BRAINTREE, Mass. — In a new venture designed to take on warehouse clubs, Peapod and Stop & Shop said Tuesday that they have opened a new facility here dedicated to extending their grocery delivery service to schools and businesses in the Boston area. “This is a high growth potential area of our business and we believe we can offer a unique value proposition — supermarket selection at supermarket values — with no subscription or high minimum order requirements,” Andrew Parkinson, chief executive officer of Peapod, said in a statement. The new facility serves downtown Boston as well as Allston, Arlington, Belmont, Brighton, Brookline, Cambridge, Charlestown, and Waltham. Customers may choose from a variety of morning and afternoon delivery windows and can shop from more than 4,000 products including fresh produce, snacks, beverages, cleaning supplies and office products. The new facility also offers a range of catering options such as deli platters, cheese trays, and fruit trays, officials said. Peapod, based in Chicago, and Stop & Shop, Quincy, Mass., are owned by Ahold, Amsterdam.
