There aren’t many things more stressful than pushing your cart through a grocery store while your baby cries and your toddler pulls items off the shelves. But those days are over thanks to a service at the new Harris Teeter in South Baltimore called “Express Lane," through which you order your groceries online, a personal shopper selects the items at the store, you pick them up, and an associate loads them into your car. “I love it because you can go about your day and have control over when you pick them up,” says Canton resident Tracy Hall, pictured. The service is a mere $4.95 extra per trip and, if the store is out of an item, they’ll call and let you know. Hall says that some of the time, the groceries are ready only an hour after you call. “It's just not worth having your kids fight,” she says. “I don’t understand why everybody doesn’t use this service.”
This pick-up service helps busy shoppers.
