Merging online and in-store shopping, Meijer has introduced a program that allows shoppers to place an order on Meijer.com and have the merchandise shipped—at no cost—directly to their local Meijer store for pickup.
The online program, called “Order-to-Store,” will include thousands of items found on ordertostore.meijer.com, including furniture and home products, sporting goods, kitchen appliances, garden and outdoor items, toys, and health & beauty items.
The online program allows shoppers to designate which Meijer store they would like to use as their pick-up location.
Once the order is received by the store, the customer will receive email notification that their items are ready for pick-up. If the customer needs to return an item, they can bring it back to their local Meijer.
Rick Keyes, EVP of supply chain operations and e-commerce for the Grand Rapids, Mich.-based retailer, said, “Not only are we eliminating shipping costs, we’re also enabling shoppers to return the items to their local stores. This is a money- and time-saving program that allows even more customers to take advantage of the great offerings we have at Meijer.com.”
The program accepts online coupons and guarantees delivery within 5-7 days of the order (though most orders are received within three days). Customers pay for their orders online prior to picking them up at their local Meijer store.
