Albertsons Cos. has been nominated in the Best Apps & Software – Shopping & Retail category in the 28th Annual Webby Awards for its digital app experience. The Webby Awards, presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, is the leading international awards organization honoring excellence on the Internet. 

Dedicated to seamlessly integrating digital and physical channels, Albertsons has created a set of tools within its mobile app that bridge the gap between in-store and online shopping. According to the company, these customer-centric innovations not only create a more personalized experience for shoppers at every touchpoint, but also unlock a cohesive shopping experience that transcends the traditional boundaries of grocery retail. By embracing the concept of a “Versatile Shopping Experience,” Albertsons has said to have created a seamless and personalized experience for planning, shopping, inspiration, meal planning, and even health and pharmacy.
