Additional features include:
Automatic pricing updates every Sunday;
Allows customers to view products to build a list quickly and browse circular specials;
Pre-loads product photos to make it easy to find items on the shelf;
Automatically puts customer items in categories for easy in-store use;
Allows customers to add any item with the text option; and
Allows customers to email their list and task someone else to do their shopping.
In addition to the app, the company also has debuted a new blog on its website. The blog, which can be accessed here, provides "[information] on healthy living, sustainability, new products and company news," according to one of the retailer’s Twitter posts. It also touts the slogan, "it’s in the bag … an unmistakably Weis blog on food and life."
The rollouts follow last year’s launch of the retailer’s new social media aggregator, which compiles all of Weis’ official social media outlets into a single, easy-to-read page.
