Giant and Peapod Launch Online Shopping and Delivery Service

Giant Food Stores has partnered with its sister company Peapod, the leading internet grocer, to offer online grocery shopping and delivery to consumers’ homes or businesses in more than 60 communities in greater Harrisburg and York, Pa.  A new fulfillment facility in Camp Hill, Pa.  services Peapod by Giant's home and workplace grocery delivery to these communities. Approximately 50 new jobs have been created, which include personal shoppers and delivery drivers, to provide customers with this new shopping opportunity. “It’s all about making it easy for our customers to shop for their groceries,” says Tom Lenkevich, president of Giant Food Stores, based in Carlisle, Pa. “With the launch of Peapod by Giant, our customers now have a full range of shopping options.  Whether it is shopping in our stores, ordering online and picking up, or having their groceries delivered to their home or office, Giant customers truly can shop when, where, and how they want.” “Customers will have a wide selection of well-priced, top quality and fresh products that they have come to expect from Giant and not only will they continue to save money, but customers can save both time and travel by using Peapod by Giant,” Lenkevich says. Residents and businesses in more than 60 area ZIP codes including Carlisle, Harrisburg, Mechanicsburg, and York can visit peapod.com to shop for fresh fruits and vegetable, seafood, meat and dairy as well as best selling national brands and Giant private label products, all of which can now be delivered to their home or workplace.  Shoppers can shop anywhere, anytime from their laptop, tablet or smartphone with Peapod’s mobile app. They can also create personal lists, read nutrition information online, and sort products rapidly by price or by nutrition criteria.  Giant Bonus Card users can jumpstart their first shop online from a list of items they have bought at their local Giant simply by entering their card number online. Customers also earn Giant Gas Rewards and A+ School Rewards for their online purchases. Groceries can be delivered as soon as the next day after the order is placed. In addition to providing home and workplace delivery, the new fulfillment facility in Camp Hill, which is located within the Camp Hill Giant, also serves Pick-up locations located in the Camp Hill and Linglestown Road Giant stores. This service offers consumers the option to shop online at peapod.com and choose to pick up their groceries at one of those two Giant stores. Peapod’s state-of-the-art order-fulfillment technology and proprietary transportation routing system help achieve accuracy and efficiency in picking, packing and delivering grocery orders.  “We have delivered more than 30 million orders and recently celebrated our 25th anniversary,” says Andrea Eldridge, SVP Commercial, Peapod East Markets, Peapod, “and we are delighted to extend our service to consumers in this new market.”
