Fred Meyer’s Ballard store is joining the list of retailers that let customers order online and then pick up their orders curbside.

Starting Wednesday, the Ballard store, at 915 NW 45th St,, will offer the ClickList program, Kroger’s name for its online grocery ordering service. Customers can place their order at www.fredmeyer.com/onlineshopping, set a date and time for pickup (same-day pickup begins Thursday), and then pay for and pick up their items at a pick-up location at the store. (Only credit or debit cards are accepted.)

So far, the service is limited to grocery and food items.

The first three orders are free. After that, there is a $4.95 fee for each order.

Fred Meyer has been rolling out its ClickList service in Oregon, Idaho and other locations in Washington state, including in Kent, Federal Way and Renton. The Ballard store will be the first in Seattle to feature it.

The company says it spends about $230,000 to launch ClickList at each store.

Retailers including Walmart and CVS have recently launched or expanded their online order and curbside pickup programs. Target, on the other hand, apparently shut down its program after running a pilot.
