I’ve just updated this blog post on where you can place a supermarket order online. It now includes 39 46 stores that let you order online and either pick up or have your groceries delivered.

In addition, you may have ended up here because you were looking for information about Peapod delivery. Now, you need to order directly from the grocery stores that used to be the ones fulfilling those Peapod orders.

This includes Stop and Shop Delivery or Giant Food Delivery or Giant Direct Delivery, depending on where you live. You’ll still get the great delivery experience that you got with Peapod. RIP, Peapod.

More people than ever order groceries online

As more and more stores allow you to place a supermarket order online, I’ll continue to update this blog post to reflect that. We’ve been using Instacart a lot lately.

Here’s my new review of Instacart called “Instacart Grocery Delivery: Is it Worth it?”

Can I order groceries online and pick them up?

I’ve also been able to buy my groceries online and then pick them up at Giant Eagle, Target and Walmart.

Can I order groceries online and have them delivered?

However, there are dozens of supermarkets nationwide that let you place your grocery order online to be delivered. Some are doing the delivering themselves, like Giant Eagle’s Curbside Express. You can choose between pick up and delivery. Delivery costs more.

Others are employing Instacart to deliver, like Costco does.  Or companies like Instacart, such as Shipt

Shipt and VISA offer

Shipt has a new and exclusive offer for VISA card holders. Any Visa consumer credit card holder that enrolls in Shipt will receive a free Shipt membership and/or a discounted membership rate. This is for new Shipt customers only.

Place Your Supermarket Order Online

So, what grocery stores do online ordering? Or, where can you go these days to place your supermarket order online? I’ve uncovered 39 46 supermarkets and grocery stores. They either offer home delivery of your groceries or are still doing pick up at the store. I’ve listed them here in alphabetical order.

Acme Fresh Markets

Acme Fresh Markets are based in Ohio. Anyway, Acme Fresh Markets offers both grocery pickup. You have to create an account at acmestores.com first. Also, you’ll need to order at least $35 worth of groceries. And you’ll pay a $2.95 pickup fee. 

Acme Markets

Acme Markets works with Instacart to help you get your groceries delivered. This is the only way you get Acme home delivery.

Also, there is Acme grocery delivery to your car, aka pickup. However, pickup is not available in every location. I just searched two zip codes where I used to live in the Philadelphia suburbs. Both defaulted to Instacart delivery because pickup was not available.

Albertsons

In some markets, Albertsons is working with Instacart for grocery pickups in store. Those markets are:

  • Austin
  • Dallas
  • Denver
  • Houston
  • Las Vegas

More about placing a supermarket order online

I’ve talked a lot about how you can get your grocery shopping done without leaving the house. And in many cases either Instacart or Shipt will be the services delivering your supermarket order. Here now is a bit more information about each of these services.

Consider tipping extra for your Instacart person during these challenging times. We always tips 20 percent–the same as we would if we were dining out in restaurants, which we’re not doing these days.

Finally, not sure if Instacart is available in your area? From an Instacart press release:

“Instacart today powers pickup for more than 50 grocery partners, including Food Lion, Gelson’s, Publix, Price Chopper, Schnucks, Shop ‘n Save, The Fresh Market, Wegmans and more, across more than 30 states.”
