How Jeff Bezos Became the King of E-Commerce Inc.’s expansion into the grocery industry may be pushing more supermarket chains into the arms of Instacart Inc., a delivery service that helps retailers fill online orders.

Albertsons Cos., the second-largest traditional grocer in the U.S., is the latest to team up with the startup on same-day delivery. Instacart will provide its service at more than 1,800 of the chain’s stores by the middle of next year, Albertsons said on Tuesday.
