Starting today, Safeway grocery stores will be delivering their groceries to area homes via their Safeway.com onling ordering service. Of course, they’re going to be facing the ever-popular Peapod service from rival Giant. Safeway.com will be offering a free delivery on an order over $50 as a reward for signing up, but be aware that groceries won’t come from a central warehouse as they do with Peapod, but rather from your area Safeway. That can have its detriments, given the status of several area Safeway stores.
Check it out, and let us know what you think. I’m always looking for ways to help decrease the number of errands I have to run in any given week, and perhaps Safeway.com might be a way to do just that.
