*New to offer Fast Lane at-home delivery
Orders are shopped by a team of Fast Lane personal shoppers, who focus on selecting fresh, quality items from each aisle of the store – including beer, wine and spirits. Fast Lane personal shoppers are also SpartanNash associates, allowing the company to own the experience from start to finish and enabling personal shoppers to build relationships with Fast Lane customers and know their preferences.
yes accounts are automatically linked to customers’ Fast Lane accounts, allowing for a seamless experience earning rewards and additional savings.
Commonly purchased items and past Fast Lane orders are all available online at the same price as in store, making it even easier to clip digital coupons, select commonly purchased items or sort by department, sale items or dietary restrictions when placing an order.
Annual and monthly Fast Lane memberships are also available at shopthefastlane.com to provide shoppers with additional savings, regardless of whether they choose at-home delivery or store pickup.
Since launching Fast Lane, the curbside pickup program has quickly expanded and is now available in 46 Family Fare Supermarkets, D&W Fresh Market, Forest Hills Foods and VG’s locations across Michigan and South Dakota.
In December 2017, at-home delivery was launched and in February 2018, SpartanNash added the ability to clip digital coupons instantly on shopthefastlane.com, giving customers additional ways to maximize their savings.
“Our goal is always to find ways to better serve our customers, both in-store and online, and these features ensure our customers get the biggest bang for their buck,” Holt said. “Customers are looking for quality, convenience and savings, and Fast Lane gives them all three.”
