These service promises are part of Giant/Martin’s ongoing focus on “helping customers save money, save time and eat well” and includes improved customer service at both the deli counter and checkout lines.
New service promises include:
- Speedy checkout guarantee: If there are four or more separate customers in each available checkout line at any time, the customer fourth in line will get their grocery order for free. (A customer is considered fourth in line if there are three other customers in every checkout lane with a cashier.)
- Deli sliced the way you want: When shopping at the deli, customers are offered the first slice of their deli order to check and/or taste. If not, they receive that ordered item for free.
