Giant Food, a grocery chain headquartered in Landover, Maryland, has launched Giant Pickup, which will allow customers to place their grocery orders online and pick them up at a local store without ever leaving their cars.
Giant Pickup began on July 1 and will be available at 100 stores in Washington, D.C., Maryland, Virginia and Delaware by the end of the year.
Customers now have another option to suit their busy schedules, from shopping in-store to pickup and home delivery. Shoppers can choose a pickup window based on their schedules, opting for same-day pickup in as little as four hours or next-day service. Customers can order at GiantFood.com and an associate will hand-select, pack and load orders into customers’ cars.
“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 barbecue 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,” said Gordon Reid, president. “We’re proud to offer this service to help customers save time so they can get back to what matters most.”
Thousands of items are available at everyday store prices, including favorite local brands and organic selections. Pickup also accepts digital coupons that can be loaded and redeemed online, allowing customers to save money as they save time well as time. Pickup has the same quality and freshness guarantee as stores. If an item falls short in any way, the store will replace it and refund the customer’s money.
Same-day Giant Pickup is available on $30 minimum orders with a $2.95 fee. Giant is also offering free pickup on the first order for new customers.
Giant Food operates 164 supermarkets in Virginia, Maryland, Delaware and the District of Columbia. Giant Food employs approximately 20,000 associates.
