Albertsons plans grocery pick-up drive-thru at Eagle Rd. store

Boise-based Albertsons has filed plans with the City of Boise to add a drive-thru to its store at 4700 N. Eagle Rd.

Architect CSHQA says the drive-thru is for "an online order pick-up area," and would replace an existing outdoor items area.

Workers would bring orders to customers who pull up to the drive-thru lane.

CSHQA says the online pick-up service has modest use at other stores. "Albertsons stores currently operating an online pick-up service are averaging about 20 customers per week," the filing notes.

Revised filings for a store in Boise's Barber Valley also show a drive-thru lane - though it is unclear if that store would offer a similar service.
