Grocery delivery services may seem like a wave of the future, but Giant Food, subsidiary of Ahold Delhaize, has been serving its customers in Washington DC for 30 years. In order to maintain its grocery momentum, the service, formerly known as Peapod, was rebranded to Giant Delivers.
Aside from the Giant Delivers initiative, the company has made grocery pickup available at 65 DC stores, planning for 100 by the year’s end. Additionally, the services will promote Good Food’s expanding line of meal kits, which are locally made with products from Capital Baking Company, Capital City Mambo Sauce, Soupergirl, Logan’s Sausage Company, Otterbein’s Cookies, and more.
According to wtop, Giant Food’s grocery delivery service currently reaches over 300 zip codes in DC and offers same-day delivery downtown. Making the deal even sweeter, customers can opt for a year-long unlimited delivery deal for just $99.
