LAKELAND, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Publix Deli Online Easy Ordering, an online order placement of Publix Deli custom subs, wraps and sliced meats and cheeses, has expanded to 50 stores in select markets across the company’s operating area.
Publix customers may place their orders online or via mobile device by visiting www.publix.com/order. Once on the site, customers may select their desired deli custom sub, wrap and/or sliced meats and cheeses, specify pickup time and proceed with order placement. An order pickup number will be provided on the customer’s final order summary and emailed to them as well.
Orders will be staged at a designated location in the deli department and identified with “Online Easy Pickup” signage. Sale prices for the store that are effective the day of pickup will be honored. Payment is tendered at the time of pickup. No minimum order amount is required and no fee is charged for the service. Created with smartphone users in mind, the system will prompt customers to save order selections to their “Favorites” for future re-ordering convenience.
