Albertsons announced on Tuesday that it had reached an agreement with on-demand grocery delivery service Instacart to offer its customers the convenience of same-day deliveries in an hour.
Under the agreement, Instacart’s delivery service is expected to be available in more than 1,800 of Albertsons stores across the country by mid-2018. The move is one in a series of innovations Albertsons has rolled out recently — same day delivery, Drive-up & Go and the acquisition of meal-kit company Plated.
“Customers can shop how, when and where they choose, with the convenient option of quick delivery straight to their doorsteps,” said Shane Sampson, Albertsons Chief Marketing and Merchandising Officer.
“We couldn’t be more excited to work with the company’s legendary brands from coast-to-coast to offer customers a new convenient, time-saving option for shopping at their neighborhood store,” said Apoorva Mehta, Founder and CEO of Instacart.
