Giant Food Rolls Out Grocery Pick-Up Service In The US
Ahold Delhaize has announced that its Giant Food banner has introduced a grocery pick up service, Giant Pickup, for online orders.
The service, presently available in two stores, will be rolled out to 100 stores in Washington D.C., Maryland, Virginia and Delaware by the end of the year.
It offers customers the option to pick up groceries on the same day or the next day at a time and place of their choosing.
'A Great Option'
The president of Giant Food, Gordon Reid, added, "Our new Giant Pickup service is a great option for busy shoppers who can plan ahead and pick up all their groceries without ever leaving the car.
"Whether on the way home from work, heading to a summer BBQ or just getting the weekly grocery shopping done all that much faster, this really is all about giving our shoppers tools to let them shop however they prefer," he explained.
Recently, Stop & Shop launched a same-day pick-up service for online orders.
It also plans to launch around 175 'click-and-collect' locations by the end of the year.
By the end of 2019, Ahold Delhaize aims to expand online pick-up services to more than 600 stores in the US.
