Giant Food expands store pick-up sites for Peapod orders

Giant Food is expanding store pick-up sites for consumers who shop through online grocer Peapod.

The Landover-based supermarket chain said this week it has added supermarkets in Bowie and in Sterling, Va., to a growing list of stores where Peapod orders can be delivered.

In just the last four months, Giant has added pick-up locations to 20 stores in Maryland and Virginia. The retailer also recently opened a pick-up and fuel station facility in Chevy Chase.

 "We're very excited to be working with our sister grocer Peapod so closely to execute our Giant Pick-up program – an excellent convenience for customers in the mid-Atlantic region," Anthony Hucker, Giant’s president, said in the announcement.

In the Baltimore area, shoppers can place Peapod orders online for home delivery or for pickup at stores in Clarksville, Columbia, Crofton, Annapolis, Severna Park and Edgewater. Shoppers can order from their desktop, laptop, tablet or smart phone for pickup in less than five minutes. Drivers can pull up to the site and have their order loaded into the car.

Giant, which runs 169 supermarkets in Maryland, Virginia, Delaware and Washington, does not charge a pick-up fee or require a minimum purchase. Peapod, founded in 1989 serves 24 markets around the U.S.
