The grocery digital world is a tough space to navigate but grocers are doing so with aplomb. Southeastern Grocers, the parent company of BI-LO, Fresco y Más, Harveys Supermarket, and Winn-Dixie grocery stores, announced that it’s expanding its e-commerce shopping technologies to include online ordering and grocery delivery service.
“We are always looking for additional opportunities to meet the evolving needs of our customers in each community we serve,” stated Andrew Nadin, EVP and Chief Customer Officer of Southeastern Grocers. “As we embrace digital advancements, we are excited to expand our e-commerce partnerships to offer added conveniences for Louisiana shoppers. Partnering with marketplace leaders will provide our customers with simple options for the same quality products and value, which will help make their lives a little easier.”
Southeastern Grocers is rolling the program out officially in Louisiana stores in cities like Baton Rouge, Covington, Mandeville, New Orleans, Slidell, the Westbank, and other areas. Winn-Dixie shoppers will be able to reap the benefits soon in Louisiana, according to a press release. Shoppers will be able to purchase meat and seafood, fresh produce, and more.
The press release noted that e-commerce technologies provide an added resource to tackle complex consumer demands. Recent SEG survey results show that more shoppers are heading to the internet to do more grocery shopping, indicating that 88 percent of those shoppers had their orders delivered.
