• Albertsons-owned Tom Thumb said yesterday that it "is introducing a new grocery delivery program with a fleet of state-of-the-art home delivery trucks in Dallas – Fort Worth today, offering customers convenient and affordable grocery shopping ... Tom Thumb is launching the service in the metroplex with new delivery trucks to support the North Texas area. The new trucks are equipped with multiple-temperature zones so the frozen items stay frozen and the vegetables are crisp when delivered."
