Giant Eagle pilots home delivery
Giant Eagle is dipping its toes into the home delivery market with the launch of the first phase of the Curbside Express Home Delivery pilot in the South Hills section of its native Pittsburgh market.
The multiformat retailer launched the new delivery service in its Village Square Market District store located in Bethel Park, which has offered Curbside Express pickup service for several years. The company plans to expand the home delivery pilot to communities in five South Hills ZIP codes, 15102, 15228, 15234, 15241 and 15243, encompassing Mt. Lebanon, Castle Shannon, Bethel Park, Baldwin-Whitehall and Upper St. Clair.
"Our Curbside Express grocery pickup service continues to grow in popularity, as customers quickly learn that our trained Curbside Express Team members shop for items with the same care and attention to detail that our customers have," Giant Eagle spokesman Dan Donovan said. "We are excited to take this unique convenience to the next level with an innovative home delivery solution, giving customers access to nearly our entire store without ever having to leave home."
The Curbside Express grocery pickup service originally launched at Giant Eagle’s flagship Robinson Township Market District store in 2012, and has since rolled out to 27 Giant Eagle stores throughout Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Columbus and Indianapolis.
As with the grocery pickup service, there's no minimum purchase requirement for Curbside Express Home Delivery. Orders must be placed by 11:59 p.m. for next-day delivery. An order can be placed up to seven days in advance and will be scheduled a delivery day and time. There will be a flat $12.95 delivery charge, but the first order is free.
The home delivery service enables customers to choose from 45,000 groceries, including fresh produce, meat, seafood and bakery items, refrigerated and frozen items, and cleaning and laundry items.
The program accepts ecoupons, and payment for orders are accepted online at the time of checkout through a credit or debit card.
