SKOKIE, Ill. — Peapod on Monday said it has expanded its Peapod by Stop & Shop service to Manhattan in New York City, providing residents and businesses in Midtown, the Upper West Side and the Upper East Side another option for home grocery delivery.
Peapod, a division of Stop & Shop’s parent Ahold, previously was available in communities surrounding Manhattan including Queens and New Jersey.
“It's no secret that grocery shopping in Manhattan is a challenge. With the high food prices, large crowds, long lines and limited retailer options, it's a strain on shoppers' wallets and patience," Andrew Parkinson, co-founder and president of Peapod, said in a statement. “With our low prices, thousands of weekly specials and convenient delivery options, we look forward to giving New Yorkers a smart way to save money and time.”
Peapod said it had plans to extend service to additional Manhattan neighborhoods by the end of the year.
