LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) - Lakeland-based Publix Super Markets Inc. is testing out a curbside to-go service for groceries.
The program, called Publix Curbside, will allow shoppers to place orders online or over the phone for a $7.99 fee.
The service will be tested at an Atlanta store beginning this month and will be offered at a Tampa location in late September or early October.
Customers at the Tampa store will have orders delivered to them in designated parking spots, while the Atlanta site will have a dedicated drive-through lane.
Publix plans to monitor the program during the next 12 months.
