Northern Michigan shoppers can now join the ‘Fast Lane’ at nine additional Family Fare Supermarkets
Customers can now order, pick up and go at 49 SpartanNash stores
Fast Lane available at Forest Hills Foods, Family Fare Supermarkets, D&W Fresh Market and VG’s stores throughout Michigan
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – For families on the go or anyone short on time and looking for quality and convenience, Fast Lane is now available at the Family Fare Supermarkets in Grayling, Boyne City, Bellaire, Charlevoix, Oscoda, Gladwin, Traverse City and Manistee. The stores join 40 Family Fare Supermarkets, Forest Hills Foods, D&W Fresh Market and VG’s stores to offer Fast Lane, the SpartanNash click-and-collect program that provides a seamless online grocery shopping experience.
Store guests at the nine additional Family Fare locations can now join the Fast Lane, allowing them to easily order their groceries online at shopthefastlane.com and pick them up curbside.
To celebrate the expansion of the click-and-collect experience in Northern Michigan, customers can have their first three Fast Lane orders shopped for free using the code “FASTLANE”.
Fast Lane orders are shopped by personal shoppers – who are also SpartanNash associates – and who focus on selecting fresh, quality items from each aisle of the store. Store guests can also include notes for Fast Lane shoppers to follow, allowing them to request specific items, such as green bananas and thick-sliced ham from the deli.
The Fast Lane program was first launched at the Family Fare Supermarket in Grandville in July 2017 and has since continued to expand its offerings and convenience for customers.
In December, at-home delivery was launched and currently serves Grand Rapids customers in 24 zip codes. In February 2018, SpartanNash added the ability to clip digital coupons instantly on shopthefastlane.com, giving customers additional ways to maximize their savings by alerting them to digital coupons they can clip and redeem the instant they add eligible items to their online cart.
