Meijer gets in on ship-to-store trend

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Just a few months after launching its Doorstep Grocer program, Meijer is allowing its online shoppers to order items and have the merchandise shipped to a local store at no cost.

The new Order-to-Store program allows shoppers to designate which Meijer store they would like to use as their pickup location. Once the order is received by the store, the customer will receive email notification that their items are ready for pickup.

"This is another example of how Meijer is making the online shopping experience as convenient and affordable as possible for our customers," said Rick Keyes, Meijer EVP supply chain operations and e-commerce. "Not only are we eliminating shipping costs, we're also enabling shoppers to return the items to their local stores. This is a money- and time-saving program that allows even more customers to take advantage of the great offerings we have at Meijer.com."
