While an ever-expanding list of Amazon prime customers are privy to Whole Foods sent straight to their homes, Trader Joe’s delivery is sadly going the way of the dinosaurs.

If you’re saying, “What? Trader Joe’s delivers? How did I not know about this?” you aren’t alone. TJs customers who live anywhere other than NYC probably never knew about this magical perk. After all, carting home bags of totally tasty Trader Joe’s fare on the subway isn’t exactly easy.

For the past decade metropolitan New York City customers have had a home delivery option. But now the grocery retailer is finding that the program isn’t cost-sustainable. According to TJs rep Kenya Friend-Daniel, in a statement to Business Insider, “Instead of passing along unsustainable cost increases to our customers, removing delivery will allow us to continue offering outstanding values — quality products for great everyday prices, and to make better use of valuable space in our stores.”

Unlike other large grocery and retail chains, Trader Joe’s does not (and doesn’t plan to) participate in third-party delivery services. Sorry NYC customers, as of Mar. 1 your deliver glory days are over.
