Meijer has expanded its home delivery service to include a pick-up option at stores across the Midwest, including Fort Wayne.
The Grand Rapids, Mich.-based chain announced the expansion Thursday., calling it an “initiative to offer customers multiple ways to conveniently shop its stores.”
Store pick-up is now available at 227 Meijer supercenters in six states.
With the service, customers can shop online for groceries or general merchandise, and a personalized shopper will hand-select them. Customers receive a text from their personalized shopper when the order begins and are contacted when the order is ready to be delivered or picked up, and and the personalized shopper will deliver orders to the shopper’s vehicle. With home delivery, the service runs store-to-door.
Meijer Pickup is available at any Meijer store that offers Home Delivery and is included as part of a Meijer Home Delivery membership. Meijer Home Delivery and Pickup orders are fulfilled by Shipt.
“Customers are always looking for ways to manage busy schedules and maximize their time, so we believe offering pick up enhances our Meijer Home Delivery program, especially around the holiday shopping season,” said Keith Rothstein, Group Vice President of Merchandise Services. “Being able to choose between store-to-door delivery and pick up is another personalized option that ultimately makes it easier than ever to shop at our stores.”
Meijer customers can sign up for the Meijer Home Delivery or Meijer Pickup service at ShopMeijer.com for $99 a year and receive unlimited deliveries for free on orders over $35; a flat $7 delivery fee is added to any orders under $35. Customers can also earn mPerks Rewards on qualifying purchases and redeem at any Meijer location.
Because most Meijer stores are open 24-hours-a-day, customers can choose delivery times most convenient for them, which allows those with challenging schedules or third shift jobs the opportunity to shop and receive orders very early in the morning or late at night. The store pick-up option is available from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week.
