Shop where you stop: Grocery pick-up at your subway station

Loblaw Cos. Ltd. has opened PC Express pick-up services at three Toronto subway stations in a pilot with the Toronto Transit Commission. The service will allow commuters to pre-order groceries online for pick up on their way home that evening.lobbob

"PC Express will make Toronto commuters' lives a little bit easier by putting their groceries right on their transit route home," said Herman Paek, senior vice president of Loblaw Digital. "As we cover the GTA with easy grocery pick-up and delivery options, we're helping our customers live their lives uninterrupted, spending more time doing the things they love."

The addition of TTC stations is a logical complement as Loblaw continues to expand the successful PC Express service. Customers can already order online and pick up from nearly 700 stores nationwide or choose to have their groceries delivered in most major markets. PCExpress is also offered at six GO Train commuter stations. Through the convenience of the TTC station, customers can grocery shop without having to adjust their daily travels.

Customers can place an online web or app order and choose one of three PC Express pickup locations within the TTC network: Finch, High Park and Islington stations. Orders placed by 11:00 a.m. will be available for pick up between 4 and 7 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday for commuters.  Residents near the High Park station can also order by 9 a.m. Saturday and Sunday for pick up between 2 and 5 p.m. The groceries come from nearby Real Canadian Superstore locations, delivered by a customized, temperature-controlled PC Express truck.
