Guilderland shoppers may now pick up their groceries curbside

GUILDERLAND — Local residents now may pick up their groceries curbside at the Guilderland Hannaford Supermarket & Pharmacy.

The new service, called Hannaford To Go, is Guilderland’s first curbside grocery pickup option.

Customers may shop online at whenever it is convenient and order any product sold at the grocery store, including hot food, produce, and items that need refrigeration. Associates assemble the order and have it ready for the customer to pick up curbside.

With as little as four hours of notice, customers may pick their orders between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. (9 a.m. to 8 p.m., starting in early June). Groceries are loaded into the car for the customer.

Associates “refer to any comments made by an individual customer, such as how yellow they want their bananas or how thick they want their steak,” according to a release from Hannaford.

The service is free to use for orders of at least $125 and $5 for smaller orders. The first order, of any size, is free. Customers may use coupons, just as they would inside the store.

Hannaford to Go has been popular with customers in its first two pilot markets, in Windham, Maine and Durham, N.H., according to the release. Guilderland is the first New York Hannaford to have online ordering and curbside pickup. Other locations are planned.
