Kroger Click List: super-easy online shopping!


Our new Maryville Kroger has a fantastic feature called ClickList. Have you tried it yet? ClickList allows you ro place a grocery order online, and then pick your groceries up at Kroger without having to go inside at all! We have a baby, and sometimes shopping with kids is a bit overwhelming for me. While I also enjoy browsing inside the store, and looking for clearance deals and manager’s specials, there are times when I could see ClickList being very helpful. Here’s how it works:

1. Go here and log in to your Kroger account (or create one). You’ll need a Kroger Plus card.

2. Order whatever you need. Sale prices are noted, which is nice!

3. Place your order! There is a $4.95 convenience fee for ClickList, but it’s waived for the first three times you use the service.

4. Head to Kroger during your chosen time frame. Pull in to the Kroger ClickList area (it’s on the left side if you’re facing the building) and park in one of the designated spots. Call the number listed to let Kroger know you’re there, and they’ll bring your groceries out to you, You can use paper coupons, too! You’ll pay by credit card using an iPad, although they can make change for you inside if you prefer to use cash.

5. The ClickList employees will load your car and you’re done!

Have you used ClickList? What did you think?
