Call (973) 762-5200 x1 to place an order
When ordering online from a grocery store, you create an account that you can use for all future purchases. The online order might not be coming from the nearest store (Kings, Stop & Shop, Whole Foods) so might have different prices than if you went to the store in person. There is usually a minimum order and a delivery fee. To make up for the delivery fee, online shopping services offer special discounts, free products or savings. With any of the online deliveries, you can choose a time frame in which you want the groceries delivered.
