With Ontario going into lockdown for the next few weeks it looks like we’re going to be spending a LOT more time at home. This means a lot more of us will be looking to have things delivered to distract us and fill our days as we stay safe inside.
But just because you’re stuck inside doesn’t mean that you can’t support all of your favourite local businesses. The truth is that many of these businesses desperately need our support if they’re going to make it through all of these restrictions and lockdowns. Plus, London is full of incredible businesses offering delicious foods, high-quality products, and handmade delights. When you shop local, you’re helping out a fellow Londoner AND you’re getting high-quality items. It’s win-win.
We’ve compiled a list of 40 of London’s best local businesses that are offering delivery. The list is broken down into Food, Grocery, Drinks, and Fun/Home. Oh, and there is a bonus category where you can get all of those things AND more in one spot. Take a look at the 40 local businesses offering delivery in London.
Food delivery apps like Skip the Dishes and Uber Eats are convenient. But did you know that they take a huge chunk of change from the restaurants that you order from?

Instead, take a look at these local restaurants offering delivery themselves. This means that the money you spend is going directly to a local restaurant, paying for Londoners’ jobs! Even better, take the extra time to go pick it up yourself if possible.
