Are you part of the home delivery craze? Grand Rapids based Meijer announced Wednesday that since they launched home delivery this fall, they have delivered over half a million times. They say they have surpassed 500,000 deliveries and are on pace to hit the one million mark by the end of the year.

Over 200 stores are participating making the service available to more than 10 million households in the Midwest. And since Meijer stores are open 24 hours - delivery times can really cater to the buyer's needs.

“As e-commerce continues to change the way people shop, we are proud to bring home delivery to the Midwest and innovate the way people shop our stores,” Meijer President & CEO Rick Keyes said. “Our goal was to quickly bring a high level of convenience to as many customers as possible, so surpassing a half million deliveries is a great start as we continue enhancing this personalized customer-first experience.”

Fun facts - more than 85,000 cases of water, 1 million eggs and 1.5 million pounds of bananas have been brought right to the customer's door.
