Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many businesses have allowed customers to shop online, then pick up their goods outside the store. Stop & Shop in Bayonne is the latest business to hop on the trend, announcing a new pickup location for groceries at 1 Lefante Way.
Shoppers will be able to place an order and schedule a pickup at www.stopandshop.com, or on the Stop & Shop mobile app.
Shoppers can then head to the store at their chosen pickup time, park in a designated pickup spot, and call to let the store team know they have arrived. Stop & Shop team members will then deliver the order right to their cars.
“We’re excited to offer our customers the convenience of shopping online for all their favorite items, and then picking up that order from the comfort of their vehicle,” said Donn Calvano, store manager of Stop & Shop Bayonne. “We hope this service helps make things easier for them.”
Stop & Shop has altered its pickup policies with virus safety in mind. Customers are asked to have their trunk or door open for associates to place groceries directly into their vehicle. Customers are also encouraged to wear masks and limit the number of people in their vehicle, when possible.
All Stop & Shop pickup associates will be wearing masks and follow all of the same sanitizing precautions as its in-store associates, including surface sanitization and regular hand washing.
Due to high demand, supply may be limited for certain items like disinfecting wipes and other cleaning products and may not be available for purchase. Purchase limits are also in place for other high-demand items. Customers are encouraged to allow for comparable substitutions.

A $30 minimum is required on all pickup orders, and a $2.95 service fee will be applied at checkout. For more information on the new service visit www.stopandshop.com or download the Stop & Shop mobile app.
