Publix launches online ordering services


Ordering a Publix sub just got easier.

Publix grocery stores is testing an online ordering program on its website for customers to order a custom sub sandwich, wraps, sliced meats and cheeses from their computer or phone. The program is launching in a Lakeland store on Aug. 3 and is expected to rollout in 50 more stores including some in South Florida, later this year, according to Publix spokeswoman, Kimberly Reynolds.

Publix shoppers can place their orders online or on a mobile device by clicking here. On the site, customers can select what kind of sub they want and toppings, sliced meats and cheeses and specify a pickup time. An order pickup number will be provided by email.

New signs in the deli area of participating Publix stores will allow online ordering customers to pick up their items without waiting in regular lines according to a press release. Some grocery stores will have in-store devices for order placement.

All sales prices going on inside that specific store will be honored if current on the day of pickup. Payment transactions will take place at the time of pickup. There is no minimum order amount required and no extra fees will be charged for the service.

It is unclear at this time when the online ordering services will come to South Florida, Reynolds said. Which South Florida stores will be the first test the service have not been announced yet, she said.

Earlier this year, the Lakeland-based grocer announced it was testing digital coupons through website and email platforms. The company confirmed that it's testing a variety of methods.
