This service is available at more than 2,000 locations, including Albertsons, Safeway, Vons, Jewel-Osco, Shaw’s, ACME and Tom Thumb banner stores. 

“Shoppers today want fast pickup and delivery, and Albertsons is meeting this expectation with our new Flash service,” said Stephen Menaquale, SVP, e-commerce and fulfillment.

“Whether you’re missing a key ingredient for tonight’s dinner or need a healthy snack for your kid’s lunchbox, families can turn to Albertsons to quickly replenish their food and household staples.”

Flash pickup and delivery is available for customers through its websites and mobile apps that mirror in-store pricing.

All other customers can utilize Flash pickup for $3.95 per order or Flash delivery for $11.95 per order.

Shoppers can select up to 35 items for Flash pickup or delivery. When choosing Flash delivery, the order will be delivered within a 30-50-minute window. When selecting Flash pickup, customers can pick up their groceries at their local store in 30 minutes or less.

Albertsons Companies is a food and drug retailer operating 2,272 retail stores with 1,726 pharmacies, 401 associated fuel centers, 22 dedicated distribution centers and 19 manufacturing facilities.
