How do you shop when physical isolation is the new normal? It’s certainly a transition if you’ve adopted the local habit of near-daily shopping. One solution is to transfer shopping online. Many of the following stores have both a physical presence as well as nationwide delivery systems, so you can stock up on pantry essentials and the occasional luxury without leaving home wherever you live.

Traveling to France is currently out of the question, so take an online trip to fine frozen foods manufacturer and retailer Picard to satiate your desire for food both Gallic and gourmet. Picard specializes in fresh frozen ingredients — mainly fruits and vegetables — as well as ready-to-eat meals, such as blanquette de veau (veal in white sauce stew) with rice and other time-saving sides and sauces. All the makings for a dinner party are here, with the store’s appetizers, French pastries and dessert items being especially popular. Convenience does not stump quality; Picard strictly limits the use of pesticides and maintains rigorous food preparation standards.
