Publix makes shopping even more pleasurable
Publix is taking its "Where Shopping Is a Pleasure" motto to new heights with an Instacart expansion.
On June 28, the grocery delivery service Publix Delivery powered by Instacart will be available in Lakeland and its surrounding areas, including Auburndale, Bartow, Haines City, Mulberry, Plant City and Winter Haven. Publix Delivery is a collaboration between Publix and Instacart that allows customers to order Publix groceries online and have them delivered when and where they want.
Unlike similar grocery delivery services, Publix Delivery doesn’t require a membership fee. It’s also the only service that offers delivery of alcohol and liquor from Publix locations. Customers using Publix Delivery are more likely to view only in-stock items since Publix shares product availability by store directly with Instacart.
Currently, Publix Delivery powered by Instacart is offered in more than 92 percent of Publix’s operating area.
Publix is privately owned and operated by its more than 190,000 employees, with 2017 sales of $34.6 billion. Currently, Publix has 1,187 stores in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia.
