As part of its efforts to ensure the well-being and safety of its associates, customers and communities during the coronavirus pandemic, 155 SpartanNash-owned stores in nine states now offer contactless payment options, including tap-to-pay credit cards, Apple Pay, Android Pay, Google Pay, Samsung Pay, Garmin Pay, Fitbit and Bronco.
The new options are designed to increase the speed of checkout as well as increase safety and sanitation by reducing the number of touches during the checkout process.
“We are proud to continue to adapt to our ever-changing environment and add additional ways to keep our store guests and associates safe, especially when these updates make shopping at our stores more convenient than ever,” said Lori Raya, EVP and chief merchandising and marketing officer for Grand Rapids, Mich.-based SpartanNash, in a release.
The contactless payment options are available at all Family Fare, Martin’s Super Markets, D&W Fresh Market, VG’s Grocery and Dan’s Supermarket locations, as well as Ada Fresh Market, Dillonvale IGA, Econofoods, Family Fresh Market, Forest Hills Foods, Fresh City market, No Frills, Pick’n Save, SunMart, Supermercado Nuestra Familia and ValuLand stores throughout the Midwest.
“Providing our store guests with options that fit their shopping preferences—whether that be shopping in-store and using contactless payment or using Fast Lane curbside pickup and at-home delivery—is part of our commitment at SpartanNash,” said EVP and General Manager of Corporate Retail Tom Swanson. “Our top priority is keeping our store guests and associates safe, and this is another way we can continue to do so during these unprecedented times.”
