Over at Albertsons Companies, innovation is the name of the game, with the launch of its 30-minute grocery pickup and delivery service with Flash™. The retailer has also unveiled the latest digital enhancements to its shoppable Meal Plans and Recipes tool for its grocery apps and websites.
Available now at more than 2,000 locations, including Albertsons, Safeway, Vons, Jewel-Osco, Shaw's, ACME, and Tom Thumb banner stores, Albertsons’ new Flash service further expands the retailer’s digital leadership and commitment to providing customers fast, convenient grocery essentials without compromising on quality.
“Shoppers today want fast pickup and delivery, and Albertsons is meeting this expectation with our new Flash service,” noted Stephen Menaquale, Albertsons’ Senior Vice President, E-Commerce and Fulfillment, in the release. “Whether you’re missing a key ingredient for tonight’s dinner, or need a healthy snack for your kid’s lunchbox, families can turn to Albertsons to quickly replenish their food and household staples.”
Shortly after announcing its new grocery service, the company revealed updates to its Meal Plans and Recipes tools, designed to provide customers with culinary inspiration throughout the week while saving time and money.
The meal plan feature includes a budget tracker, an expanded library of more than 8,000 exclusive recipes, shoppable ingredient lists, and a hands-free cooking mode with a step-by-step timer.
New recipes are added to the Meal Plans and Recipes tool each month, so shoppers can enjoy seasonal variety in meals.
“This all-in-one tool empowers the everyday home cook to plan, shop, and prepare inspiring recipes without the added expense or commitment of a meal delivery service,” said Jill Pavlovich, Senior Vice President of Digital Customer Experience. “Our Meal Plans tool offers greater versatility, as price-conscious families can plan a week’s worth of flavorful meals based on their budget. Best of all, it’s free to use on our grocery app and website.”
