In the grocery world, convenience is king, and apps are the queens behinds the scenes that make it all happen. Wegmans latest app, Wegmans 2Go, adds that additional layer of convenience that those of us in this busy world love to see. The retailer began testing the pilot at its flagship store at Monroe Avenue in Pittsford, New York.
According to a report from local news source, Rochester Democrat & Chronicle, users can order prepared foods through Wegmans 2GO, such as pizza, wings, soups, and ready-to-heat-and-eat meals, for pickup in the prepared foods department or at curbside pickup.
“The menu has evolved and may continue to evolve during the pilot,” said Wegmans Media Relations Coordinator Katie Roche, before adding that there isn’t a markup on app-ordered foods—prices remain what customers would pay in store. The app also offers delivery by Wegmans employees and Instacart drivers within five miles of the Pittsford store.
So, when will it be available at your local Wegmans?
“We are improving the app as we go, based on customer and employee feedback,” Roche stated. “There is no set timeline for rolling it out to more stores. We want to get this right before opening it up to more customers.”
Will this app be the next big thing for Wegmans? Deli Market News will continue to report.
