Sureway Supermarket in Grand Isle is the latest grocer in the metro New Orleans area to offer online shopping for grocery pickups at the store. The store, located on a barrier island in Jefferson Parish has provided a similar service for fishers and oil rigs stationed offshore, and wanted to expand the offering to local residents.
“A part of our business already consisted of us filling boat orders for our offshore oil and fishing industry, so making this service available to all our customers is a wonderful thing,” Shelly Jambon, owner of Sureway said in a news release. “We just want to make sure our customers get what they need.”
Customers can access the services via their mobile devices, tablets or desktops at surewaysupermarket.com. Pickups are available every day from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., according to store officials.
Companies including Walmart, Target and the online retailer Amazon, which bought Whole Foods grocers, announced moves to online shopping, curbside pickup and delivery services earlier this year. Rouses offers delivery through the company Instacart.
