Fred Meyer Ballard is launching its online grocery shopping program this Wednesday, December 7.
The program, ClickList, will allow shoppers to order their groceries online and pick them up on the same day at the Ballard store. The program is focused on grocery/food items at the moment but may expand to include other store items in the future.
How does it work, you may ask? Customers place their order online, Fred Meyer Associated choose their items and deliver them curbside to the customer who pays via credit/debit card without leaving their vehicle.
“We’ve rolled this program out in various locations throughout Oregon, Washington and Idaho so far, but this will be the first ClickList program in the city of Seattle,” says Fred Meyer Community Affairs Specialist Zach Stratton.
The Fred Meyer team is excited to be “the only ones in our market to offer this kind of service” that offers “the customer their complete grocery list for online order and pickup, saving the time of going into the store and shopping”.
According to Stratton, an initial investment of about $230,000 was needed for ClickList to be launched at the Ballard store. The addition of the program has created 10 net new jobs with plans to add more as the business grows.
