Meijer Launches Online Grocery Service
Meijer has announced a new online grocery service offering thousands of grocery and drugstore items to customers worldwide.
The new site, MeijerDoorstepGrocer.com, is the Michigan-based mega retailer’s first effort to sell non-bulk groceries online and is also the company’s first foray into international online sales.
“This is a very important step for our e-commerce operations,” said Rick Keyes, Meijer executive VP of supply chain operations and e-commerce. “While we have provided bulk grocery and multi-pack products in the past, Meijer is now able to serve a broader audience with a greater number of selections. This new site will truly have something for everyone, including international customers.”
MeijerDoorstepGrocer.com features thousands of items in single-pack or smaller sizes. Of the approximately 5,000 items available, more than 3,000 are individual-size products. The remaining products for sale on the site are available in multi-pack or bulk sizes.
In addition to non-perishable national and Meijer-brand grocery and beverage products available, the online site sells baby supplies, pet food, cleaning supplies, laundry products and health food, along with everyday health and beauty items.
The new online grocery site will be available for shoppers in all 50 states. Shipping costs start at $7.95 and are calculated based on the value of the individual order. Most deliveries are received within two to four days of ordering, and there is no minimum order requirement for delivery. International shipping is also available for an additional charge. For a limited time, Meijer is offering a 10 percent discount on orders exceeding $100.
Meijer operates 195 stores throughout Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky, offering expanded fresh produce and meat departments, as well as pharmacies, comprehensive electronics departments, garden centers and apparel offerings.
