Nearly a year after launching its online grocery shopping pickup service and home delivery in Montreal, Metro has expanded the program to Quebec City. Metro shoppers can place an order for pick up at a location in the city’s Beauport borough or opt for home delivery, providing they are within the service area (from Lévis to L’Ancienne-Lorette, and from Quebec City to Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures). Metro said it would continue to launch the service in other cities across the province before introducing it to Ontario. A timeline was not given. “We are pleased to now offer online grocery shopping to the people of Quebec City so that they too can make no compromise with respect to the freshness of the food that they order and find everything they want online as they would in-store,” said Marc Giroux, senior vice-president at Metro, in a press release announcing the launch.
