Publix pilots curbside pickup

LAKELAND, Fla. — Beginning Sept. 28, Publix will begin testing curbside grocery pickup at two locations in Florida. In addition, Metro-Atlanta stores will begin testing curbside pickup by the end of this year.

“We’ve had great success with Publix Delivery powered by Instacart, and the demand for online grocery services has continued to grow," stated Maria Brous, director of media and community relations, Publix. "So we’re excited to test Publix Curbside and learn more about how to best meet the evolving needs of our customers.”

Publix has been aggressively rolling out grocery delivery since July 2016. By the end of this year, Publix Delivery will be available from more than 90% of its stores, as the company remains committed to making this service available companywide.

For the curbside grocery pickup, customers will place their orders on and can choose curbside pickup or delivery at check out. Curbside orders will be shopped and carried to customers’ vehicles by Publix associates.
