Personal Shopping at Halsted

Personal Shopping

At Halsted, we take personal shopping personally. Rest assured that we will follow the specifics of your list and/or will help you choose the best product based on your needs. All of our personal shoppers are Whole Foods Market team members and we will be shopping in the same regard as when we shop for ourselves.


Getting Started

Email us at and let us know you are interested in having a personal shopper. In your email, please provide the following:

  • Your name
  • Your address
  • Your phone number.
  • If you prefer organic when available
  • If you prefer 365 products (our house brand that is typically more cost effective and is sourced to avoid GMOs) when available?

You can also include your list. When doing so, please remember to include the following information for each item:

  • Brand (unless 365 is preferred)
  • Product (i.e. can of black beans)
  • Quantity (i.e. each/weight)

We will call you to confirm your order and form of payment.



Here is the pricing:

  • Ten items or fewer is $9.99 + the cost of groceries + tax + delivery fee (if applicable)
  • Eleven items or more is $14.99 + the cost of groceries + tax + delivery fee (if applicable).


We use E.L.S. Delivery Service, Inc. for our delivery service. Prices start at $7.99 but vary depending on delivery zone and the amount of groceries. We will be able to give you more information when you call. If you’d like to contact E.L.S. directly, they can be reached at (773) 588-0293 or emailed at


Gift Basket Options

Our personal shoppers can also make you a custom gift basket. You can either let us know exactly what products you want to include in the basket or you can let us know how much you want to spend and the theme or general idea of the basket (I.E. family snack basket or a basket containing wine, 2 types of cheese, crackers, etc). Regular personal shopping fees apply, and there will be a $5 surcharge for the materials. Please call the store for further details.
