Online grocer Peapod is testing a display in Chicago pedestrian and transit areas that let shoppers scan products, download the Peapod app and perform other functions. The company, a division of Ahold USA, first tested the service at commuter rail stations in Philadelphia earlier this year. It is still available in nine locations there.
From the 60-foot display in Chicago, shoppers can download the Peapod app and begin shopping by scanning the product QR codes. They can also get $20 off of their first order by using the promo code on the display, per a company spokesperson.
