Loblaw Companies Ltd. announced Wednesday that it plans to roll-out its online grocery business, including expansion of its PC Express pick-up sites and home grocery delivery across the country this year.
“As the retail landscape changes, we are now rapidly scaling our e-commerce pick-up and home delivery services to blanket Canada this year,” CEO Galen G. Weston said in a statement.
While home delivery is currently available in 11 major Canadian markets, including Toronto, Vancouver and Calgary through Instacart, the company plans to expand home delivery into five additional markets this year, including Montreal, Halifax and Regina.
The company said PC Express will be introduced to 500 new pick-up sites, including more grocery stores, GO Train commuter stations, and the first of many Shoppers Drug Mart stores. By the end of 2018, the company aims to have more than 700 pick-up locations.
