Ahold Delhaize Banner Stop & Shop Introduces Grocery Lockers at Brigham Circle
BOSTON, MA - Grocery pickup and delivery are inarguably one of the most popular ways to shop, but what is the best strategy for retailers to implement? Our industry’s leaders have taken many different approaches, and Ahold Delhaize banner Stop & Shop recently rolled out a trial of its own. Launching at its Brigham Circle location in Boston, Massachusetts, Stop & Shop has unveiled its new walk-up grocery locker program to make shopping even easier for its customers.
“Stop & Shop is dedicated to providing innovative grocery solutions for our customers, especially as we continue to navigate the pandemic,” Stacy Wiggins, Vice President of E-commerce Operations for Stop & Shop, said in a press release. “The Locker Pick-up program is another way we’re working to accelerate our e-commerce offerings so that our customers can shop for and pick up their groceries at a time that’s most convenient for their schedule. We hope that by eliminating the need to wait in line or go in-store, they’ll get even more time back into their day.”
According to local news source boston.com, shoppers are able to place orders online and select a pickup window before receiving their personal code for the grocery locker kiosk. The lockers are located near the store’s main entrance, making it easier than ever before to get in and out quickly.
The lockers include refrigerated, frozen, and room temperature storage space, which shoppers’ items are stored in by Stop & Shop team members. Additionally, they are sanitized after each use and monitored 24/7.
Will this innovative solution soon be rolling out across Stop & Shop’s entire store network? Stay tuned as ANUK reports.
