On Jan 29, 2019, a Trader Joe’s representative told Business Insider that the grocery retailer will stop its grocery delivery service in New York after 10 years of offering the service and that the company did not plan offer delivery services in other markets. The grocery delivery program will end on March 1, because it was too costly for the company Business Insider reported.
“Instead of passing along unsustainable cost increases to our customers, removing delivery will allow us to continue offering outstanding values — quality products for great everyday prices, and to make better use of valuable space in our stores,” Kenya Friend-Daniel told the media outlet. “This was not a decision we made lightly. We value our customers and all that they do to come shop with us,” Friend-Daniel said.
