Peapod to Open at East Northport Store

Peapod will open its newest warehouse Monday at  the Stop & Shop store on East Jericho Turnpike in East Northport.

The grocery-delivery company has four other warehouses on Long Island.

“With this expansion, we can reach more homes and also offer even more capacity to serve both new and existing customers. Expanding our delivery and pick-up service is just one more way that Peapod is making the lives of our customers easier,” said Walt Lentz, interim president of Peapod.

The store has been undergoing remodeling for months to make room for the 10,000-square foot Peapod operation, which it calls a wareroom. It will offer both home delivery and pickup services.

“As more and more people in our area seek the flexibility and convenience of online grocery, it’s especially valuable to offer a seamless experience for our Stop & Shop customers,” said Steve Kienzle, senior vice president of sales and operations south market for Stop & Shop. “Whether shopping in store, opting for pick-up or getting home delivery, we can offer a consistently high quality and high value experience to fit all the ways today’s busy consumers shop.”

The company said the warehouse will create 125 jobs.

The facility’s grand opening will run from  9 to 11 a.m.

In honor of the opening, Peapod will be making a donation to Island Harvest, Stop & Shop’s longtime partner in the fight against hunger on Long Island.
