Fareway Stores now offers online shopping at 126 Fareway Meat & Grocery and Fareway Meat Market locations in a five-state region through Shop.Fareway.com or via the Fareway mobile app.
With an easy-to-navigate platform, customers can still get farm-fresh produce and high-quality meat, picked by Fareway’s experts, and receive the same great to-your-car carryout service. Newly planned store locations will provide for this service upon opening.
The buy online, curbside pick-up solution launched at the flagship Boone, Iowa, Fareway store in January 2021. The service is free with a $30 minimum purchase. Orders can be modified up to 30 minutes before pickup and can be ready as quickly as three hours after being placed.
“Our unmatched Fareway experience now includes the convenience of online shopping,” said Fareway CEO Reynolds W. Cramer. “Fareway experts will continue to cut and package fresh meat, offer farm-fresh produce to proper ripeness, and provide exceptional customer service. But now each customer can get this Fareway experience a different way.”
The online platform is powered by GrocerKey, a leading e-commerce technology provider. There is no membership fee to use the online shopping service.
Family-owned Fareway Store operates stores in Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Nebraska and South Dakota.
