Meijer to offer free pickup on orders of $50 or more
Meijer shoppers using the supermarket delivery and pick-up service can now pay the same prices for groceries as in-store shoppers and receive a fee break.
Sales items were not previously included, but customers could select items that were offered at a special price on their digital platform. For example, customers can now choose $ 10 for 10 promotions plus weekly sales, both on delivery and on Meijer home pickup.
The Grand Rapids-based retailer said the changes, which will go into effect immediately, will be more affordable for customers Options to shop safely for the holidays, according to a press release. Grocery delivery and collection demand increased during the pandemic as shoppers became concerned about the COVID-19 risks in stores.
