Publix has begun testing curbside pickup at two central Florida stores.
Two of the grocery giant's locations in Wesley Chapel and Valrico, both near Tampa, are offering the convenient service.
The move comes on the heels of Publix’s deal with Instacart, which provides grocery delivery services for a fee. The cubside pickup program allows customers to place orders on Publix’s website.
Store associates will then gather the selected groceries and carry them out to customers’ vehicles at a designated pickup time.
Atlanta-area stores are also expected to start testing curbside pickup by the end of the year.
The option is not yet available at any South Florida locations.
Publix says the curbside pickup option is free of charge.
