Instacart adds another grocer to its network
Instacart is teaming up with Lowes Foods, one of the top 50 grocery banners in America, to bring same-day delivery to over 350,000 Raleigh-Durham households.
Instacart customers in Raleigh-Durham can now purchase groceries from Lowes Foods by visiting instacart.com or downloading the Instacart app to fill their virtual carts with all their favorite items and have them delivered to their doorstep in as little as an hour. At checkout, customers can add their Lowes Foods Fresh Rewards number to continue earning gas rewards.
With Instacart, customers can get the premium quality products they expect from Lowes Foods -- from fresh produce, meat and everyday essentials to a bottle of wine or craft beer from Lowes Foods' extensive Beer Den -- while getting back something truly important: time.
"Our guests are leading increasingly busy lives and anything we can do to offer them convenience makes all the difference," said Tim Lowe, President of Lowes Foods. "Lowes Foods is a family owned, Carolinas based retailer founded in 1954 and a pioneer in online ordering. We are proud to have launched personal shopping before the internet was widely adopted through our phone-in order service. Joining an industry leader like Instacart allows us to give our guests an additional option for home delivery that is fast and convenient."
To celebrate the partnership, Instacart is offering Lowes Foods customers $20 off their first order of $35 or more -- plus a free first time delivery -- when they enter the code LOWESFOODS20 at checkout (offer expires 10/31).
"Partnering with the best retailers nationwide is essential to the success of Instacart," said Sarah Mastrorocco, Head of Retail Partnerships for Instacart. "Lowes Foods is a trusted brand that has earned its reputation as a homegrown grocery store that supports local businesses and farms. We are excited to partner with a retailer of Lowes Foods' caliber to offer same-day delivery to Raleigh-Durham customers."
Founded in San Francisco in 2012, Instacart has quickly scaled to over 130 markets nationwide and partnered with retailers across the United States, including popular national chains as well as local, regional grocers.
