Big Y Foods has launched a new eCommerce platform, myPicks, which allows customers to order their items online for curbside pickup. The company, which operates four markets and two convenience store/gas stations in the Berkshires, has been testing the new service over the past several weeks.

If you do not have an account, creating an account is easy at Big Y and placing an order is simple on myPicks. Once you have successfully logged in or signed up, just follow this easy process:

I went online to check it out, it was so easy!

Log in to myPicks, and simply add grocery items to your cart.

Then, select a convenient pickup location and time. We will be adding a delivery service soon and will alert you when it reaches your zip code. After you've chosen a pickup day and time, head over to the checkout.

You'll receive an email or SMS text alert, whichever you prefer, that your order has been received and ready for pick up. Orders are accepted up until midnight for the next day.

When your order is ready for pickup, simply drive up to one of our four designated parking spaces and call the number on the sign. A store associate will immediately come out and load your groceries from our carefully monitored, temperature-controlled lockers into your car. We will give you an order summary to take with you from your personal shopper,they may even sneak in a sample for you to try, on tn BigY!

Their shoppers are trained to choose only the very best products, from fruit and vegetables to meats and deli items. You will be amazed and delighted at the quality of our products, from fresh to frozen.

Your Big Y World Class Market helps you shop fresh produce, select weekly staples, or simply search for your items easily. Once you have placed an online order, you can even go back and see what you ordered last time! Item charges are based on the price in effect at the time of your order, so you never have to worry about sale prices even if it is days away!
