BOSTON -- Peapod by Stop & Shop delivered its millionth customer order on June 18, the company said yesterday.
"We are thrilled to announce this major milestone for our company and for the online grocery channel," says Kiki Steimer, v.p. and general manager of Peapod by Stop & Shop. "Our continued growth over the years has clearly demonstrated the appeal of online grocery shopping and delivery to today's time-starved consumer."
