Kroger launches online ordering at select stores

Kroger Central Division launched The Kroger Co.’s new online grocery ordering system. Customers order online at Kroger.com/onlineshopping. On the website, a customer builds a shopping cart, selects a pick-up time during a one-hour window and a store location, and then places the online order. A Kroger store associate hand picks order items and stores them in temperature-appropriate zones until the customer arrives. Once the order is complete, the customer pulls their vehicle into the designated pick-up lane and a store associate will load the order in their car.

Central Division President Jeff Burt said Kroger recently announced a major expansion strategy in the Indianapolis region that included at least $465 million in new, expanded and remodeled stores, as well as a regional training center and more than 3,400 new jobs. Each store with an e-commerce department will include additional capital investments in stores and 30 to 60 new jobs per store in addition to the previously announced numbers. The online ordering program strengthens Kroger’s significant commitment to Indiana and Illinois communities.
