As part of its ongoing commitment to offering customers simple solutions to enhance their shopping experience, GIANT Food Stores announced the launch of its first mobile application for iPhone and Android devices. Customers can now download the mobile application for free at the App Store or Android Market.
“More customers are relying on the convenience that technology can offer and we are committed to bringing that innovation to our customers and to our stores,” said Rick Herring, president, GIANT Food Stores. “The launch of a mobile app is a natural extension to the suite of technologies we currently offer in store. We also look forward to enhancing the capabilities of the GIANT app in the coming months to better serve our customers’ needs.”
The mobile app syncs with a customer’s BonusCard, to provide access to his or her online account, allowing them to check current point totals for Gas Extra Rewards and A+ School Rewards in addition to viewing personalized savings offers. Once customers have built their shopping list online at www.giantfoodstores.com, they will be able to view and check off the list using their mobile device while shopping. Customers can also access store circulars to check out every day savings on the go and get directions to the nearest GIANT.
In-store technology already available in most stores includes Easy Scan checkouts, Easy Shop hand-held scanning devices, Easy Weigh, and the award-winning Shopping Solutions information kiosk.
