• The Baltimore Sun reports that Ahold-owned Giant Food "is expanding store pick-up sites for consumers who shop through online grocer Peapod.

"The Landover-based supermarket chain said this week it has added supermarkets in Bowie and in Sterling, Va., to a growing list of stores where Peapod orders can be delivered. In just the last four months, Giant has added pick-up locations to 20 stores in Maryland and Virginia. The retailer also recently opened a pick-up and fuel station facility in Chevy Chase."
