The grocery store chain Fred Meyer offers an online ordering service that allows customers to purchase food items, home supplies and gift cards online, then retrieve the items from a nearby store location, as of 2015. The stores also offer online ordering and shipping for flowers, gifts and photo items such as cards, prints and books.
The online grocery shopping service of Fred Meyer stores requires customers to create an account with the site, FredMeyer.com, in order to link the purchase to the store's loyalty program and manage payments. After creating an account, customers are able to browse through products available at all stores, excluding any local items exclusive to a particular store. The site organizes items to mirror how they appear in the store, with virtual isles for produce, meats, canned goods and cleaning products. After adding the items to the cart, with the appropriate quantities, the customer needs to choose a pickup store and pay for the items. She then receives a date and time when she may retrieve the items.
Flower and gift purchases occur through a special Fred Meyer section of FTDFlorists.com, with selection and delivery options defaulting to the FTD company. Photo orders also take place through an external site, FMPhotoShare.com, which requires its own username and password to use. The site allows customers to develop digital prints from cameras and social media sites, as well as create custom photo books, greeting cards and special decor items.
