Stop & Shop in Oceanside offering online ordering, pickup amid pandemic

Posted

Stop & Shop continues to provide Long Island residents with faster and more convenient ways to shop, announcing a new pickup location in Oceanside at 465 Atlantic Ave.

Shoppers will be able to place an order at stopandshop.com or on the Stop & Shop mobile app, head to the store, and have a Stop & Shop associate load their groceries into their car.

To schedule a pickup, customers can visit the company’s website or mobile app and click on “order online” and select “pickup” at the preferred store. Shoppers can then head to the store at their chosen pickup time, park in a designated spot, and call to let the store team know they have arrived. Stop & Shop team members will then deliver the order to their car.

“We’re excited to offer our customers the convenience of shopping online for all their favorite items, and then picking up that order from the comfort of their vehicle,” said Carl Caixiero, the store manager at Stop & Shop Oceanside. “We hope this service helps make things easier for them.”

Stop & Shop has altered its pickup policies with associate and customer safety in mind. Customers are asked to have their trunk or door open for associates to place groceries directly into their vehicle. Customers are also encouraged to wear masks and limit the number of people in their vehicle, when possible. In addition, all Stop & Shop pickup associates will be wearing masks and follow all the same sanitizing precautions as its in-store associates, including surface sanitization and regular handwashing.

Due to customer demand, supply may be limited for certain items like disinfecting wipes and other cleaning products and may not be available for purchase. Purchase limits are also still in place for certain high-demand items, and customers are encouraged to allow for comparable substitutions.

A $30 minimum is required on all pickup orders and a $2.95 service fee will be applied at checkout.

New customers can receive the service free for 90 days by entering the code

SSFREEPICKUP at checkout. Minimum purchase required. Online pickup fee is waived on first order and then on all subsequent orders of $30 or more if placed within 90 days of first order. Valid for first-time residential customers only in select zip codes.

Offer excludes alcoholic beverages, gift cards, postage stamps and any other purchases prohibited by law.

Offer not transferable. Limit one per household.
