Lidl Grocery Delivery Comes to Greenville, SC
Residents in the Greenville, S.C., area can now have groceries delivered from Lidl, according to the Upstate Business Journal (UBJ), a business journal serving Upstate South Carolina.
UBJ noted that, as of Oct. 17, 123,000-plus Greenvile-area households can order groceries from the German hard-discount grocer, which set up shop in June and has its U.S. headquarters in Arlington County, Va. Third-party delivery provider Shipt fulfills the orders.
To use the service, members select groceries and other items in the Shipt app, note any preferences, choose a one-hour delivery window, and pay for their order, the journal noted. To be a member costs $99 annually, although memberships prior to the pilot’s launch will cost only $49 a year. All members get unlimited delivery, free on orders of more than $35.
In addition to Lidl, Greenville-area residents may order groceries from Whole Foods Market and Publix via the Birmingham, Ala.-based service. They also may order from Whole Foods, Publix and Costco Wholesale Corp. through rival third-party delivery service Instacart.
Lidl operates more than 10,000 stores in 28 countries. The retailer currently has 38 stores in five states along the East Coast, with plans to open as many as 100 by summer 2018.
