Stop & Shop introduces same-day online pickup

Stop & Shop has launched same-day online pickup for Peapod by Stop & Shop orders at select stores in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut and New York. The new offering provides customers with a faster and more convenient way to shop with pick-up available in as little as four hours. Customers can place an order on Peapod.com, head to their local store, and have a Stop & Shop associate load their groceries right into their car. The new service gives customers access to an even wider selection of grocery items online, including fresh items like pre-cut fruit, prepared foods and even entertaining trays that are available at their local store.stop

“As we continue to improve the omnichannel experience for our customers, we plan to roll out 175 of these ‘click-and-collect’ locations by the end of the year,” said Stop & Shop President Mark McGowan. “We’re excited to offer our customers the convenience of shopping online for the all the products available at their local store, which they can now pick-up in just a few hours.”

To use the new service, customers can visit www.peapod.com and select “Pick-up” at their preferred store. Customers then head to their local store at their chosen pick-up time. Each store has around four to six designated “Grocery Pick-up” parking spots where customers can park, then call a phone number to let the store team know they have arrived. Stop & Shop team members will then deliver customers’ groceries right to their car. The same-day online pickup service costs $2.95 and new pickup customers can receive the service free for 90 days.
