Food City is expanding curbside grocery pickup to its Fort Oglethorpe store starting today.
"At Food City, we're always looking for ways to bring added value and convenience to our shoppers," says Steven C. Smith, Food City president and chief executive officer, in a statement. "Our GoCart program is literally changing grocery shopping as we know it."
Since August 2015, Food City has offered its GoCart curbside pick-up that's currently available at numerous locations throughout their market area, with plans to continue expanding the program to other sites.
The program allows customers to select their purchases on-line and the order is filled by a professional shopper and loaded into their vehicle when they arrive at the store. Customers can pay on-line or by credit or debit card at the time of pick-up. Food City charges a minimal service fee of only $4.99, regardless of the order size.
"GoCart combines the added convenience of drive-thru service with the personalization of on-line shopping. It's truly the best of both worlds," said Smith.
The Fort Oglethorpe store is located at 531 Battlefield Parkway. The Food City at 141 Towne Centre Dr., in Crossville, Tenn., also will begin the service today.
