Ahold said Monday that it has made grocery ordering and delivery available in the Harrisburg and York, Pa., markets through its Giant-Carlisle and Peapod divisions.
A new fulfillment facility in Camp Hill, Pa., now services 60 communities around Harrisburg and York, Ahold said. Approximately 50 new jobs have been created, which include personal shoppers and delivery drivers.
“It’s all about making it easy for our customers to shop for their groceries,” Giant president Tom Lenkevich said in a statement. “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.”
The service allows shoppers to 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 store 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, which is located within the Camp Hill Giant store, also serves pickup 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 stores.
