Wegmans is adding a layer of convenience to … convenience.
It just started testing an app called Wegmans 2GO at its flagship store on Monroe Avenue in Pittsford.
Users can order prepared foods — pizza, wings, subs, sushi, soups, some ready-to-heat home-style meals, create-your-own-salad salads and drinks — for pickup in the prepared foods department or curbside pickup at designated spots on the far left side of the store’s parking lot near the Burger Bar.
“The menu has evolved and may continue to evolve during the pilot,” said Wegmans media relations coordinator Katie Roche, adding that there’s no markup on app-ordered prepared foods; prices are the same as what customers pay in the store.
Wegmans 2GO was developed for the iPhone, Roche said, but an Android version should be available in mid- to late January.
The app also offers delivery by Wegmans employees and Instacart drivers within five miles of the Pittsford store. However, the minimum order for delivery is $20, plus a $10 fee. There’s no minimum order (or fee) for in-store or curbside pickup.
