MyWebGrocer, leading provider of digital solutions to the grocery and consumer packaged goods industries, recently added the Midwest division of Piggly Wiggly as a customer. Piggly Wiggly’s 102 grocery stores throughout Wisconsin and Illinois will now offer their customers a completely integrated digital platform across web, mobile and social media channels.
With MyWebGrocer’s digital shopping solutions, Piggly Wiggly Midwest customers will have access to planning tools including online circulars, personalized shopping lists, coupons and recipes. Online circulars offer an easy way for customers to stay informed about sales and specials, and are also integrated with a customer’s shopping lists and recipes, offering a seamless digital shopping experience.
Piggly Wiggly will be able to provide customers with the ability to shop the circular on their mobile device. The planning tools easily integrate from computer to mobile, so that items added to a shopping list on one platform are automatically updated on the other. Shoppers will be able to access Piggly Wiggly’s planning tools via an Android, iPhone or any other smart phone.
Piggly Wiggly customers will also have the option to access the weekly circular via Piggly Wiggly’s Facebook page to find specials at their local store. Shoppers will be able to click on the special items and add them to their shopping list or find recipes for on sale items.
Curt Alpeter, Executive Vice President for MyWebGrocer, says, “We are thrilled to partner with Piggly Wiggly Midwest to bring their grocery customers a host of advanced digital shopping tools.
