(Oct. 1) BOISE, Idaho — Albertsons has added a region to its online grocery service — its own home town.

The company recently expanded its service to include 13 Boise area ZIP codes, bringing the total to seven metropolitan areas now served by Albertsons.com.

Other available delivery areas include:

  • Las Vegas.


  • Los Angeles.


  • Portland, Ore.


  • Seattle.


  • San Diego.


  • San Francisco.



Customers in Boise can now log on to the Albertsons.com Web site and have their order filled by Albertsons’ e-shoppers – staff members trained to shop for customers as though they were shopping for themselves. A fee of $9.95 is charged for delivery service, but a pick-up option is available for $4.95.

In July, Safeway.com also expanded its reach into Seattle using a similar model to Albertsons, with its own personal shoppers and its own fleet of trained drivers.

Safeway.com also serves some of the other markets served by Albertsons, including:

  • Portland, Ore.


  • the San Francisco Bay area.


  • Los Angeles.


  • San Diego.


  • Las Vegas.
