Giant Food, a greater Washington, D.C. regional grocery chain, has launched Ship2Me marketplace within GiantFood.com, adding tens of thousands of new items that expands Giant’s assortment beyond traditional grocery.
Featuring categories complementary to grocery, Ship2Me will offer products traditionally not found in store and include expansions into health and beauty, home décor, seasonal items, kitchen and dining, outdoor, pet and premium pantry items. Giant customers throughout Washington, D.C., Maryland, Virginia and Delaware can find Ship2Me offerings as they browse the integrated shopping experience online. They can add items from the marketplace to their cart alongside any Giant Pickup or Giant Delivers products for one seamless checkout.
“Online grocery demand continues to grow, and we are constantly working to increase our capabilities and offerings to best serve the communities we operate in,” said Ira Kress, president of Giant Food. “We are thrilled to be the first brand under the Ahold Delhaize USA family to be launching Ship2Me and bringing this innovative and expansive marketplace to our customers.”
Giant’s online offerings have exploded in popularity the past 12 months, with more than three million online orders fulfilled, giving the grocer an opportunity to bring even more options to busy consumers.
Customers can filter through categories within the integrated experience to view items offered by both Giant and Ship2Me for one-stop shopping. Items purchased via Ship2Me are always shipped directly to Giant customers. There is no order minimum for customers purchasing only Ship2Me items and ground shipping is always free on any order.
In the coming months, the number of vendors and products available through Ship2Me will continue to expand, allowing shoppers the chance to pair their grocery shopping with an array of other products that complement how they normally shop with Giant.
Giant Flexible Rewards customers can also earn loyalty points on Ship2Me item purchases, which can be redeemed for grocery savings with Giant or gas savings through Giant’s Fuel Rewards program.
