The service is called “Pickup,” and customers can select a time to pick up their order with at least four hours notice. Orders must be picked up at one of the designated PIickup parking spaces, where a Kroger associated will help load items into the customer’s vehicle.
“Many of our Tennessee customers have told us that Pickup positively changed their grocery shopping experience, which is why we’re so excited to give our Sunset Drive customers the chance to complete their shopping online,” Allison McGee, corporate affairs manager for Kroger Mid-Atlantic, said in a press release.
“We know life can get hectic and that’s a big reason we work so hard to bring time-saving solutions to our customers.”
More than 40,000 items are available to order through Pickup, including fresh meat, hot foods, sushi and produce. Customers can use paper coupons from their car while using the service.
Kroger will waive the $4.95 service charge for a customer’s first three orders, and no minimum purchase is required, the press release stated.
The ability to order online and pickup at stores is a growing trend among retailers. Walmart, Lowe’s, Food City and Target all offer similar services.
