BOISE, IDAHO — Albertsons Companies has set out to reintroduce themselves to shoppers with three new innovations: the launch of the free Deals & Delivery app, the new “Albertsons for U” shopper loyalty program and FreshPass, and an exclusive unlimited grocery delivery service with member-only perks.
“We have been working hard to revolutionize Albertsons Companies’ digital offerings and enhance all aspects of the food experience and journey,” said Chris Rupp, executive vice president and chief customer and digital officer. “We have been in lock-step with our customers and today’s launch exemplifies our commitment to innovation and customer service, meeting shoppers where they want to shop whether that be in store, curbside, or at home.”
