Save On Foods introduces online grocery shopping and home delivery

But new services will not be available in Princeton

Save on Foods is changing the way it does business in many communities in BC’s Interior and the Okanagan, but Princeton is not yet on the list for new services.

Beginning in December 11 Save On stores in Kamloops, Kelowna and Vernon will offer online grocery shopping with pick up or home delivery.

Five stores in Prince George will introduce on line shopping for pick up.

“Customers can order groceries online at or through the Save-On-Foods app, and choose a time slot and location to pick them up at. Personal shoppers pick the order and even load the groceries into the customer’s car at designated online shopping pickup parking stalls,” said a company press release.

Using the pick up option is free and where delivery is offered charges will start at $7.95.

Princeton Save On manager Josh Martell said there are no plans at this time to offer those programs in Princeton.

He said the initiatives are costly, and right now focused on larger centers.

“You never know,” he said. “It’s a huge part of the business right now, a huge section that is growing in the market. It’s kind of the future of grocery retailing. Look five years ahead and every store in the company might have it.”
