Tom Thumb, in partnership with parent company Albertsons, is launching delivery services in the Dallas-Fort Worth area today. Tom Thumb is introducing a fleet of state-of-the-art home delivery trucks. The trucks are equipped with multiple-temperature zones so the frozen items stay frozen and the vegetables are crisp when delivered, according to the company.
“Fast, easy, and convenient is what consumers want, and providing home delivery is our answer,” said Dennis Bassler, president, Southern Division. “We are delighted to bring this service to our customers in North Texas.”
To celebrate the launch and provide customers with additional savings, shoppers will receive $10 off and free delivery on their first delivery. The Tom Thumb grocery delivery service offers one-hour delivery windows and a shop-by-history feature that saves all previously purchased items for easy repeat purchasing.
“We’ve made online shopping extremely efficient,” Bassler said. “The process is simple. Customers order online and select a delivery date and time. Our personal shoppers select the items and carefully load them into the refrigerated trucks for delivery.”
Tom Thumb is hardly the first in the area. Kroger, Sprouts and Central Market have launched delivery services over the past few months. And there are other grocery delivery programs available in North Texas from companies like AmazonFresh, Instacart and Shipt.
Some retailers, like Wal-Mart and Whole Foods also offer online ordering and curbside pickup.
