SpartanNash grocery store begins offering Apple Pay support at stores

The Michigan-based company has officially begun offering Apple Pay support at its grocery stores.

All 155 stores received the upgrades to its POS system and card readers as of Monday this week. Previously, the only way to use Apple Pay through a SpartanNash or SpartanNash-owned store was by making orders through Instacart, which was only in select areas of the U.S.

SpartanNash EVP and chief merchandising and marketing officer Lori Raya said to the Grand Rapids Business Journal (GRBJ) that it was a good move for the company during the coronavirus pandemic.

“We are proud to continue to adapt to our ever-changing environment and add additional ways to keep our store guests and associates safe, especially when these updates make shopping at our stores more convenient than ever. Contactless payment is a great option for many of our store guests who are looking to reduce both time and effort when it comes to the checkout process, in addition to our other payment options including cash, debit, credit and check.”

This is not the first major retailer we have seen begin to accept Apple Pay during the pandemic. Other stores have been Publix, Dollar Tree and Kroger-owned QFC stores.

What this also means for Apple Card users is that they will get 2% in Daily Cash for each purchase they make at the store.

The GRBJ also provided a list of other SpartanNash-owned stores where customers can find Apple Pay support at it.

“The contactless payment options are available at all Family Fare, Martin’s Super Markets, D&W Fresh Market, VG’s Grocery and Dan’s Supermarket locations, as well as Ada Fresh Market, Dillonvale IGA, Econofoods, Family Fresh Market, Forest Hills Foods, Fresh City Market, No Frills, Pick’n Save, SunMart, Supermercado Nuestra Familia and ValuLand stores throughout the Midwest.”
