USA: Albertsons.com takes grocery solutions down new avenues
The word is spreading, and so is the service area: Albertsons.com has extended its delivery service out across five new zip codes, reminding customers again that creative grocery solutions aren't limited to just their neighborhood stores. New zip codes in Sammamish, Issaquah, Puyallup, Everett and Ravensdale have been added to the list of areas serviced, which now totals 95. Albertsons.com offers consumers the same wide variety of perishable and non-perishable grocery items at low prices offered at any of the 57 Seattle-area brick-and-mortar stores, complemented by an assortment of special prices and lifestyle tips, like Healthy Eating advice from registered dieticians and Quick Fixin' Ideas, that are not available off-line. By expanding the delivery area, the online grocer aims to satisfy the growing number of people living outside the urban center. "We understand that people are getting busier and we are making the extra effort to be at their doorstep," said Jenny Enochson, corporate manager of community relations for Albertsons.com. "Our delivery drivers are going the distance to meet customers where they are and area coverage is expanding accordingly." Albertson's opened its first grocery store in 1939. Founder Joe Albertson changed the rules in the grocery business by introducing then unheard of services like a scratch bakery, magazine racks and homemade ice cream. The operation of his first store was based on the principles of providing high quality, good value and excellent service to every customer. Sixty years later, those same principles continue to guide the operation of every Albertson store. Albertson's Inc. is one of the largest retail food and drug chains in the United States. Based in Boise, Idaho, the Company currently operates almost 2,500 retail stores in 36 states across the United States. Editor's Note: See list of Albertsons.com delivery zip codes below.
