Hundreds of grocery stores begin accepting Apple Pay today

It looks like BI-LO, Harveys, and Winn-Dixie aren't the only grocery stores getting in on the Apple Pay action today. Hundreds of other stores from a few different chains are also starting to support Apple's payment platform. Among the new entrants are the likes of Jewel-Osco, Shaw's, and United Food.

This is great news for consumers as Apple Pay continues its steady rollout. It's important to note, however, that the added stores are, for the most part, limited to specific regions:

  • 180+ Jewel-Osco stores in the Chicago area
  • 150+ Shaws and Star Market stores in New England
  • 60+ United Food stores in Texas

These are in addition to a number of local and independent grocers across the country that will begin accepting Apple Pay today.
