New Peapod facility brings online grocery shopping to the Jersey Shore

Peapod has opened a new fulfillment facility to serve residents of Monmouth and Ocean counties along New Jersey’s Atlantic shore. The rollout of service to the area will be carried out in two phases this fall.

Residents of the New Jersey shorefront counties of Monmouth and Ocean will soon be able to order their groceries online now that web grocer Peapod LLC and supermarket chain Stop & Shop have opened a new fulfillment facility in the area.

The delivery service will be rolled out in two phases, starting with 27 ZIP codes closest to Tom’s River and including Freehold, Neptune and Jackson. The second phase scheduled for later in the fall will include Asbury Park and areas to the north.

"Peapod by Stop & Shop has seen exciting growth in New Jersey and we are delighted to be able to expand service to Monmouth and Ocean Counties," says Peapod President Andrew Parkinson. "As always, we will strive to provide a wide selection of well-priced, top quality, fresh products with the ease of Internet shopping and home delivery."

Peapod, No. 45 in the Internet Retailer Top 500 Guide, co-brands its service in the New York area with the Stop & Shop supermarket chain. Both companies are owned by Royal Ahold of the Netherlands.
