Fifteentwenty is a grocery delivery service that’s begun operating out of some storefronts on the Upper West Side that says it delivers in 15-20 minutes. They’ve opened in a vacant pet store on 66th Street between West End Avenue and Riverside Boulevard, and have a sign in the former Saffron space on Columbus Avenue and 75th Street, our tipster Daniel tells us. (We hear from another person that the Saffron image is just an ad, not a new location.) The company delivers by e-bike and their Instagram says they’ll refund the order if they’re a minute late. Check out their Instagram here.
