Costco enters the grocery delivery business
Costco retailer launches into grocery delivery in collaboration with the American company Instacart.
Since Thursday, it has been possible to receive groceries the same day without having to go to the store, by ordering them from one of Costco’s 76 participating Canadian stores.
Instacart, which already delivers to more than 140 chains across North America, promises to bring orders to customers in less than two hours.
Same day delivery is available to all customers with or without a Costco subscription via the Instacart application. An Instacart buyer will pick up and deliver the order within the time period specified by the customer, as communicated.
You do not need to be a Costco member to benefit from this new service. Those who don’t have their membership card can still access the variety of food in the stores via the Instacart application.
Members are still privileged. The companies launched a new Costco Canada members-only website offering exclusive member benefits and access to same-day delivery options through Instacart.
Delivery is available for the majority of Costco’s grocery products, including fresh produce, meat and seafood, snacks, deli meats, frozen foods, baby and pet products.
Instacart said its new partnership with Costco Canada follows a successful collaboration with Costco in the United States. Costco first partnered with Instacart in February 2016 and now offers same-day delivery of groceries to all of its 548 U.S. clubs.
Grocery delivery service is available to more than 85 percent of U.S. households and 70 percent of Canadian households.
Instacart has partnered with more than 400 national, regional and local retailers to provide grocery delivery and pick-up services to more than 30,000 stores in 5,500 cities across North America.
