Giant Food Launching New Delivery Service

Giant Food has announced it has rebranded its delivery service.

Giant Delivers, formerly known as Peapod by Giant, is now available to over six million shoppers living in over 300 zip codes across the greater Washington, D.C. area. The news follows the launch of Giant Pickup earlier this year, which allows customers to place their grocery orders online and pick them up at their local Giant without ever getting out their cars. That service is currently available at over 65 locations, with a total of 100 locations slated to open in Washington, D.C.; Maryland, Virginia; and Delaware by the end of the year.

“Giant has been the trusted neighborhood grocery store for over 80 years, and we are continually looking for new ways to serve our community’s evolving needs and shopping preferences,” Ira Kress, interim president of Giant Food, said in a press release. “Building out our eCommerce services, including Giant Delivers and Giant Pickup, lets us truly put the ‘solution’ in meal solutions. We handle the picking and packing, delivering straight to car or doorstep, giving our shoppers that extra helping hand they need.”

Existing Peapod by Giant customers will not experience any interruption of service, while new customers can sign up for unlimited deliveries for a one-time annual fee of $99. An assortment with hundreds of new items will be offered via both Giant Delivers and Giant Pickup.

In the January 2020 Optimizing Merchant Services Playbook, PYMNTS unpacks what 200 MSPs say is key to delivering the VAS agenda that is critical to their success.
