How would you like to pick up your groceries right when you get off the GO Train?
Loblaw Companies Limited has signed a deal to allow customers to pick up their online grocery orders at certain GO Transit stations in the Greater Toronto Area.
The grocer is working with Metrolinx to offer the service starting later this spring at five stations (Bronte, Oakville, Rouge Hill, Whitby and Clarkson) with plans to expand in phases to additional locations.
The service will allow customers to place their order online for pick up the next day.
The company says the groceries will come from nearby Fortinos or Loblaws stores and will be waiting in a special delivery truck, in lockers or in an enclosed kiosk.
The service follows the introduction by Loblaw of its click-and-collect model where customers order online and pick up their order at a store.
