I've never heard either one of those. You'd do better to use Clive's suggestions.

Don't you ever "go grocery shopping" or "do the grocery shopping"?

teal lime"go grocery shopping"

Yes.

teal lime"do the grocery shopping"

Yes, I've heard this. I don't think I say it, though.

I think most of the time, speaking informally, I just say, "I've got to get some groceries", or I let context supply the idea of 'groceries' and 'supermarket' and just say "I've got to stop on my way home and get something to eat for dinner tonight".
