Meal planning and grocery shopping take up a significant amount of my time each week. And trust me, I'm not much of a cook or a baker. Some weeks, I find myself in the grocery store/pharmacy/Costco multiple times. I figured Long Island must have an online delivery service and thankfully Peapod Grocery Delivery services our area.
What started out as a small, family-run shopping and delivery service in Illinois has become America's leading Internet grocer. Peapod has now delivered more than 23 million orders across 24 U.S. markets throughout Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, Washington, D.C. and Wisconsin. It currently service all 5 boroughs of New York.
Via peadpod.com, customers can place orders up to seven days a week for delivery or pick-up as soon as next-day, or up to two weeks in advance. I recently tried it out and placed an order for next day delivery. The site is pretty easy to navigate and I found a lot of our grocery staples. Peadpod is owned by Royal Ahold, and works in partnership with Ahold USA supermarket companies Stop & Shop, Giant Food Stores (Giant-Carlisle) and Giant Food (Giant-Landover) so you can expect similar offerings through the online/pick-up delivery service. Delivery fees apply. You can check out the rates here.
Peapod in our area was seamless and I love having the option of ordering groceries to be delivered to our door in a time frame that suits my schedule. I'm hoping to see more organic and prepared meal options in the future but overall I highly recommend the service. It's super convenient, like having a personal shopper, for weeks when I simply can't be running around.
WIN IT! We're happy to offer the chance to win a $100 gift code to Peapod.com for customers in the 5 boroughs of New York (Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx, Long Island).
