates on our Contact Us page!
Our buyers continually search for high-quality items that fit your everyday needs. We stock staples like avocados, pasta, local eggs and fresh butcher-quality proteins, while also sourcing unique and exciting brands that help keep things fresh in the kitchen. We prioritize local, natural, and organic foods, but never to the point of limiting your choice. You’ll also find a wide selection of household necessities like diapers, batteries and aluminum foil.
Absolutely! Every shopper will receive cash back at Pinemelon.com, and we’ll be offering added benefits to members of our “Friends” program—including priority delivery windows, special members-only discounts and no minimum for delivery.
No, we are a delivery-only grocery concept. By exclusively focusing on delivery, we are able streamline our operations and our costs, which helps us provide everyday value to our customers. It also means we can reduce the unnecessary food waste created by the eye-catching displays and overstocked shelves of traditional grocery stories.
At face value, we understand that logic. Yet we actually find that by grouping orders together by neighborhood, we are able to create delivery routes that are more efficient and sustainable for customers—think of it like carpooling to the grocery store!
Because we don’t have to decorate our warehouse with eye-catching displays, we naturally waste less product than a standard grocery store. We use customer data to optimize our sourcing, and if we do overbuy, we always work to find a sustainable solution, whether that be donations to a local food bank or commercial composting options.
As food nerds, we totally get it! Our team works hard to ensure that you get the same quality from our orders that you would from shopping in-person—plus benefits that you might not find at your local store. From helping you discover exciting local brands and offering cash back on every order, to eliminating the long lines (and impulse purchases!) of in-person shopping, we’re continually reimagining the grocery experience.
Whether it’s a trip to the museum, climbing a 14er, volunteering or simply taking a nap—we’ll let you decide how to enjoy your new life of leisure. 🙃
