Beginning immediately, Lowes Foods in Shelby, North Carolina at 1145 East Marion Street will offer Lowes Foods To Go personal shopping service to customers.  Lowes Foods To Go shopping orders are placed either on-line or by telephone. 

Lowes Foods To Go is offered six days per week for a nominal per shop fee of $4.95.  Discounted monthly and annual rates are also available.  Customers receive all the same great benefits that they receive when shopping inside a Lowes Foods store:

  • Fill your on-line cart with great sale items directly from the on-line circular
  • Double coupons!

With a three hour lead time, orders can then be picked up curbside at the store.  Customers never leave their vehicles as their personal shoppers load the groceries into the car and even provide portable credit card payment curbside.
