A store that boasts 600 items from local vendors has announced a new streamlined online ordering system.

Almost a year ago, Fresh Thyme Market revamped its Grand Rapids location, 2470 Burton St SE. The 30,000-square-foot community-focused grocer with 71 stores in 10 states throughout the Midwest continues to improve upon the customer experience.

With a vibrant atmosphere and an array of exceptional offerings, this is a place where shopping becomes an adventure.

The journey starts online with a new and convenient high-tech grocery shopping system,  Fresh Thyme Pickup.  As part of the promotion, shoppers will receive $25 off all pickup orders of $100 or more through June 20. Say goodbye to tedious aisles and hello to hassle-free ordering. Simply browse the store’s impressive selection online, place your order, and pick it up at the store—effortless convenience at your fingertips.

Working with outside vendors like Shipt was going okay, according to the store’s management, but the new system relies on Fresh Thyme employees – with knowledge and expertise – to pick out the items.

Once inside the store, expect to be dazzled by an explosion of colors in the produce section. From luscious berries to crisp apples and an assortment of vibrant greens, Fresh Thyme’s commitment to local sourcing ensures freshness and flavor in every bite. “We sell more than 600 SKUs (items) from local vendors,” said Jake Runkel, who is in charge of finding local vendors.

But Fresh Thyme is not just about produce. It’s a haven for healthy living.

Since the remodel, the store features more than 4,000 new items. Shoppers will discover a wide range of products that cater to various dietary needs and preferences. From gluten-free options to plant-based alternatives and organic treasures, Fresh Thyme has carefully curated a selection that nourishes your body and satisfies your taste buds. It also sells an array of vitamins, health, beauty and cosmetic products, like locally-owned Maggie Ann Soap, whose colorful artisan soap bars are artfully displayed on an aisle end cap.

Prepare for a touch of magic as you explore Fresh Thyme’s unique and hard-to-find items, like wild-caught tuna, pre-packaged baked beets, and orange flesh watermelon. Unlock culinary delights with rare cheeses, exotic spice blends, and other hidden gems that will transform your meals into extraordinary dining experiences.
