Instacart expands partnership with another food retailer
The company announced that it will broaden its service area with Schnucks to bring same-day grocery delivery to shoppers throughout the Midwest.
On July 13, Schnucks customers in Missouri (Cape Girardeau, Columbia and Jefferson City) and Illinois (Carbondale, Champaign, Bloomington, Normal, Pekin, Peoria, Savoy, Springfield, Urbana) can visit schnucksdelivers.com to fill their virtual carts with all their favorite items -- from produce and meat to everyday essentials -- and have them delivered straight to their doorstep by Instacart, in as little as an hour.
"Schnucks is committed to giving our customers premier products and the best shopping experience," said Andrew Nadin, Chief Marketing Officer, Schnuck Markets. "Partnering with Instacart to offer Schnucks Delivers online grocery shopping and same-day delivery will allow us to further nourish our communities and provide shoppers the kind of options they expect in order to manage their busy lifestyles."
To celebrate the partnership expansion, Instacart is offering Schnucks customers a free one year subscription to Instacart Express (offer expires 8/13), which enables unlimited free grocery delivery on orders over $35.
Schnucks and Instacart first joined forces to bring same-day grocery delivery to customers in February 2017 with the launch of Schnucks Delivers Powered by Instacart. Since launching in St. Louis, Mo., Rockford, Ill., and Evansville, Ind., customers have embraced the service, the company says.
Based on strong initial results -- including the most successful launch in Instacart's history in St. Louis, Mo. -- Schnucks and Instacart are doubling down on the partnership to bring the winning combination of products from Schnucks stores and the convenience of same-day delivery to more customers across Missouri and Illinois.
"Instacart's expansion across the Heartland of America, to meet the goal of serving 80% of American households by 2018, is driven by partnerships with the nation's best retailers like Schnucks," said Nilam Ganenthiran, Instacart's Chief Business Officer. "We are thrilled to bring same-day delivery to more Schnucks customers across the Midwest."
