Instacart partners with 10 new retailers
Instacart announced partnerships with more than 10 new retailers to make same-day delivery more accessible. Following its launch with Metro, Instacart now partners with the top five grocers across Canada, including Costco, Loblaws and Walmart. Same-day delivery via Instacart is available to approximately 90 percent of Canadian households and all 10 provinces.
“At Instacart, we’re proud to deepen our presence across Canada and serve as a retail enablement platform for key retailers countrywide, from the largest grocers to small businesses and local favourites,” said Chris Rogers, vice president of retail at Instacart. “We know that the demand for same-day delivery of groceries and essential goods is ubiquitous across Canada and we’re committed to creating more ways for Canadians to connect with retailers of all sizes. We’ll continue to increase our footprint across Canada and create the best online grocery shopping experience possible for both our retail partners and customers.”
Customers in Ontario can now shop from Metro’s wide selection of more than 26,000 grocery and pharmacy items to be delivered from the store to their door in as fast as one hour. In addition, customers can now order same-day delivery from discount retailer Giant Tiger, specialty grocer Galleria Supermarket, pet supplies retailer Menagerie Pet Shop, sports nutrition retailers Popeye’s Supplements and Healthy Planet, local favorites Dolce & Gourmondo, Nature’s Emporium, Super Natural Market, Grande Cheese Markets, and more. Discount retailer Dollarama, arts and crafts retailer Michaels and office supplies retailer Staples are now expanding their partnership with Instacart to offer same-day delivery countrywide.
“To better support our customers and access the rapidly growing market of same-day grocery delivery, we are thrilled to announce our partnership with Instacart to make it even easier for Canadians to shop smart and save smart every day,” said Simon Rodrigue, senior vice president and chief digital officer, Giant Tiger Stores Limited. “This service is an excellent advantage to our loyal customers and now more than 180 Giant Tiger stores will have access to our products for same-day delivery. This partnership will help more Canadians to experience Giant Tiger’s fun and easy shopping experience and solidify our position as Canada’s favourite discount retailer.”
