You're busy. You'd like
to have someone drop off your groceries at your home, but you're not home.
Peapod LLC, the Skokie-based grocery delivery service, is augmenting its list of services, according to Crain's Chicago Business and the Skokie Review, so that customers can have food delivered to their offices, or even drive to a pick-up location and get groceries loaded into their car without ever having to get out of the car.
So far, that pickup service is available in Deerfield, Prospect Heights, Lincolnshire, Schaumburg, Palatine and Deerfield, according to Peapod.com.
Peapod’s Deerfield location was a pioneering effort by the company to expand beyond its home delivery service a day after an order to same day pick-up service.
Large Deerfield employers like Walgreens, Jim Beam, Takeda, Textura and others are within a mile of the Peapod drive through location near the Lake Cook Road Metra station.
