Empire Co. Ltd. says it’s launching its Voilà online grocery home-delivery service in Calgary, Edmonton and the surrounding areas.
The expansion into Alberta by the company that owns Sobeys and Safeway follows the growth of its e-commerce service in Ontario and Quebec.
The grocer says it will offer nearly 20,000 products from Safeway, Sobeys, Chalo! FreshCo and more.
The products will be sold at regular in-store prices and delivered in convenient one-hour delivery windows.
Empire says Alberta customers will be able to order online on the Voilà website or using its mobile app starting Monday.
It says it will provide customers in Alberta with the choice between home delivery and curbside pickup, with curbside pickup remaining available at 16 of its 141 stores in the region.
