LUBBOCK, TEXAS - The United Family has now filled over one million orders through its Streetside grocery pickup service. To celebrate, team members surprised the 1,000,000th and 1,000,001st Streetside guests with gifts.
“It was important for our team to take a second and recognize the guest who got us over this milestone,” said Chris Farr, director of e-commerce for United Family. “Obviously, we wouldn’t be where we are today without our wonderful guests. So, not only thank you to our 1,000,001st guest but a thank you to all of our guests who made this possible.”
Like many online industries, the United Family’s e-commerce division has seen unprecedented growth due to the pandemic. As people looked for options that involved less person-to-person contact, the Streetside team saw an explosion in demand.
“Since March, we have seen more and more demand for a curbside or delivery option for groceries,” Farr said. “I’m really proud of our team on all levels. They have not only worked on the frontlines of the pandemic, but they have also rolled with the punches as we saw more demand than ever before.”
