Seafood City Supermarket, which sells Filipino specialties and general grocery items in 32 stores in the U.S. and Canada, is rolling out its first-ever online store and mobile app for consumers within the delivery or pickup radius of its locations. The retailer has tapped Local Express, an e-Commerce platform for independent grocers, as its white-label technology provider.
“Local Express is instrumental in not only creating the best face of Seafood City online, but also optimizing the back-end e-Commerce operations and synchronizing with our POS and other systems,” said Jonas C. Veneration, who is in charge of information technology at Seafood City, in a statement.
Web site functionality includes providing customers with the option to select curbside pickup or home delivery. Mobile capabilities include connection to the retailer’s loyalty program, the display of weekly flyers and acceptance of SNAP payments.
