The primary benefit is convenience, which can be different for everyone. Families with small children like the service because it gives them more time to spend together doing other things. Shoppers living in foreign like the fact that they don't have to ship barrels to their loved ones back home - especially the hassle & expense involved at customs. Generally, shoppers enjoy ordering groceries from the privacy of their home, any time of day or night, and having it delivered to their loved ones fresh to their door from a friendly driver.
On the Packabarrel.com homepage, enter or select "recipient/business location" and you will be presented with a list of participating merchants (if available).
