Kroger launches online delivery service in Houston

Kroger (NYSE:KR) announced that it has launched online grocery service in five Houston locations. The ClickList service will now be offered at the Baytown, Cypress, Galveston, Kingwood and Tomball stores.

To use the service, shoppers place their orders online and then pick up their groceries curbside, reported KHOU. ClickList costs $4.95 but the fee is waived for each shopper's first three orders.

As all of the orders are placed online or in the car via mobile, Kroger at this time is only accepting credit and debit cards for ClickList transactions.

The company hopes to expand to other Houston stores in the next few months. The company first announced it would begin ClickList in the Dallas and Houston markets back in April, adding 20 stores in each new market, in addition to the 46 stores that already had the service available.

Kroger joins a growing list of retailers – Target, Walmart and CVS, to name a few – that are offering buy-online and pick-up curbside via a mobile app.
