While we've been waiting patiently to get back to Montreal stores during the mandatory shutdowns (and making many, many online wishlists), the stores have also been patiently waiting to welcome us back. Even though things have yet to get back to somewhat normal, we're adapting. And, you can now order from your favourite stores and receive your package on the same day.\nYep, you read that right.\nAnd it's all thanks to Genie, a Montreal-based on-demand company that acts as a digital personal assistant, and its #geniecentreville campaign, which is running from now until September 30.\nOn the company's LinkedIn, it says "you can request anything you want by chat. Really. If it's legal, we'll make it happen."\nTo kick off the campaign, the company is offering a week of free delivery.\nThe company is partnering with Société de développement commercial (SDC)/Destination Centre-Ville (DCV), an economic development company here in Montreal, who works with 5,000 retailers and restaurants.\nSo, all of these stores and restos are now part of the spots where Genie will pick up your order for you.\nIf there's anything that the pandemic has taught us about the way we shop, it's that online shopping is so convenient and that fast delivery is extremely important. Right?\nSome conditions do apply, though.\nView this post on Instagram 👉Utilises #Geniecentreville du 15 au 21 juin pour profiter des livraisons gratuites pour toute commande passée du centre-ville. 👉 Use #Geniecentreville from June 15th to 21st to enjoy free deliveries from downtown Montreal. #samedaydelivery #delivery #montreal #Geniecentreville #geniemtl A post shared by Genie (@geniemontreal) on Jun 14, 2020 at 7:50pm PDT\nThe product must be from the downtown perimeter and in the delivery zone, which includes 13 neighbourhoods.\nBeyond the delivery zone, it's an extra $1/kilometre, which is still pretty cheap, if you ask me.\nFrom now until June 21, all you have to do is use the promo code "geniecentreville" to get free delivery in four hours.\nView this post on Instagram 📍Free same day delivery from June 15th to 21st if you are in the green zone.

You don't even need to create an account.\nSo go ahead, order those clothes you've been looking at since March.\nOr ask for Genie to pick up that charger from Best Buy because you're not ready to head back out to Sainte-Catherine.\nPlus you'll be helping local businesses and bringing Montreal back in all of its shopping glory.\nA win-win!
