Mariano’s shoppers soon will be able to buy groceries online for pickup at select locations, piano music at checkout not included.

Mariano’s is the latest Chicago-area grocery retailer to announce a new online shopping option for busy consumers on the go. Later this month, Mariano’s will launch ClickList at its Vernon Hills location, followed by stores in Oak Lawn and Chicago’s Bucktown neighborhood this summer. Shoppers will be able to order their groceries for pickup through the ClickList app or website for a flat fee of $4.95.

Mariano’s plans to add ClickList to seven more stores by the end of the year, with continued rollout in the chain’s 41 stores planned for next year, said Lauren Edmonson, Mariano’s e-commerce manager.

“As much as we’re about the in-store experience, we’re also about convenience. This is very much to make people’s lives easier,” Edmonson said.
