Peapod to charge for store pick-up

Online grocer Peapod will implement a fee for its store pick-up service beginning Sept. 2.

Store pick-up customers will be charged $2.95, with a minimum order size of $60. The service - available at Ahold’s Stop & Shop and Giant stores- previously was free, with no minimum order.

Peapod announced the change in an email to customers:

“We kept it as close to free as we possibly could. But it's true — we have to start charging a fee for pick-up orders… We hope you agree it's worth it.”

The service lets shoppers choose their groceries online or via a mobile app. Pick-up clients then go to their store, and their groceries are loaded into their cars.

The Peapod email encourages users to sign up for the Peapod Pod Pass, which charges a fee for unlimited home delivery or pickup services. A three-month Pod Pass costs $39; six-month, $59; and one year, $99.

Peapod is a wholly owned subsidiary of Ahold.
