Natural Grocers and Instacart Partner to Offer Grocery Delivery

Instacart has partnered with Natural Grocers to provide grocery delivery service to customers in Denver in as little as one hour. Delivery to Denver metro area residents and businesses begins on March 20, 2015. Natural Grocers will be the sixth Denver-area grocery store offering delivery service through Instacart. Customers can choose from the full selection of Natural Grocers' local, natural and organic products on the Instacart marketplace. In addition to offering only USDA Certified Organic fresh produce and natural and organic meat and grocery items, customers can find a large selection of body care products and dietary supplements. Customers can place orders on the online or through Instacart's iOS and Android apps. Instacart Personal Shoppers receive orders on their smartphone, handpick the items at Natural Grocers, and then make the delivery.

Instacart Partners with Petco to Provide Same Day Delivering in Select Urban Locations

Instacart partnered with Petco to provide same-day delivery to customers in San Francisco and Boston. Orders can be placed via the website or Instacart's mobile app, and customers can choose to get items within an hour, two hours, or later. Fees are $3.99 or $5.99 per delivery. Instacart "personal shoppers" will receive orders on their phones, go to a Petco store to pick up items, and make the delivery. Delivering Excellence newsletter is reporting weekly how these trends are changing the growth of various same day delivery programs and organizations. Partnering with a pet-supplies retailer seems especially promising, considering that some supplies, like dog food or kitty litter, can be big heavy bags that are hard to transport — not to mention that many people dote on their pets enough to splurge on delivery fees.
